The most common way you can hurt your wrist is by falling on it. If you fall with your hand outstretched you may sprain or strain the muscles or ligaments in your wrist. If you fall hard enough you may break or crack one of the bones in your wrist.

Common wrist conditions include;

Tendonitus
Tendonitis is the inflammation or swelling of a tendon. This causes pain in the affected area. Tendonitis can occur by overusing the tendon and repeated motions or, injuring the tendon whilst playing a sport.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel syndrome occurs when you use repetitive wrist motions as well. This can lead to tingling, numbness and muscle weakness in the wrist.

What can you do if you have a wrist injury or one of these conditions?
You may want to consider using a wrist brace. Wrist braces can be used for a number of wrist injuries and conditions.

These braces help you keep your wrist stable. Keeping your wrist stable helps to relieve the pain and also helps with the healing process. Since wrist braces help keep the wrist stable, the damaged tendons, ligaments, muscles or bones in your wrist can begin to heal.

Using a brace will help you keep from further hurting your wrist as well. Also, if you have recently had a cast removed you might want to use a brace to keep the wrist stable while it heals. Wrist braces can also help improve the function of the joints in your wrist.

Will a wrist brace be uncomfortable to wear?
Not at all. Most wrist braces are made with materials or liners that are easy to use and comfortable to wear. Wrist braces are contoured to fit the wrist and hand.

Some braces for the wrist are made of breathable canvas, some are made of lightweight fabric, and others are made of high quality elastic.

Different types of braces offer different levels of support. The brace you choose will be based on your wrist injury and the level of support your wrist needs.
