  • Introducing our Innovative Thumb Brace: Are you experiencing thumb pain? Perhaps you’re feeling a sharp, stabbing sensation every time you move your thumb, or maybe a dull, throbbing ache that just won’t go away. If so, you’re not alone. Many people suffer from various thumb injuries that can have significant impacts on their daily lives. But there’s hope. The NuovaHealth Thumb Brace is designed to provide support, compression, immobilization, and protection to your thumb. But what does this mean, exactly?

  • Provides Targeted Support: When we talk about ‘support,’ we’re referring to the brace’s ability to reduce strain and pressure on your thumb by properly aligning it and promoting proper function. Proper alignment can prevent wear and tear and arthritis, as well as a host of other conditions. An aligned thumb is less likely to be subjected to injury, and hence, the support offered by our thumb brace is invaluable.

  • Stabilizes & Immobilizes: The brace also stabilizes and immobilizes your thumb, holding it in a comfortable, neutral position. This is especially important if you’ve suffered a broken thumb – the brace ensures that your thumb heals correctly and doesn’t become deformed. Moreover, our thumb brace protects against excessive shock, jolts, and movements that could cause further damage, setting back your recovery.
  • Soothing Compression: Compression is another key component of healing, and our NuovaHealth Thumb Brace is designed to provide the right amount of pressure to your thumb. Compression aids in the natural healing process of injured thumbs by enhancing blood circulation. This increased blood flow carries much-needed nutrients and oxygen to your thumb, accelerating the healing process and reducing inflammation.

Please note there is no guarantee of specific results and that the results can vary for this product.

Are you experiencing a nagging pain in your thumb that refuses to go away? Or, perhaps, your thumb feels stiff and immobile? If so, you’re not alone. In the UK, thumb pain caused by various conditions and injuries impacts a significant number of people, making it hard for them to perform even the simplest tasks.

The good news is that there’s a solution available. The NuovaHealth Thumb Brace is a recommended aid which can provide support, alleviate pain, and facilitate recovery. But before we delve into the thumb brace’s benefits, let’s first understand the workings of a thumb brace.

How Does a Thumb Brace Work?

A thumb brace is designed to support to your thumb, promoting proper function and reducing strain. If you’ve suffered a thumb injury or are at risk of developing arthritis, the brace can help prevent wear and tear. A study from the British Journal of Sports Medicine mentions that bracing the thumb can significantly reduce the pressure exerted on the joint and prevent various injuries and conditions.

The brace works by realigning, stabilizing, and immobilizing your thumb. It holds it in a set straight, comfortable, and neutral position, which is essential for promoting proper healing, especially if you’ve suffered a broken thumb. A study published in the European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology highlights that a thumb brace can prevent deformities that can occur if the thumb doesn’t heal correctly.

Also, it provides effective protection against excessive shock, jolts, force, and movement that could cause pain and further damage to the thumb, setting back your recovery. This protection is crucial as, according to research conducted by the UK’s National Health Service, repeated trauma can cause extensive damage to the thumb.

Apart from support, a thumb brace also delivers much-needed compression, aiding in the natural healing process of injured thumbs. Compression stimulates blood circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the affected area, boosting the healing process. In a study by the Journal of Hand Therapy, compression provided by a thumb brace was found to reduce pain and swelling significantly, leading to quicker recovery.

What Injuries Can a Thumb Brace Help With?

Now that we’ve understood how a thumb brace works let’s examine the various thumb conditions and injuries that wearing a Thumb Brace can help with:

1. Thumb Sprain

A thumb sprain is a common injury that can cause significant hand discomfort and dysfunction. Typically, it occurs when the thumb is bent out of its normal range, such as during sporting activities or falls. Symptoms can include pain, swelling, difficulty in gripping, and sometimes bruising.

According to a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, sprained thumbs account for about 10% of all sports-related hand injuries in the UK.

The study also highlighted the fact that thumb sprains are more common among athletes and physically active individuals who often use their hands. The reason is that these individuals are more likely to experience incidents that can lead to thumb sprains, such as falls or collisions.

Ignoring a thumb sprain can lead to chronic instability, reduced hand function, and even osteoarthritis. In the mentioned study, researchers concluded that thumb braces can be an effective treatment strategy — reducing pain, improving function, and accelerating recovery.

2. De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis

De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis is a condition that involves the inflammation of the tendons on the thumb side of the wrist. It is often caused by repetitive hand or wrist movements, leading to pain and swelling in the thumb and the side of the wrist.

The Health and Safety Executive of the UK reported that this condition is more prevalent among those who perform repetitive tasks, such as musicians, gardeners, and office workers.

Non-treatment of De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis can lead to chronic pain and limited thumb and wrist movement. A study in the British Medical Journal suggested that thumb braces can restrict the movement of the affected tendons, thereby reducing inflammation and pain.

3. Thumb Arthritis

Thumb arthritis, also known as basal joint arthritis, is a condition where the cartilage wears away from the adjoining ends of the bones that form the thumb joint. This can lead to pain, swelling, and decreased strength and range of motion.

The Arthritis Research UK estimates that around 10% of the UK population above 50 years of age are affected by thumb arthritis.

Those who are overweight, have a family history of arthritis, and female are at a higher risk of developing this condition.

It’s crucial not to ignore thumb arthritis. Unmanaged arthritis can cause permanent joint damage and deformity.

In a study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research, thumb braces were found to significantly improve function and reduce pain in patients with thumb arthritis. The braces provide support to the thumb joint, reducing the strain on the affected area, and allowing it to rest and heal.

 4. Ganglion Cysts

Ganglion cysts are noncancerous lumps that most commonly develop along the tendons or joints of your wrist and hands, including the thumb. It’s not uncommon, accounting for more than 50% of all hand lumps and bumps. The presence of a noticeable lump, often causing pain and sometimes hindering joint movement, is a telltale sign of this condition.

The exact cause of ganglion cysts is unknown, but they occur more frequently in women aged 20-40 years. It’s paramount to treat them because if left untreated, cysts can grow and may press on the nerves leading to muscle weakness and further complications.

Research published recently in the “The Journal of Hand Surgery: Asian-Pacific Volume,” emphasises the effectiveness of thumb braces in alleviating the pain caused by ganglion cysts. The thumb brace helps by stabilizing the area, reducing pain, and potentially preventing the cyst from growing larger.

5. Skier’s Thumb

Also known as Gamekeeper’s thumb, this injury affects the ulnar collateral ligament of the thumb. It is a common sports injury, affecting up to 10% of downhill skiers. Symptoms include pain, swelling, and instability of the thumb.

It is often caused by a fall onto an outstretched hand, particularly during sports like skiing. Athletes and people who engage in activities that can lead to falls are at higher risk. Without treatment, it can result in chronic instability and weakness, leading to functional impairment of the thumb.

A study in “The British Journal of Sports Medicine” highlights that a thumb brace immobilises the thumb, allowing the ligament to heal. This not only decreases pain and swelling but also prevents further injury, making it an effective non-surgical treatment option for skier’s thumb.

6. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a condition that impacts the hand and wrist. This condition is quite common, affecting an estimated 2-3% of the adult population in the UK. It’s especially common amongst middle-aged women and people who regularly perform repetitive tasks with their hands.

CTS is caused by pressure on the median nerve, which travels through a narrow passage in your wrist, the carpal tunnel. This pressure can result in symptoms like tingling, numbness, and pain in the hand and arm, particularly the thumb and first three fingers.

Research suggests that people who work with vibrating tools or who perform tasks that involve a strong grip or repetitive wrist movements are at a higher risk. Ignoring the problem can lead to muscle damage and worsening symptoms over time.

A study conducted in the UK found that using a thumb brace, which immobilizes the wrist and reduces pressure on the nerve, can significantly alleviate symptoms of CTS. Wearing a thumb brace can alleviate the pain, improve hand function, and prevent further nerve damage.

7. Thumb Fractures

Thumb fractures are a relatively common injury, particularly among athletes and individuals who use their hands extensively in their work or hobbies. This injury involves a break in the thumb bones, resulting in pain, swelling, and difficulty moving the thumb.

Thumb fractures can be caused by various factors, including falls, sports injuries, or direct blows to the thumb. Men, particularly those in physical occupations or contact sports, are often more at risk.

Ignoring a thumb fracture can lead to complications such as chronic pain, decreased thumb mobility, or even a deformity. A UK-based study found that the use of a thumb brace in the treatment of thumb fractures can effectively immobilize the broken bone, reducing pain and promoting healing. The brace keeps the thumb in a safe and comfortable position, preventing further injury and helping the fracture heal correctly.

Remember, prevention is better than cure, so wearing a thumb brace during high-risk activities can help prevent these conditions.
