Thumb Support for Thumb Sprains - Aligns thumb correctly

Overviews and Uses

The thumb support is a lightweight design that is built with the painful thumb in mind. It’s breathable neoprene material means it can be worn comfortably all day. Along the thumb is a removable metal bar to support and maintain the alignment of the thumb joints from the wrist to the tip of the thumb. It aims to protect the joint from overuse and any strain.

Having a rigid metal bar reduces unwanted movement without having to rest it all together or avoid things. It continues to allow typing, gripping and driving without straining the thumb.

 

Whether using the brace to completely rest the joint or to continue with activities- this brace offers rigidity along the thumb joints, offering protection through movement and support with rest. It limits the risk of re-injury and worsening of symptoms.

Common Thumb Injuries

De Quervains 

A painful condition that affects the tendons as they run through a sheath over the wrist. There can be tenderness, swelling and snapping from the tendon as it becomes inflamed. It is best managed with immobilisation in a support brace and plenty of rest.

 

Osteoarthritis 

The thinning of the cartilage on the joint surfaces, particularly at the base of the thumb. Causing pain and stiffness in the hand and thumb. It can affect grip and fine movements. Symptoms often respond well to more thumb support.

A lot of us do not have the capabilities that we did when we were younger. Whether it be due to injuries, ageing or a particular condition, our joints change over time. The same can be applied to our ankles. As we use them every single day, our ankles can get worn out over time.


There are many ways to overcome this, some tend to go for treatment whilst others use different methods. One way to recover is from using an Ankle Support, which is a great way to recover from injuries, provide support and to improve stamina and stability.

Running is an excellent hobby, with it keeping you in great shape whilst also being fun and enjoyable. It has been a staple exercise since humans first came into existence. Many people have created great careers from running, and it has created many opportunities for us all as it is easy and convenient.


However, it is common to come into complications with running. Injuries happen more often than you’d think, and some people who are injured want to continue running. As it becomes such an important part of our day, we seem to miss the endorphin rush that running brings us.
