Thumb & Wrist Supports

Thumb and wrist supports can be very useful in the treatment of sports injuries. But you can also use them for accidental injuries and workplace demands. Common conditions that thumb and wrists splints can help with include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis and repetitive strain injuries. They can also be used for a sprained wrist or broken wrist. Or for fractured scaphoids, Colles fractures, fractured radiuses and fractured ulnas. Repetitive movements of the wrist and fingers can lead to overuse injuries. Supports and splints can help to help to prevent overloading.

Yes, often we don't realise how much we use our thumbs until they become painful. Like any synovial joint, excess load can lead to joint degeneration and arthritis. Unfortunately, as arthritis is a degenerative disease there is little we can do to cure the problem completely. But the symptoms of arthritis can be managed to help reduce pain and improve function and quality of life. Thumb and wrist splints can help reduce aggravation and pain around the joints.

Hot and cold packs can also be applied to reduce pain and minimise discomfort. Long-term management of arthritis includes modifying any aggravating activities. These may include typing, writing or driving. You can do this either through postural changes or specific equipment. Research shows that gentle movement can help reduce the symptoms of arthritis. So gentle range of motion exercises of the thumb and hand can provide relief. These can be done using elastic bands or low weights. These help to strengthen the supporting muscles and tendons. Or, you can seek advice from a chartered physiotherapist. They can set you specific exercises to perform daily.

If you have fallen and injured your thumb, you may need an X-ray. This will help determine whether the injury is soft tissue (muscles, tendons and ligaments) or a bone fracture. If the pain does not settle in a few days, seek advice from a doctor.

If a fracture is identified with an X-ray, it will need immobilisation. This is usually achieved at the thumb with a spica splint. The location of the thumb fracture may determine the prognosis of the injury. Fractures to the base of the metacarpal bone often remain un-displaced. So immobilisation for 6-8 weeks usually allows adequate healing. Although the fracture may have occurred to the shaft, neck or head of the metacarpal. Then, the two parts of the bone may have become displaced. This may require surgery to fixate the fractured pieces with pins, plates or wires. After immobilisation, the thumb will be stiff and weak. With the guidance of a chartered physiotherapist, you should start gentle stretching and range of motion exercises. These can help to regain function and strength around the joint.

A thumb spica splint is a splint that offers support to the thumb and wrist. But, it allows the other four digits to still move and function normally. A spica splint is ideal to help support the structures around the thumb after an injury. It can also be used when pain is caused by repetitive movements or arthritis.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is often caused by repetitive wrist and hand movements. Typing, operating machinery, writing and drawing are all activities that can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal tunnel splints can help by supporting the wrist during these movements. This ensures that ligaments, tendons and muscles around the joints are not overloaded. A wrist support can greatly help you continue with daily activities. It can also help to minimise symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. But the root cause should still be found. Then, exercises and stretches can be implemented. This will ensure that a wrist splint for carpal tunnel does not become relied upon.

You rely on your thumb, hand and wrist for both sports and everyday tasks. So if you've damaged this part of your body, it can have a massive inconvenience to your life. Lifting a kettle, writing or using cutlery can all be affected.

Wrist Supports for Tendonitis

A wrist support or wrist splint can help ease tendonitis pain and symptoms. It does so by reducing your movement and giving the tendon time to rest and heal. All whilst preventing further injury. Gentle stretching exercises can help ease the symptoms of tendonitis. Seek advice from a chartered physiotherapist. They can set you specific exercises to perform daily. And they can help you prevent the condition from worsening. Compression braces and cold compresses can help reduce swelling caused by Tendonitis.
