What is "Blackberry Thumb"?
Blackberry Thumb is caused by overusing your thumbs by text messaging on mobile phone keypads.
As the use of mobile hand-held phones increases in many countries around the world, doctors are reporting more and more cases of the thumb strain.
Thumbs may start to ache during at night, but as the condition gets more severe, you may experience sharp knife-like jabs and intense pain, whenever you text message an email.

Most of the swelling and pain is from the inflamed tendon sheath. Resting your thumbs is encouraged.

FIR Gloves for Blackberry Thumbs?
The threads in Prolotex™ Gloves are impregnated with a safe formula of bio-ceramics that emit beneficial far infrared rays (FIR).
These safe waves of soothing FIR energy penetrate deep into the tissues of your thumbs, helping to restore the health of your thumb tendons and tendon sheaths by increasing the molecular activity of the cells.
The stimulation of the tiny capillaries and veins in your fingers dilate the cells and allow fresh oxygenated blood containing vital nutrients to reach the over stress areas.
Better circulation to the skin means better overall health of your thumbs.
