The wrist is one of the most sensitive and at the same time most complicated joints of the body. It is subject to strong demands even when the activities are comparatively simple. For example, PC work can certainly lead to irritation and inflammation. The most common cause is excessive bending of the joint, even in the resting position. Similar to overuse of the elbow, overuse of the wrist often leads to significant limitations, e.g., loss of gripping ability or difficulty carrying and lifting weights. In principle, a doctor should always be consulted in the event of persistent pain and other symptoms in order to avoid consequential damage. In many cases, he or she will recommend wearing a wrist brace as a conservative healing method.
Bandages can stabilize and relieve the heavily stressed wrist. This applies to signs of overuse (e.g. tendonitis), chronic diseases (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome) and injuries. It may also be appropriate to support the joint after surgery. Strength athletes are also recommended to support the sensitive wrist with a bandage during sports. In all these cases, it is important that the support fits well so that mobility and blood flow are not restricted. We therefore recommend that you take advantage of a consultation and fitting at our medical supply store Ergonomic Care. With a large selection of high-quality supports, together we are sure to find the best option for a wrist support, adapted to any previous illness or activity.
