Wrist braces are used to help stabilize and support the wrist. The brace can be worn for a short time or used long-term. Wearing a brace is useful for people who have carpal tunnel syndrome, weak wrists, arthritis, a deformed wrist or any other condition that causes the wrist to be unstable. Wearing an elastic support band around the upper arm and hand stabilizes the wrist and reduces pain. A brace also helps reduce swelling in the wrist when you get an injury. One common type of brace is an elastic bandage called an elastic support strap or splint. Elastomeric support bands are usually made from Polypropylene or neoprene (a synthetic rubber). These bands should fit snugly around your upper arm. Elastic support straps are commonly worn at night to keep your arm stable while you sleep. Other types of braces use Velcro closures instead of elastic straps to hold the brace in place on your arm without having to constantly adjust it every few minutes like elastic straps do. These braces are often worn during sports activities because they can be quickly removed and reattached multiple times without overstretching your muscles too much each time it’s taken off and put back on again.
