Choosing a Wrist Support Brace

When it comes to choosing a wrist support brace, it can be overwhelming. There are many options in price, material, design, and features. The important thing is to determine what kind of wrist support is best for your arthritis. If you want to know more about the different choices of wrist braces available, read on:

Flexible
When shopping for a wrist brace, make sure it's made from flexible, breathable material. Breathable means it can hold moisture, and keep your skin dry. A material like neoprene will work great but is not recommended for tendonitis or carpal tunnel syndrome. Breathable material is also great for wrist braces for therapeutic use, because it's comfortable and soft to wear.

Soft
Wrist braces made of soft material help to relieve pain and promote healing. A material like Spirodela will do just that. Spirodela is breathable and comfortable. It's easy to clean and won't irritate your arthritis. It's perfect for repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or tendinitis. Wrist support brace users also find it great for preventing recurrent pain in their wrists.

Velcro(R) straps
People often choose wrist support brace with Velcro straps. The problem is that while this may be comfortable for the wrist, the Velcro straps can't offer the best fit. You won't get the kind of support you need and there's always a chance they'll come off. These can slip over time.

Prolonged inflammation
This is a common complaint from people with arthritis. While wrist braces may provide pain relief, they don't reduce inflammation. In fact, prolonged inflammation can even lead to more pain. If you have inflammation, you may want to look into a different type of brace.

Breathable
Wrist support braces that are breathable are an excellent choice for pain relief. Your arthritis pain can be made comfortable, and if you use a comfortable bracelet, you can wear it longer and feel better. Breathable materials include materials like CoolMax, which is very breathable. CoolMax is not actually a fiber, but it does have some wicking qualities that pull moisture from the air, which helps keep your body cool and comfortable.

Comfortable
Wrist splints are worn to provide pain relief. The wrist support splints have two straps - one to hold the bracelet up and the other to strap the bracelet down. Both straps are designed to help you wear your brace comfortably, and the splints have ergonomic cutouts to help you customize the fit to your wrist and hand. There are also many different kinds of ergonomic cutouts that can be customized to fit your hand and wrist comfortably. These cutouts will provide the most comfort when wearing the brace.

Repetitive
People who have arthritis are prone to repetitive movements. The repetitive nature of the arthritis causes pressure on the joints. One example is a tunnel brace. A tunnel brace provides additional support for the wrist and can help arthritis sufferers reduce their level of pain.

Reduces pain
Arthritis pain often times leads to swelling, which in turn creates pain. A wrist brace that supports the wrist can reduce swelling and pain. This type of support can even help alleviate pain of the arthritis itself. The wrist brace keeps the bones in your joints aligned, which reduces the chance of injury or bone spurring, which can lead to further pain.

Breathability
A wrist brace is designed with breathable fabric. Wearing a wrist support allows your skin to breathe, which provides better comfort and helps reduce moisture. In addition to breathability, it also allows air to flow through the fabric, which increases airflow around your body and reduces feeling sweaty. The better the ventilation around your skin, the more comfortable you feel and the less you sweat.

Post-cast wrists
If you have post-cast wrist pain, then you know how much pain it can cause. When you wear a wrist support, you are creating a support structure for your wrists and can wear them anywhere. You can take them on vacation, go swimming, dance, and even go to the gym. You can get the relief you need without having to worry about damaging your wrists by wearing braces.

Use a Compression Band
Wearing a wrist brace is good for reducing pain, swelling and inflammation, but they can also be used to reduce inflammation. A compression band or wrist wrap is great for this because when the band is applied to your wrist, it creates pressure similar to that which is caused by compression therapy. The inflamation causes the cells of the hand and forearm to compress, resulting in pain and stiffness. The compression then helps to relive the pain. Wearing a wrist brace like a compression band is a great way to reduce pain and inflammation without having to undergo surgery or wear a supportive brace.
