Wrist braces are devices that support your wrist and keep it in a particular position so that your injury can heal. There are many types of wrist supports available, and each is suited to help heal a specific injury. Sometimes you'll need a writs brace and arthritis gloves to give you the best support.
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a condition caused by increased in pressure on the median nerve at the wrist. Simply put, it is a pinched nerve at the wrist. The anatomy of your wrist, health problems and possibly repetitive hand motions can contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome. Wearing a Wrist Brace can limit the Range of Motion and allow the Median Nerve to heal.
