HOW CAN I RELIEVE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT CAUSED BY SKIER'S THUMB?
Skier’s thumb (also known as Gamekeeper’s thumb) occurs as a result of damage or trauma to the ulnar collateral ligament of the thumb. This condition most commonly occurs from skiing (hence its name) and can account for up to 10% of skiing injuries. Those with skier’s thumb find may find it difficult to grasp and hold onto objects.
Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports or braces with medical-grade compression target the symptoms of skier’s thumb to provide pain relief and stability. With velcro fastenings, the support can be conveniently taken on and off at any time. The RhizoLoc also helps you to continue with everyday activities such as gripping or picking up objects without experiencing major strains or limitations.
HOW TO TREAT PAIN CAUSED BY SKIER’S THUMB
- Rest and brace supports. In the early phases of rehab, it is beneficial for the thumb to be placed in a lightweight brace to facilitate healing.
- Physical therapy. Once it is cleared by a doctor or physiotherapist, exercises may be prescribed to assist with the strengthening of the internal structures.
- Anti-inflammatory medicines. Medications may be prescribed by your doctor to ease pain and inflammation.
- Severe or persistent pain should be investigated by your doctor.
