Introduction to an MT's right thumb

Name: Right Thumb
Nickname: Artie (it's a play on R.T)
Interests: Opening things, expressing positivity ("O.K." or "Everything's cool"), scratching the side of a cat's face, palpation, alleviating pain in people
Moved by: abductor pollicis brevis, adductor pollicis, first dorsal interosseous, flexor pollicis brevis, opponens pollicis, abductor pollicis longus,
extensor pollicis brevis, extensor pollicis longus, flexor pollicis longus
Fears: Cuts, bites, mutilation, being severed from right hand and hyper extension which leads to no longer being able to work (Artie's nightmare)
Hopes: To be the Jason Bourne of Trigger Point therapy
Friends: Right hand, especially right knuckles since they share the same interests in trigger point handling

Gaelic lesson #6: "ordog" pronounced "ordoag", meaning "thumb"
