Different types of wrist braces
Wrist injuries and conditions can cause tremendous discomfort and hamper your daily activities. Fortunately, there are different types of wrist braces that relieve pain, provide stability and speed up recovery. However, choosing the right wrist brace is essential for effective support. In this blog, we will highlight different types of wrist braces.
Neoprene wrist brace
These braces are ideal for mild to moderate wrist sprains and tendinitis. They offer compression and warmth, which can help with pain relief and promote healing. Neoprene braces are often made of flexible, synthetic rubber that surrounds the wrist. They are easy to put on and can be worn under your clothes.
Adjustable wrist brace with splint
- These braces are suitable for moderate to severe wrist injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or, for example, after surgery. They offer maximum stability and support.
- Adjustable braces have splints (usually made of aluminium or plastic) on the back of the wrist to restrict movement. They are fitted with Velcro fasteners for proper adjustment.
Thumb brace with wrist support
These braces are designed for wrist injuries affecting the thumb, such as a skier's thumb or De Quervain's syndrome. They include a thumb support that restricts thumb movement and provides wrist support.
Sports wrist brace
These braces are specially designed for athletes. They provide support for sports involving repetitive wrist movements, such as tennis, golf and weightlifting. They are lightweight, breathable and offer freedom of movement.
