If you’ve ever experienced the frustration and discomfort of thumb pain, then you understand how debilitating it can be. From texting on our phones to gripping our steering wheels, our thumbs are constantly at work. But when our thumbs start to hurt, even the simplest actions can become challenging.

Various conditions can lead to thumb pain, disrupting your daily life and making even the simplest tasks a challenge. However, there is a solution – the NuovaHealth Thumb Support Brace.

The NuovaHealth Thumb Support Brace is expertly designed to compress, support, and protect your thumb from further damage while it heals. But before we delve further into that, let’s break down what might be causing this discomfort and how a thumb brace can help.

How A Thumb Brace Works

A thumb brace is specially designed to provide much-needed support to your injured thumb. By supporting the thumb, the brace promotes proper function and helps reduce pressure and strain to prevent injury or wear and tear and the onset of conditions such as arthritis.

The thumb brace also offers a level of immobilization, holding your thumb in a set, comfortable, and neutral position. This feature is especially crucial if you have suffered a broken thumb. Ensuring that the thumb heals in the correct position avoids the risk of deformity. Failure to use a thumb brace in such situations may lead to complications, including pain, reduced mobility, and even the need for additional corrective procedures.

Thumb braces are not just about immobilization; they also offer protection against excessive shock, jolts, force, and movement. Such occurrences could not only cause pain but also hinder the healing process. By wearing a thumb brace, you’re equipping your thumb with a protective shield, reducing the risk of further injury and accelerating recovery.

Beyond support and protection, thumb braces offer an added benefit – compression. This feature aids the natural healing process. A thumb brace applies a consistent level of pressure to the injured area, enhancing blood flow and reducing inflammation. According to a study in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, compression gear can significantly speed up recovery time.

Understanding Thumb Pain: Root Causes & Conditions

Thumb pain can be triggered by a wide range of injuries and conditions, from the mild to the severe. It’s important to pinpoint the underlying cause to understand how wearing a thumb brace can alleviate the symptoms and contribute to the healing process.

1. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition that affects the hand and wrist. It is caused by pressure on the median nerve, which runs the length of the arm and passes through the carpal tunnel in the wrist to the hand. The condition is often triggered by repetitive tasks like typing or writing and is more common in women than men due to the relatively smaller size of the carpal tunnel in female hands.

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include tingling, numbness, and pain in the thumb and fingers, except the little finger. In severe cases, it can lead to loss of hand function.

In the UK, it’s estimated that around 1 in 5 people experience Carpal Tunnel Syndrome at some point in their lives. A study conducted by the University of Southampton showed that wearing a thumb brace can help alleviate the symptoms by keeping the wrist in a neutral position and reducing pressure on the nerve.

2. Thumb Fractures

Thumb fractures are a common type of hand injury and can significantly affect hand function. Fractures can result from a direct blow, a fall, or twisting the thumb awkwardly. People who are involved in contact sports or manual labour are more at risk.

Common signs of a thumb fracture include swelling, tenderness, and an inability to move the thumb. If left untreated, it can lead to chronic pain, reduced range of motion, and arthritis.

In a recent study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, researchers found that using a thumb brace after a thumb fracture can dramatically improve recovery times and minimize complications.

According to a study published in the Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), wearing a thumb brace post-injury can provide the necessary support and immobilization, allowing the bone to heal correctly and reducing the risk of long-term complications.

3. De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis

De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis is a condition that affects the tendons on the thumb side of your wrist. It is particularly common among middle-aged women, but anyone can develop it. The most common symptoms include pain and swelling near the base of the thumb, difficulty moving the thumb and wrist when you’re doing something that involves grasping or pinching, and a “sticking” or “stop-and-go” sensation in your thumb when trying to move it.

The exact cause is unknown, but it could be linked to overuse of the thumb tendons, particularly in activities that involve repetitive hand or wrist movements. People who perform tasks that require repetitive hand movements are at a higher risk of developing the condition.

Ignoring the condition could lead to chronic pain and limited hand function. A study conducted by the National Health Service reported that the use of thumb braces was successful in reducing pain and improving function in patients with De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis. A thumb brace provides support and limits the movement of the thumb, giving it a chance to heal and reducing the risk of further injury.

4. Trigger Thumb

Trigger thumb is a condition in which your thumb gets stuck in a bent position, as if you were about to fire a gun. It’s a fairly common condition that affects about 200,000 people per year in the UK. Symptoms include thumb stiffness, a popping or clicking sensation when moving the thumb, and a bump at the base of the thumb.

Trigger thumb is caused by inflammation of the tendons in the thumb, leading to a narrowing of the space through which the tendon can move. It’s more common in women and in people over the age of 40.

If left untreated, trigger thumb can lead to permanent stiffness in the thumb. A study in the British Journal of General Practice found that thumb braces helped in the non-surgical treatment of trigger thumb, by restricting the movement of the thumb and allowing the inflamed tendon to heal.

5. Thumb Arthritis

Thumb arthritis, or basal joint arthritis, is a common type of osteoarthritis that affects the joint at the base of the thumb. Symptoms include pain and swelling in the thumb, difficulty gripping objects, and decreased range of motion.

Thumb arthritis is often caused by wear and tear on the cartilage that cushions the bones in the thumb joint. People over the age of 40, particularly women, are more likely to develop thumb arthritis.

If left untreated, thumb arthritis can make it difficult to perform daily tasks and cause severe pain. A study published in the Journal of Hand Surgery found that thumb braces effectively reduced pain and improved function in people with thumb arthritis. A thumb brace works by limiting the movement of the thumb, reducing the strain on the joints and preventing further wear and tear.

6. Thumb Sprains

A thumb sprain is a quite common injury, which happens when the ligaments that support the thumb stretch beyond their limits or tear. This can occur during sports activities that involve throwing, or during a fall when one tries to break the fall using their hands.

Symptoms of a thumb sprain can include pain, swelling, bruising, and a decreased ability to grip things. The base of your thumb, near your wrist, is where you would typically feel the pain and it can extend further up your thumb.

People who engage in sports activities, particularly those that involve the hands, such as basketball players or skiers, are more at risk.

Ignoring this injury can lead to chronic instability, prolonged pain, and even arthritis.

A study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine highlighted the significance of the timely use of a thumb brace in patients with thumb sprains. The study concluded that the use of a thumb brace could significantly reduce pain and improve functionality.

A thumb brace works by restricting the movement of the sprained thumb, thus allowing the ligaments to heal. It also provides support to the thumb, reducing the risk of further injury.

7. Skier’s Thumb

Skier’s Thumb, also known as Gamekeeper’s thumb, is a specific kind of thumb sprain. The injury occurs when the thumb is pulled backward while the hand is moving forward, such as when a skier falls while holding a ski pole.

This injury is quite common among skiers – in fact, it accounts for around 10% of all skiing injuries.

Symptoms include pain at the base of the thumb, swelling and inability to hold objects between the thumb and index finger.

People who frequently engage in sports which involve gripping equipment, like skiing or mountain biking, are more susceptible to Skier’s Thumb.

Failure to treat Skier’s Thumb timely can result in chronic instability and weakness of the thumb, making it difficult to perform tasks that require a strong grip.

A thumb brace offers support and restricts movement, promoting healing. It can also prevent overstretching of the thumb’s tendons and ligaments, reducing the risk of future injury. A 2018 study in the Journal of Hand and Upper Limb Surgery found that the use of a thumb brace could effectively treat Skier’s Thumb, reducing the need for surgery.

Each of these conditions and injuries benefit from the use of a thumb brace. Not only does it provide the necessary support and stability, but it also helps reduce pain and inflammation, promoting faster healing.
