Do I Need a Finger Extension Splint?
Needing to splint or immobilize your fingers/hands is extremely common due to the endless amounts of conditions, injuries, and trauma that can occur in your fingers, hands, and wrists. Finding a universal brace such as this one is hard to find! This hand splint can be worn to help treat broken, torn, jammed or fractured fingers/phalanges. It also gives relief for those suffering from trigger finger (stenosing tenosynovitis), rheumatoid arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, post-stroke finger curling, tendonitis, mallet finger and more.
How Does This Finger Stabilizer Help Treat…
This brace is a great option for trigger finger as it helps prevent your finger from the locking sensation that occurs due to the swelling in your tendons. You can also wear this splint overnight, which can reduce the pain and discomfort that many individuals experience in the morning. Trigger finger release surgery is a very common procedure for individuals with this condition. Wearing a rigid splint after surgery will give tremendous comfort to your finger.
Sprains, Breaks, and Jams?
It’s no surprise that immobilization is a must after you’ve sprained, broken, or jammed your fingers but wearing a hard cast can be irritating. Wearing this splint for broken finger is a more comfortable option compared to a cast. With this splint, you receive the same full support and immobilization of a cast but without all the irritation and itching.
For lower degrees of sprains and jams, this type of phalanx splint brace can be removed when needed and the double middle straps can be detached if you desire. For those individuals, wearing a foam splint is more comfortable than buddy tapes or oval splints which can cause sticky residue and needed to be reapplied frequently.
Conditions such as Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tendonitis?
Wearing a hand splint for finger and hand conditions such as arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tendonitis is very beneficial in reducing swelling and inflammation. For many finger and hand conditions, the motion of simply bending, moving, and curling your fingers may increase your symptoms. This remedy for arthritis of the hand will help prevent such symptoms! You can also apply the brace when you experience symptoms throughout the day.
After Finger Surgery?
If you’ve recently had finger, hand, or wrist surgery/therapy, wearing this support will help speed up your recovery process. The removable splint feature is great when you need to remove bandages or place ice over your hand to reduce swelling.
This medical index finger brace not only helps treat injuries but can be used to protect and guard your fingers as well. For those more prone to hand injuries such as athletes that play sports, have an occupation involving frequent finger motions (manual labor), and older or elderly men and women may want to wear this brace as a preventative measure.
