Supporting an Injured Wrist

  Wrist pain can be simply defined as any pain or discomfort experienced in the wrist.  Wrist pain is a fairly common problem that can be caused from multiple issues such as stress and injury or from conditions such as arthritis or carpel tunnel syndrome.  Stress can often be caused from overuse of the wrist.  When the wrist has incurred constant, repetitive movement and increased force, the tissue can become irritated resulting in inflammation and injury.  Conditions such as tendonitis and carpel tunnel syndrome occur from repetitive overuse injury.  Tendonitis is the inflammation of the tendons in the wrist.  Carpel tunnel syndrome is caused when the nerve in the wrist becomes disrupted which causes pain, swelling, or numbness that can radiate up the arm.  Arthritis is another common condition people summer from.  Osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis are types of arthritis that can occur in the wrist that also result in pain and swelling. These injuries not only result in pain and discomfort but they ultimately lead to partial or full immobilization of the wrist, limiting daily activities.

We carry a variety of wrist braces and supports that assist with wrist pain:
