RSI in Hands
What is RSI - Repetitive Strain Injury?
Some conditions are named: Carpal tunnel syndrome, Cubital tunnel syndrome, DeQuervain's syndrome, Focal dystonia, Gamekeeper's thumb, "Gamer's thumb", Intersection syndrome, Radial tunnel syndrome, Reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome (RSDS), Stenosing tenosynovitis, Tendinitis, Tenosynovitis, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Trigger finger/thumb and Ulnar nerve entrapment.
Treating & Preventing RSI in your Hands:
Getting some rest from the action or activity that is causing overuse of the muscles in your hands and wrists is always recommended. If your job is computer related, it may be difficult to get time off to get the rest you need.
In most situations, taking frequent breaks, moving around and stretching is very helpful.
We recommend wearing Prolotex™ Far Infrared Open Fingertip Therapy Gloves help promote circulation to your hands and wrist. Increased circulation will help to reduce the stresses to the muscles and tendons in your finger, hands and wrists.
Thank you, that's very helpful, as posting the gloves back to you would incur postage and packing costs. I look forward to receiving the replacement pair shortly. I am very pleased with the full finger gloves. I am a professional musician and have difficulty warming my hands sufficiently before playing.
Why Do Fir products help prevent RSI?
The threads in Prolotex™ products are blended with a safe formula of bio-ceramics that emit beneficial far infrared rays (FIR). These waves of soothing FIR energy penetrate deep into the tissues of your body and basically increase the molecular activity of the cells.
The stimulation of the tiny capillaries and veins in your body dilate the cells and allow fresh oxygenated blood containing vital nutrients to reach the extremities of toes & fingers.
