Wrist Supports for Osteoarthritis of the Wrist

Rather than being specific to a particular joint, osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It can affect any part of the body, but in this case is found in the wrist. Osteoarthritis of the wrist is developed because the cartilage wears away as the bones rub against it. Eventually, it is too thin to cushion the bones and they begin to rub together, the friction resulting in pain, discomfort and swelling. The surrounding tissues try to compensate for this by working harder, which only results in them thickening.
