Wrist Supports for Arthritis
There are a number of types of arthritis that can affect the wrist and hand. This includes the most common type of arthritis - osteoarthritis - and can affect the thumb joint in particular as well as other locations in the wrist. Arthritis is caused by the cartilage that protects the bones from rubbing against each other becoming worn away and friction is caused when the bones start to rub against each other, causing swelling and pain in the joints. Arthritis is most common in the hand and wrist
Wrist Supports for Arthritis come in a range of different styles, making them suitable for the exact type of arthritis you are suffering from. The support offered helps to reduce pain while the compression minimises swelling. By supporting the affected joint, you are giving the tendons and ligaments in the surrounding area a chance to recover and heal, allowing you to stabilise the condition. Arthritis is a degenerative condition but using a wrist support for arthritis can help control the symptoms and ease the pain.
