Tools To Help Manage Your Pain (Besides A Thumb Splint For Arthritis):
Arthritis responds well to the use of heat - it stimulates circulation, and decreases joint stiffness to fingers. Using arthritis gloves in addition to an arthritis thumb splint can prove beneficial in managing pain and stiffness. The use of NSAIDs, as recommended by your physician, have been proven effective for reducing pain and inflammation as well. Proper nutrition can also play a role in reducing pain as research continues to show a positive link between eating specific types of foods high in naturally occurring anti-inflammatory properties and the reduction of everyday pain from osteoarthritis.
