Gymnastics, tumbling, and cheerleading can be hard on your body. It is not uncommon for those who participate in these sports regularly to struggle with injuries. One of the most common problems gymnasts and cheerleaders face is an injury of the hand and wrist. Pain in your wrists can often make it difficult to take part in the sports you love.
Cheerleading injuries can happen to anyone who takes part in the sport, but how common are they? Based on recent studies an average of 11-50 cheerleaders sustain injuries per month. Over a year, this can add up to as many as 600 injuries as a direct result of cheerleading.
This cheer wrist brace from BraceAbility is the best solution for athletes in need of support. By holding your wrist (This only comes with one brace, not a pair) in the correct position this brace allows you to recover from a variety of injuries and conditions including:
Along with allowing you to recover, this brace guards you against further injury so you can return to sports and activities with confidence!
This brace was designed specifically for cheerleading, including competitive team stunting and basing (even at the Olympic level). It helps limit wrist motion and protect wrists during workouts or other activities. Wrist sprains and strains from stunting and tumbling occur as the hand is hyperextended (bent backward). The way this brace supports the wrist prevents you from making any incorrect movements during cheerleading and gymnastic maneuvers. Wrist guards also work to redistribute pressure on the wrist by providing padding and allowing you to tumble effectively with less stress on your wrists.
Despite being designed specifically for cheerleading and gymnastics these wristbands can also take the pain off of your wrist during other sports including CrossFit, weightlifting at the gym, dance, pilates, and yoga. It can even help with daily activities such as typing on a keyboard (which can lead to carpal tunnel), using a computer mouse, lifting objects around the house, and more!
This brace can be worn on the right or left hand. It fits a wide range of children to adults. One size fits most, but make sure to measure and check our sizing chart before ordering! For younger children, check out our child-sized wrist splint.
Features a hard plastic splint that helps keep your wrist in proper anatomical positioning, preventing re-injury and speeding up the recovery process. This plastic stay can be worn on either the top or bottom of your wrist and removed throughout your treatment process if lighter support is desired.
Similar to Tiger Paw Wrist Supports, our wrist guard for gymnastics and tumbling leaves the fingers and hands-free, allowing for a full range of motion. It can even be worn with gloves!
2 adjustable elastic wrist straps provide customizable, dual compression. These braces are meant to fit snug to stabilize your wrist properly and can be quickly adjusted throughout the day.
The low-profile design of this brace won’t get in the way while tumbling or stunting. Unlike neoprene braces, this wrist support is made from breathable elastic to avoid sweating – perfect for tough cheer or gymnastics workouts.
This brace is crafted from high-quality, medical-grade materials to ensure it holds strong even during high-intensity movement. The hook and loop fasteners are much stronger than cheap retail-grade fasteners you would find at stores like Walmart, Walgreens, or local drugstores.
Simply remove the plastic stay, close the fasteners, and throw in the washing machine!
