Nearly half of all women, and a quarter of men will experience stiff and painful joints due to osteoarthritis of the hands by the time they reach 85 years old.

The condition is clearly more prevalent than you think. In fact, according to one study, the lifetime risk of hand osteoarthritis can be as much as 40%–and it can potentially lead to reduced hand function and movement restrictions, severely affecting quality of life.

Being a chronic condition, osteoarthritis unfortunately has no cure. But the good news is that medical treatments coupled with lifestyle changes as well as non-invasive tools and aids can help manage symptoms. One such option is the use of finger splints.

A finger splint works by repositioning the finger/s into more relaxed positions so that it puts less stress on the joints. While in a splint, your fingers range of motion is restricted to help minimize pain and swelling, as well as protect the finger from further damage. And when worn consistently, splints can help reduce the pain caused by hand osteoarthritis significantly; a claim supported by a previous study that reports pain symptoms being cut in half after research subjects wore a splint nightly for a full year.

  1. I was excited to find full finger gloves. Measured by directions and received gloves too long & too big around to grip fingers. They fit my palm only. $5.00 coupon was too late for EVEN a $5.00 cashback. Waste of money & shipping fees. Too bad it didn’t help me.
