Orthotic Support For Upper Limb Injuries
You wear braces to keep your limbs in a neutral, inactive position that helps an injury heal or prevents a new one. There are many possible causes you may need to consider using this type of orthotic joint support.
- Broken Bones That Don’t Need Casts
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Joint Stress From Video Games
- Nerve Injuries & Stress Fractures
- Pain Reduction From Prior Damage
- Repetitive Injuries Like Tennis Elbow
- Sprains & Strains Of Ligaments
- Upper Limb Tendonitis & Arthritis
How Do You Use Wrist Or Hand Braces?
Wrist and hand orthotics are usually made with a stiff nylon or neoprene material that is mildly flexible. They can be hinged or rigid, reversible or for overnight use, depending on doctor’s orders. Velcro or buckled straps help to keep your supports in place. You’ll want a firm fit, but nothing tight enough to cut off circulation.
Types Of Splints & Bracing
Braces are usually prescribed for longer term support of injured limbs and muscles. Splints are often for short-term use or in emergencies to immobilize limbs and prevent further damage.
The type of brace you wear may be for general support of a specific area. For example, for the thumb and wrist or ulnar drift for knuckles. A Wrist Hand Orthosis (WHO) is a type of upper limb orthotics covering both the forearm and palm to immobilize the joint or support the muscles.
You may also need braces or supports made for specific activities.
- Cheerleading & Tumbling
- Tennis & Golf
- Gaming Wrist Braces
