Whether it's typing away at the keyboard for work, doing some gardening on the weekend or getting a good match of tennis going, tendonitis in the wrist can cause you a lot of grief in a short amount of time. Using a tendonitis wrist brace is one of the best things you can do for the joint.
Bauerfeind have a range of tendonitis wrist braces that help to unload the joint, take pressure off the tendons and relieve the wrist from pain, swelling and stiffness.
What causes wrist tendonitis?
Tendonitis is most commonly caused by sustained strain of the tendon without adequate rest. In the wrist, this is most often due to sports or physical labour where your wrist has been under strain, even a little bit, for an extended period of time, but can also happen at your desk or even during a hobby, if your position and use of tools isn't correct.
Will these weaken my muscles?
While cheaper and less effective braces can cause an issue known as reliance (where the muscles become weaker and rely on the brace), Bauerfeind have perfected the blend of stability and movement. By restricting or immobilising specific parts of the ankle that need it, and freeing up the rest, you can continue to exercise, building and maintaining strength in the joint.
What makes these products better than others?
Simply put, Bauerfeind have set the global standard for medical braces, compression and insoles. Using the highest quality materials to construct decades-refined products that have been clinically proven to address a vast range of issues. There's no substitute for quality, and Bauerfeind have that from the simplest strap to the largest brace.
