Wrist dislocation occurs when any of the eight carpal bones are dislocated. Severe pain and wrist deformity normally signals a dislocation and medical attention should be sought immediately to prevent any long term damage. Tingling in the thumb, index or middle fingers indicates nerve damage may have occurred. The most common reasons for a wrist dislocation is a fall or a traumatic event affecting the wrist directly. Surgery may be required to repair any long term damage to the wrist but immobilisation is key for aiding the recovery process.
Wrist supports for wrist dislocation provide the stability that a recovering injury requires. The brace keeps the wrist in a neutral position and restricts movement, preventing the injury from being further aggravated and stopping additional long term damage from being inflicted upon the ligaments and muscles. Immobilisation of the wrist through the use of a dislocation wrist support helps to control the swelling and relieves pain by providing gentle compression across the whole wrist. By restricting the movement of the wrist, it gives the tissues surrounding the dislocation a chance to recover even when the bones are positioned back in the correct place.
