Wrist & Forearm Splints

Wrist Splint and Forearm Splints for Wrist Injuries and other Conditions

Wrist pain is a very common problem experienced by people worldwide; in fact, it cuts across different age brackets and professions.  There are various causes of wrist pain; however, some of the most common include carpal tunnel syndrome which requires a carpal tunnel brace, fractures which require a wrist fracture splint, tendonitis which requires wist brace tendonitis, and sprain which requires a sprained wrist brace.

One of most effective ways to treat wrist injuries and other disorders (aside from the usual rest, ice/heat application, anti-inflammatory medication, and—in extreme cases—cortisone injections and even wrist surgery) is using wrist splints and forearm splints. These wrist orthoses are mainly used by patients who who have suffered sprains, fractures, carpal tunnel syndrome,  tendonitis, or even by those who tend to injure their wrists and arms easily.  These wrist brace splints are proven to help prevent most wrist injuries and conditions and can also double as gentle wrist support while you perform simple activities during rehabilitation from a wrist pain.

Whatever wrist disorder or injury you are suffering from, we at BraceAbility have the perfect splint wrist braces and forearm splints for you.

An Ideal Carpal Tunnel Splint

Carpal tunnel syndrome is perhaps one of the most common wrist disorders suffered by millions of people worldwide. With carpal tunnel syndrome, patients experience pressure 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 usually results in weakness, numbness, tingling, or even muscle damage to the hand and fingers. A carpal tunnel brace can alleviate these symptoms. 

What is the main cause of carpal tunnel syndrome? The carpal tunnel, which is relatively narrow, is the area of the wrist where the median nerve enters the hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome causes swelling that pinches the medial nerve, thus resulting in pain and the aforementioned weakness, numbness, and tingling.

Who are the most at-risk for carpal tunnel syndrome? This condition is most common in those who perform repetitive movements of the wrist and hand. Using a keyboard for hours at a time is probably one of the most common causes of carpal tunnel syndrome. Other causes may include using hand tools. playing certain sports, sewing, driving, writing, and painting, among others.

A carpal tunnel splint is a splint for wrist that is designed for patients afflicted with carpal tunnel syndrome. A carpal tunnel wrist brace functions as a wrist immobilization splint that helps provide stability and support to the wrist, relieve the pain caused by carpal tunnel syndrome, and helps put the wrist in its natural position.
