A ganglion cyst can occur on any joint in the body but is commonly found on the wrists, back of the hands or the fingers. The cyst is a fluid-filled sack that forms under the skin, although it is not apparent why they develop. The most common belief is the fluid that protects the tendons and joints leaks out and collects together to form the cyst. Although the cyst is not harmful, they can be painful. They can disappear over time on their own without medical intervention.
Surgery can be required if a cyst is painful. Using a wrist support for ganglion cysts is ideal for supporting the recovery of surgery. It can also help to control the swelling and any pain experienced if surgery is not considered an option. The gentle compression targets the affected area and helps to control the ganglion cyst. Using a wrist support for a ganglion cyst may help to prevent the condition from getting worse and helps to alleviate pain by supporting the wrist and holding it in a natural position. Preventing the movement of the wrist, the wrist support stops the condition from being aggravated.
