Wrist BraceThe wrist brace is useful in a variety of situations, from injury prevention to trauma healing to inflammation reduction. Wrist braces are easily applied by practitioners and patients alike, and can be removed whenever necessary. Ideal for athletes, the wrist brace provides comfortable pressure to the joint to reduce the risk of sprains and strains during activity. However, if a sprain or strain does occur, the brace can also be used to provide stability to the area during healing. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis may find relief from inflammatory symptoms with the added support of the brace while retaining range of motion in the fingers and thumb.
