New Splint for CMC Arthritis

January 18, 2018 @ 10:18 am posted by Brace and Support Help

Purchase this CMC thumb brace.

As we get older osteoarthritis will develop.  It’s just a normal part of aging.  And it usually develops in the joints that we use the most and receive the most stress.  That’s why osteoarthritis is often called, “wear and tear arthritis”.  Pain and disability are the most common complaints of CMC thumb arthritis.

Thumb splints and thumb braces come in many shapes and sizes.  Beware of using a thumb brace that completely immobilizes the thumb.  You need to use your thumb or the muscles surrounding it will atrophy (shrink).  You want the opposite.  You want to use your thumb so the muscles surrounding it get stronger.  So you need a thumb brace that positions your thumb in such a way that it reduces pain but still allows you to use it.

That’s what the thumb brace pictured above can do.  The CMC Thumb Brace is easily put on and taken off with one hand, and provides support that doesn’t limit other joint movement.  It is durable, flexible, and is easily cleaned.  And most important it will reduce your pain.

CMC Thumb Arthritis

January 10, 2018 @ 10:17 am posted by Brace and Support Help

The thumb pain associated with CMC Arthritis can be severe.  A decrease in range of motion and strength can make it painful to shake hands, open doors, and forget about opening that jar of pickles.  Treatment can involve splints, braces, and medications.  If its really bad surgery may be an option.

Pain is the primary symptom.  It’s felt at the base of the thumb when gripping, grasping, pinching or forcing an object.  The thumb can also be stiff, tender, and swollen.  The thumb will get weaker and lose range of motion.  And it may start to look a bit deformed.

CMC arthritis is common in women over 40 years old.  Obesity, previous injury,  and heredity are also risk factors.  CMC Arthritis used to be called “Game Keepers” thumb.   Back in the day the people that twisted the necks of rabbits for a living (game keepers) would develop CMC arthritis from the repetitive motion of breaking necks.  Gross.

a CMC Thumb brace is a great treatment option.  Learn more about the thumb splint shown below:

Black Friday Back Braces

Warm and Form Back Support

Warm and form back braces.  If you’ve been putting off ordering your brace, now is a good time.  The holidays are here, ain’t nobody got time for back pain.

Did you go to the mall this morning and your back was aching?  Possibly twinged something lifting the turkey out of the oven?  I hurt my back yesterday going to for a walk.  Yes, I know it sounds silly – but it happened.  I’m close to 50 years old, and had the brilliant idea to climb over the railing of a staircase.  I’ll spare you the details, but I stepped funny, fell on my butt, and woke up this morning with an old familiar friend, back pain.

The next few weeks are going to be busy ones.  Take care of the back pain now, or it will take care of you.

Boxer Fracture Splint

November 8, 2017 @ 1:12 pm posted by Brace and Support Help

Boxer Fracture Splint

Did you punch something harder than your hand?  It happens.  The boxer fracture, simply put, is a broken pinky.  It’s painful and aggravating.  Generally it happens when punching something.  A splint is a much better treatment option than a cast for this type of fracture.  A splint can be removed, and washed.  Also, it’s much easier to sleep in than a plaster cast.  A splint is lower profile (smaller), and significantly more comfortable.   Absolutely worth trying.   Learn more about the TKO Boxer Fracture Splint.
