    Compression gloves can help a bit depending on where your arthritis is, my thumbs are worse affected so I wear these:

    they can be obtained through the OT at hospital or can be purchased on-line for around £40 a pair.

    Check out your local Health Authority's website to see if you can self-refer, if not you will need to go through your GP or Physio.

    I use compression gloves for rheumatoid arthritis and they are a god send! I couldn't be without them now and you can normally get a pair for about £10
