Wrist braces may be worn in case of Wrist Tendonitis, Sprain, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Arthritis, Ganglion Cyst and Wrist Fractures.
Carpel tunnel syndrome is caused due to excess pressure on the median nerve that runs through the wrist. The best treatment of thid syndrome is a wrist splint that looks like a fingerless glove. It stabilizes the wrist in a straight and slightly bent-back position. It minimizes pressure on the median nerve and helps in treatment of CTS.
A wrist injury or sprain usually takes upto six weeks to heal. It is recommended to wear a wrist splint for that duration
It is advisable to wear a wrist splint at night as most people do not remain in one position all night long and a splint helps to prevent the hand and wrist from turning into awkward positions
