Does it hurt to wear splints?
Most individuals find splinting to be second nature, and have no issues. For others, it may take some time to acquire the feel of wearing splints, as digits are being held in proper positioning which they are not used to. It's best to contact an Occupational Therapist or Hand Therapist before purchasing splints.
Why would I need ring splints?
If you have finger or thumb pain or suffer from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) Hypermobility, you may benefit from splinting. We are not medical professionals. Seek medical advice before splinting.
