A deep cut on the side of the hand can damage the tendons, making it impossible to bend or flex one or more of the fingers or thumb. Flexor Tendons are located near the surface under the skin and so can easily be damaged by a cut. Flexor tendon injuries are common amongst sports, especially if the hands such as climbing or you grab another player, tearing the tendons from the bone. The risk of flexor tendon injuries is increased with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis as it weakens the tendons and makes them more susceptible to damage.

Wrist supports for flexor tendon injuries are an essential part of the recovery process, regardless of whether surgery is required or not. The damage cannot heal if the ends of the tendons are not touching. Using a wrist support immobilises the area and keeps the tendons in the correct position while they are given the chance to heal. Flexor tendon wrist supports prevent further damage from occurring by stopping the wrist from bending and tearing the tendon further. Using a wrist support for flexor tendon injuries also helps to control the pain and assists with rehabilitation if surgery is needed.

There are a wide range of wrist supports for flexor tendon injuries available here at Health and Care. If you require additional information or help choosing the right wrist brace for your needs, please contact our support team on 020 7720 2266 and they will be happy to assist you further.
