I had surgery for deQuervain’s. I feel a lot better but still would like something to wrap on my thumb. Will this splint help?
The soft ThumSpica splint is a good choice if you need light support that offers protection without limiting motion. You can adjust the amount of tension or support the splint applies by how tightly you wrap it. This is a good choice if you just need something to remind you not to overdo things while you are healing from surgery.
I have a lot of pain in my thumb and arm whenever I move my thumb. Will the ThumSpica stop this?
The 3pp ThumSpica provides light support and compression but does not limit motion. If you are having severe symptoms, we suggest looking at more supportive splints like the 3pp Ultra Spica or the Mueller Thumb Stabilizer. If you have not already done so, it would be helpful to see your doctor or a hand specialist to help determine the best treatment for you.
I am pregnant and having pain that my doctor said is deQuervain’s. Should I try this splint or something stronger?
The answer to that really does depend on your symptoms. If your symptoms are mild and only happen occasionally, the 3pp ThumSpica is a good light support to start with. If however, your symptoms are more constant and you are having problems using your hand, a more supportive splint such as the 3pp Ultra Spica or the Mueller Thumb Stabilizer could be helpful. You may consider wearing a firm support now and switching to the lighter 3pp ThumSpica after you have your baby.
