The Use of Compression Gloves for Hand Swelling

Compression gloves are often recommended for a swollen hand or finger.  The blend of nylon and lycra provides a comfortable, gentle squeeze that helps reduce swelling.  These gloves are thin and unlined so that they move with the hand and do not get in the way of hand use.  You can often purchase the gloves without tips (3/4 finger length) so that you have sensation and better purchase at the ends of the fingers for easier hand  use.  The seams of these gloves are deliberately placed on the outside of the glove to provide a smooth and even fit, to increase comfort, and to prevent pressure areas and friction.  The gloves also provide a low-level warmth that can be comforting to painful and stiff finger joints.

  1. Another benefit to having the fingers exposed is that it makes it a little easier and quicker to ensure circulation is not compromised (e.g. looking for discoloration in the fingertips). This especially makes it easy in the hospital setting when staff is always on the go and may not always take the glove off as often as they should to ensure tolerance.

  2. Can A Strong Core Reduce… Even Eliminate Your Joint Pain?
    You may have heard that a strong core is important for physical fitness.
    Unfortunately, what you’ve heard probably starts and stops with your abs, so you get a “sexy,” ripped” six-pack. That practically guarantees joint pain.
    Why?
    If your core is weak, your joints compensate by bearing weight that your muscles can’t. Then target one muscle in particular and all the other weak muscles compensate, stressing your joints even more.
    Sooner, rather than later, that stress leads to joint pain in a vicious, downward spiral.
    What you probably haven’t heard is how a strong core can protect your joints, even end joint pain at the source.
    Because your core is a system of 29 pairs of muscles.
    But until now, this knowledge has been the exclusive professional secret of the very best sports doctors and physical therapists working for professional sports teams.
    Most of us just don’t have access to doctors and physical therapists who know how to teach you to engage, activate and above all, balance your core muscles.
    Quickly, without expensive equipment, complicated protocols, or spending several hours a day in physical therapy.
    Until now, thanks to former NBA pro and chronic joint pain relief expert Jonathan Bender. Who has a gift for making the complicated. Simple and easy.

    It’s already improving my life. I think it can do the same for you.
