Push Braces Ortho Thumb Brace CMC to treat thumb osteoarthritis pain - Latex free £49.68
This brace is now well accepted by many medical professionals as the best brace on the market for people who suffer from osteoarthritis of the CMC joint of their thumb. Latex Free.
Following improvements made to the Push Thumb Brace CMC in late 2015, please note the following two important aspects of using the Push CMC thumb brace. Both of these aspects are important when supplying and fitting the product to ensure the best possible function of the Push CMC.
1. The squeezing of the aluminium reinforcement of the Push CMC, to fit it around the thumb. The aluminium support feature that is built into the plastic part of the Push CMC can be bent to the shape of the thenar. Before applying the brace, hold the brace with both hands and bend the support part of the brace so it is slightly more open. You can then fit the brace, fix the straps and ask the wearer to form an "O" shape with their thumb and index finger. Be sure the thumb muscles are relaxed. After doing this apply pressure to shape the aluminium support part around the thenar. The brace will now be in the best position to allow optimum function by the user.
2. Bending the Velcro straps to fit the shape of the back of the hand. For proper functioning of the Velcro closure it is important that it is firmly strapped together for the entire length of the “hook” tab. In case the hand has a rounder shape, at the location of the Velcro closure, it is possible to shape the “hook” tab for better alignment. By bending the Velcro “hook” tabs firmly, they can be shaped to a good curved fit around the back of the hand. After closing, be sure to firmly press across the straps for a good hold.
In European countries, incidence rates vary between 16% and 25%. This means that one in every 4 to 5 people suffers from CMC arthritis.

I have been suffering from osteoarthritis in my hands for years. My left thumb was repaired about 15 years ago but until recently, my right thumb was feeling ok. About two months ago, my right thumb really started bothering me so I began wearing the brace prescribed by my doctor all the tume. Since it is fabric with an elastic keeper, it never really felt like it was supporting the thumb joint very well and thought I was going to have to have this one surgically repaired, too. However, I went on-line and found this brace and am thrilled with my choice. I am so happy I decided to give it a try because I am completely without pain in my right thumb. Since it supports the joint so well and I can wear it all the time, I am able to work, exercise, play - all without fear of injuring the joint and creating more pain. At this rate, I may be able to hold off on the surgery for quite some time. It is absolutely the best.

How do I work out which size to buy? Is UK glove size any help?
An abdominal strain occurs when the rectus abdominus is torn or ruptured. The abdominal muscles allow movement, assist with breathing, and provide support to the spine. They consist of the internal and external obliques, rectus abdominus, and the transversus abdominus. The transversus abdominus muscle is triangular and flat, and the rectus abdominus is long and flat. If the abdominal muscles become weak or tight, they can cause poor posture and back pain.
There are three types of abdominal muscle strain; grade 1, grade 2 and grade 3.
A grade 1 strain occurs when a few muscle fibres are torn;
a grade 2 strain occurs when the tears to the muscle fibres are more extensive;
and a grade 3 strain occurs when there is a complete rupture of the muscle
Any sport which involves a fast movement or sudden change in direction can cause abdominal muscle strain. Gymnasts, weight lifters, rowers, throwers are particularly susceptible to abdominal strain.
