How Are Hands Affected By Arthritis?
Orthopedic specialists tell us any joint in your fingers, thumbs, knuckles and wrists can be affected by arthritis pain. Different forms of arthritis can affect your hands, joints and feet and cause joint pain, swelling and stiffness. These include osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Arthritis often weakens hand grip so it becomes harder to carry out fine movements, for example, turning on a tap or tying up your shoelaces.
What Is The Best Arthritis Treatment For My Sore Hands?
Far infrared therapy clothes are recommended to soothe painful, inflamed joints as well as maintain flexibility and muscle strength. Far infrared therapy gloves offer you excellent joint protection and pain relief.
Easy ways to protect the joints in your hands include:
~ Remember pain is your body warning you that your joints are being overworked. Take regular rests during the activity.
~ Use your larger, stronger joints such as arm or shoulders rather than your hands to carry bags.
~ Use two hands instead of one hand to complete tasks.
~ Wear thermal gloves for protection against cold to maintain flexibility of your finger joints for reduced pain.
It also can help you to become more aware of how you use your sore arthritic joints. Try to use different joints to carry out tasks. Arthritis pain does not mean you should stop using your hands or restricting your life style. It just means that you should use arthritis joints differently to reduce the amount of stress on your joints.
Are Therapy Gloves Helpful?
Yes, therapy gloves and therapy socks are designed to aid in the treatment of arthritis and other degenerative joint diseases. Therapy gloves can be used to support the joint at the base of your thumb and for hands badly affected by rheumatoid arthritis.
Splints are usually worn only when the joint is painful or to protect the joint during certain activities. Unlike rigid wrist splints, medical gloves do not restrict your movement thus allow you to use your hands to maintain your muscle strength and joint mobility.
Should I Exercise My Hands?

In fact regular exercise is important to reduce stiffness and keep your joints and muscles healthy. Gently flex the arthritic joints in your fingers, thumbs, knuckles and wrists each day.
