Thumb braces are effective tools to reduce pain, provide support, improve movements, and ease the pressure on the joints. You can wear them for several conditions, including thumb fracture, sprains, tendinitis, skier’ thumb, gamekeepers’ thumb, and de Quervain’s tenosynovitis. When you feel pain, swelling around your thumb, and other symptoms, you must consult your GP to diagnose the problem.

Your GP may recommend you wear thumb braces to support your thumb, preventing further injuries. It is worth noting that ignoring pain and other symptoms may lead to a chronic disease, which may take longer to heal. There are a few things to consider before wearing thumb support. For example, accurately locating the pain helps immobilize the joints to get maximum benefits. The support level is also important. Some people may benefit from light support; however, others may need something firmer for better results.

Make sure that you use a breathable or durable material. Adjustable thumb supports can be a good option when providing a specific compression rate. Your GP will decide what compression or support level suits your thumb.

Most healthcare professionals advise you to keep your thumb supports on for a few days to several weeks, depending on the severity and location of your thumb problem. When healing starts, and you feel better, you can start your daily activities to regain strength and a normal range of motion.

When the pain subsides, and healing progresses, you may remove the thumb supports. Remember that wearing thumb support without need can cause harm to your thumbs. Wearing a thumb brace too long may cause irritations and weakness in your joints.
