Why wear this thumb strap?
Wearing this thumb support may be recommended if you have suffered major ligament damage or you are unsure how your thumb will hold up when you get back into sport (basketball, football, handball, tennis, running, trail running, gymnastics, judo) after a sprain. It can also be useful for people with osteoarthritis. The strap makes it easy to put on, while its foam padding and shaped stiffener keep you comfortable.
What is a sprain?
A sprained thumb is when the ligaments become stretched or torn. It tends to happen when people lose their balance on slippery ground and land on their hands, or when they misjudge a catch when playing handball, basketball, volleyball or any other ball sport.
