All you Need to Learn About Using a Wrist Brace

Wrist support braces are used by people recovering from a wrist injury and need support to stabilize their wrist, therefore, avoiding further injury and accelerating the healing process. The use of orthopedic wrist supports is also popular among people who participate in powerlifting, weightlifting, and other competitive sports that subject the wrist to heavy strain. If your physiotherapist recommends using a wrist support brace, ensure you pick the right one. To help you make this decision the blog discusses the types of braces, and the injuries they can heal. Make sure to scan this information before opting for a wrist brace.

Type of injuries

The use of ortho active wrist braces is advisable for patients suffering from injuries that fall into either of the below two categories.

Acute Injuries

Wrestlers, rugby players, and other athletes competing in contact sports run high risks of sustaining acute injuries. These injuries result from collision with other players and can hamper wrist movement, and often result in tissue damage. The use of wrist brace for people suffering from these injuries can provide warmth to their bones and stabilize their wrist, therefore, accelerating the recovery process.

Overuse Injuries

People who participate in sports such as golf and tennis that require overuse of certain muscles and repeated and excessive stretching can sustain overuse injuries. The use of wrist support braces can alleviate pain in such cases and provide long-term relief to the wearer.  

Types of Wrist Braces

While shopping for a wrist brace make sure you know your options. The market offers different choices some of which are as follows.

Standard Wrist Braces

Standard wrist braces are beneficial for users suffering from ligament injuries. These braces cover the wrist and restrict movement. Some products come with adjustable straps that allow wearers to decide the release they need while playing sports or performing other activities that require free wrist movement.

Wrist Wraps

Wrist wraps are helpful in treating minor injuries. Wraps allow free wrist movement and apply slight compression on the muscles of the wrist, therefore, alleviating pain. Many models include velcro straps that allow the user to decide the tightness of the brace. Wrist straps leave fingers and thumbs uncovered and offer ease of movement while the wearer is participating in sports or outdoor activities.

Wrist Brace with Splints  

Wrist brace with splints include a metallic tube that offers increased support to the wrists. For most models a padding surrounds the tube, and the wearer will need to detach the tube while washing the brace to avoid any damage to the wrist support.

Final few Words

Best wrist splints and other wrist support braces offer maximum support to patients who have weak/injured wrists and promise to provide instant relief to wearers. Orthopedic brace companies/ orthopedic wrist brace suppliers offer a range of options (other than the above choices) to their customers. Patients can log into the website of different providers to check their inventory to find the product that best suits their needs.
