The need for forearm support braces and wrist guards for carpel tunnel syndrome has become much more pronounced in the past twenty years. This is partly because of the number of people engaged in repetitive movements involved in computer data entry or mouse operation, but also because leisure sports activities are on the rise and many of these are stressful on wrist joints.
Wrist and forearm splints may be suggested for people with weak wrists or for those that have been previously injured, for tendonitis wrist support and even as a preventative for those who awaken in the morning with pain or numbness after sleeping on their hands at night. Here you have access to the best orthopedic wrist braces for carpal tunnel syndrome, occupational stabilization and relief from the pain of wrist strains and sprains.

Bounded by bones and ligaments, the carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway about as big around as your thumb located on the palm side of your wrist. This tunnel protects a main nerve to your hand and nine tendons that bend your fingers. Pressure placed on the nerve produces the numbness, pain and, eventually, hand weakness that characterize carpal tunnel syndrome.
