TREAT AND PREVENT INJURY WITH A THUMB, HAND OR WRIST BRACE

Our thumbs are extremely important during everyday activities and tasks. They help us hold utensils, use appliances and operate machinery. However, because they are used so often, they are also susceptible to injury. Our thumbs are especially at risk during sports that use the hands, such as basketball, volleyball and football. When we jam our thumbs, it can severely impact the way we interact with our surroundings. Wearing a thumb brace after an injury can help with rehabilitation. A thumb support or thumb splint holds the finger in place so that it can heal appropriately and minimize any unwanted movement. A sturdy outer shell also helps protect your thumb from re-injury.

Wrist injuries are typically caused by one of two reasons. Wrist pain most commonly occurs due to a repetitive stress injury. Repetitive use of the wrist strains the tendons and nerves that support the area which causes pain to the wrist. The other more common cause of wrist pain is due to high-impact on the wrist, resulting in pushing the wrist too far back one way or the other. Once your wrist is injured, it is important to immobilize the joint with a brace or splint to prevent further injury. By immobilizing the wrist, you prevent it from moving unnaturally or out of place. Wrist supports are ideal for dealing with carpal tunnel, tendinitis, or sprains.
