Arthrosis and arthritis are similar in the sense that both affect the joints and the cartilages. Arthrosis is associated with age and the general wear and tear of the cartilages as we get older. The degenerative condition causes the cartilages to become worn and irregular, causing pain, loss of mobility and loss of muscle strength as the condition progresses. Women have a higher chance of being affected by arthrosis but constant pressure on a certain joint can also increase the risk.
Wrist Supports for Arthrosis are an ideal way to help stabilise the joints. By providing gentle compression around the affected area, you are supporting the joints and easing the pain caused by them rubbing together. Wrist supports for arthrosis also alleviate the discomfort on the surrounding tissue and ligaments and give them the chance to heal rather than being placed under constant pressure. Wrist braces help to maintain a natural position for your wrist and thumb, again reducing the stress on the surrounding area.
Using a wrist support for arthrosis is a good way of helping to control and slow down the progression of the condition. Due to it being a degenerative ailment that progresses with age, however, it cannot be cured. There are a range of wrist supports for arthrosis available here at Health and Care, allowing you to select the one that will assist your condition.
