Do You Suffer From Osteoarthritis? Consider Using Arthritis Gloves To Relieve The Pain And Swelling
These Swollen Joints Are Commonly Seen In The Hands Of OsteoArthritis Sufferers
My Mother Suffered From Osteoarthritis In Her Hands
My Mother suffered from Osteoarthritis in her hands. She lost the ability to play the piano or do the hand crafts she enjoyed. By the time she was 54 years old her fingers were gnarled and twisted. I wish we had known back then about these arthritis gloves.
I have a dear friend who is going through the same pain and discomfort from Arthritis in her hands. She recently discovered arthritis gloves, and she is thrilled to find they really do give her relief. She continues to take the prescribed meds, and her joints are still swollen, but the actual pain is relieved. She is grateful for a good night’s sleep by wearing the gloves that emit heat after applying the special Balm on her hands.
Many people suffer from Osteoarthritis and is the most common cause of disability in the USA. Frequent visits to the doctor are common in individuals who have arthritis as they seek relief from the pain. Arthritis makes it very difficult for individuals to be physically active and many become home bound because of the pain. Because of their inactivity, people can become obese, have high cholesterol and be prone to heart disease. They also may become depressed because of this painful condition.
The Two Types Of Arthritis Gloves
There is now an innovative product called Arthritis Gloves. These gloves were designed to give the person suffering from Osteoarthritis relief from pain by warming the affected joints.
Arthritis gloves using infra-red rays: One type of gloves uses infrared light rays. These are made from bio-ceramicfibers that allow them to emit infrared rays. This is done by using a combination of synthetic and natural elements that attract the infrared rays and make them focus onto the joints of the hand and fingers. This helps to relax the joints and the patient feels less pain and soreness because the stiffness is decreased.
Arthritis gloves using heat: The Patient can applies a healing balm or salve to the affected joints in the hands. The arthritis gloves will keep that balm warm.
Arthritis gloves are reasonably priced and very easy to use.

Factors To Look For When Shopping For Arthritis Gloves
There are several factors to look for when shopping for arthritis gloves.
Fabric: If the gloves are not made of a breathable fabric, they may make the hands hot. While some warmth does help with the pain, gloves that are not made of a breathable fabric can get sweaty and uncomfortable. Some gloves are made from a blend of premium-quality cotton and bio-ceramic fiber which serves to avoid skin irritation from prolonged use or overheating.
Fit: Good arthritis gloves are those that fit appropriately. It is vital that they fit snugly to provide the compression a person requires for pain relief. Mild compression reduces the stiffness and swelling in the hands, and warms them by increasing blood circulation. Well-fitting gloves encourages the small capillaries and veins in the hands and fingers and dilates them. Arthritis gloves come in many different sizes and shouldn’t be a problem finding a well-fitting pair.
Function: Some arthritis gloves utilize full use of the fingers and thumbs by keeping the fingers and thumbs free. Nevertheless, they do not offer the benefits of compression gloves. A finger-less glove can be used for more use of the fingers. These gloves offer the patient more easy grip and to hold things in daily activities. Keep in mind: Full-finger gloves are best, if the patient needs to wear arthritis gloves at nighttime. A looser general fit prevents skin irritations and provides comfort during the night.
Other Benefits Of Using Arthritis Gloves
Osteoarthritis can be difficult to live with. For most people, the condition becomes worse and difficult to treat. It is unhealthy to keep taking over-the-counter medications, and prescription drugs are not feasible options for everyone.
Emotionally, living with arthritis can be tough. Slowly and steadily, you may notice that you have more trouble with your occupation and other daily activities. You may not be able to control flare-ups that limit your range of motion by causing stiffness and pain.
It is easy to see why the Arthritis Gloves would be a benefit to a person that suffers from this crippling disease. They might make the difference between a patient who stays home in pain, or a patient who gets enough relief from pain to enjoy their daily and active life.
These gloves will capture your body's heat to bring natural relief from arthritic pain.

Some Forms Of Osteoarthritis Can Be Hereditary
If these Arthritis Gloves had been available when my Mother was alive, I’m sure she would have benefited from them to get relief from her pain.
My friend purchased two pairs of these Arthritis Gloves. She likes the fingerless ones to wear during the day when she works around the house or in her garden, but she gets better nighttime relief from pain by wearing the full-fingered gloves.
Some forms of Arthritis can be hereditary. I am very happy I have not inherited this disease from my Mother. I have always admonished my children against “cracking” their knuckles. The old country folks said this would cause Arthritis when they were older. Of course, they never listened to me. They did it anyway! So far none of them have any form of Arthritis.
