Question Will ace wraps help?

Hey, so I have raynauds and I'm a music major playing lots of flute. It's REALLY hard to get warmed up with white fingers, and I heard that applying pressure to the wrists, like those heatband things, will promote circulation. So . . . then will ace wraps help circulation?

Re: Will ace wraps help?

Hi I would not use Ace bandages as these may actually impede circulation a bit. I would however in winter make sure hands, feet and head are well covered in addition to a down coat to the floor. I like a heavy sport boot for snow.

A daily walk may help circulation. I would try to avoid cold beverages/foods and extremely hot beverages/foods also.

I might try to avoid too much repetitive motion for awhile since if the circulation is not good the wear from a lot of motion cannot repair cells as fast or well. I would at least make sure hands are well warmed before beginning. Mental stress can also worsen things so if music mistakes are made take it with a grain of salt everyone makes them. Too much typing may also aggravate it.
