Thumb Saver has a patented design developed to extend the life of your hard working thumb joints. Ergonomically designed with flexible, strong support, this massage tool delivers the relief and aid your massage techniques need.
When the thumb saver is used as directed, with properly aligned wrist, forearm, and body mechanics, this device can relieve De Quervain syndrome and help relieve other repetitive strain symptoms. Many manual skill professionals have repetitive strain like De Quervain and Massage Therapy is no exception. The syndrome develops slowly as the two tendons that control movement of the thumb and their tendon sheath become inflamed. The result is pain in the outside of the wrist. This pain typically increases with gripping or rotating of the wrist.
The damage doesn’t stop there.
In order to effectively apply a technique such as Myofascial trigger Point therapy the massage therapist or physio often requires prolonged compression to tight areas of muscle. This technique can cause thumb joint compression, which over a prolonged period of time this type of repetitive strain can and usually does lead to arthritis. The thumb saver, combined with proper alignment of the thumb to wrist and forearm, will allow therapists to enjoy their massage work without painful repercussions.
Heat and ice are also indicated if there is pain after using the thumbs. Use the thumb saver in combination with thumb and hand self massage to maintain circulation and relaxation in the muscles of the thumb and hand.
No more constant wrist and hand pain with Thumb Saver to the rescue! Buy these for the whole clinic. Great gift and easy to carry in your purse or back pack.
