Advice & Tips: Oval 8 finger splints prevent your finger joints from hyper extending. I is unable to use a pen to write more than a few sentences because my finger joints would hyper extend and to compensate I had to grip very hard. I wear these on various fingers and various joints depending on the task and they provide A LOT of relief!
Cost: < $25 monthly

    Slight (for fingers curling)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (pain)
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: not working well for me to be blunt. Damned if I do, damned if I don't. I honestly couldn't say whether the pain and discomfort is improved or worsened by the confounded things. On the first 3 fingers of each hand, most dramatic and evident on the forefinger of my left hand, the DIP is in hyperextension, whilst the PIP is in flexion.
