Unfortunately, there is no “quick fix” when it comes to arthritis treatment for the hands or any location in the body. But there are steps one can take to minimize its symptoms and to maintain the function of one’s joints.
The course of treatment will depend upon the severity of one’s condition, how many joints are affected, which hand is affected and one’s activity level, age, health, and lifestyle. Of course, you should consult a medical professional for advice on the best course of action.
Wearing hand splints for arthritis when one’s symptoms flare up is a common element of treatment. Wrist braces for arthritis ease stress stemming from use and other activities and they help support the joint.
As previously noted, the warmth and compression of this hand splint for arthritis can help with stiffness, grinding sensations, swelling and pain that are often symptoms of arthritis of the hand or wrist.
Another important consideration that this compression wrist wrap takes into account is that it should allow the function of the hand and wrist when it is worn. Not using the hand can lead to muscle deterioration known as atrophy. Muscle strength is important for stabilizing the joints.
For this same reason, arthritis braces for hands should be worn at intervals rather than continuously.
Besides wearing a hand and wrist compression brace, other common modes of treatment include taking anti-inflammatory medications to deal with pain and swelling, ingesting neutraceuticals (dietary supplements that may help rebuild cartilage), receiving anti-inflammatory medication injections or undergoing surgery when conservative methods fail to bring relief.
After surgery one will likely need to wear a cast or immobilizing splint for some time in addition to taking part in physical therapy to restore function to the hand and wrist.
This versatile arthritis wrist wrap soothes one’s arthritis symptoms while not interfering with the function of the hand or wrist. Following is a list breaking down its key features.
