Wrist Braces & Hand Splints
Best Wrist Braces for Hand and Wrist Injuries and Other Disorders
You might not know it, but wrist pain is a fairly common occurrence for people across different age brackets and professions. Typically, there are various causes of this problem, but some of the most common include the following: tendonitis, sprain, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, ganglion cyst, and fractures, among many others.
Aside from the usual rest, ice/heat application, anti-inflammatory medication, and—in extreme cases—cortisone injections and even wrist surgery, one of the best ways to treat wrist conditions and injury is by wearing hand and wrist braces. Wrist support braces can mainly help patients who have suffered recent sprain injury or even those who tend to injure their wrists easily. These hand and wrist supports can not only help prevent some wrist injuries and disorders but can also help act as a gentle support while doing wrist movements and can help you perform simple activities while rehabilitating from a wrist pain.
The Ideal Carpal Tunnel Brace
Carpal tunnel syndrome is probably one of the most common wrist disorders. It is a condition wherein pressure is felt on the median nerve, the nerve found in the wrist that is responsible for supplying movement and feeling to the other parts of the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome can often lead to weakness, numbness, tingling, or even muscle damage to the hand and fingers.
So what causes carpal tunnel syndrome? The carpal tunnel is the area of the wrist where the median nerve enters the hand. The carpal tunnel is relatively narrow, so any swelling can pinch the nerve, thereby causing pain and the aforementioned weakness, numbness, and tingling.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is most common in those who perform repetitive movements of the wrist and hand. Using a keyboard for hours at a time is perhaps one of the most common causes of carpal tunnel syndrome, though other causes may include playing certain sports, driving, sewing, using hand tools, painting, and writing, among others.
For prevention or treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist supports and wrist braces may be used. The Bauerfeind ManuLoc Stabilizing Wrist Support, in particular, is an ideal wrist brace for carpal tunnel syndrome. With this wrist support, you enjoy long-term stability and pressure-relief on the wrist while leaving your fingers completely free for improved coordination while writing, typing, or playing sports. This therapeutic wrist support brace also helps relieve hand and wrist pain related to carpal tunnel syndrome.
