If you find yourself waking up in the night with numbness in your hand, or pain in your wrist throughout the day, you might be experiencing carpal tunnel syndrome. If your symptoms persist, it might be time to look into getting a carpal tunnel splint for your wrist, for daytime or night time habitual resting.
Carecompany stocks a wide range of wrist, ankle, knee and hand splints. A splint or brace can provide lasting support in situations of repetitive strain, or injuries caused by prolonged pressure on joints.
Chrisofix technology provides a cast that is stable and mouldable at the same time, allowing for creation of casts and orthoses that are quickly adjustable without the need of water or heat. They are suitable for treatment of carpaltunnel, thumb joint pain and tendonitis.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is unusual pressure on the median nerve in the wrist due to swelling. This is most likely to happen in the carpal tunnel, a part of the wrist that the median nerve runs through, giving the syndrome its name. Carpal tunnel Syndrome often manifests as numbness in the fingers and pain in the wrist, and can cause long lasting damage if not properly treated early.
One of the most common causes of carpal tunnel is twisting of the wrist while sleeping. Using a wrist brace or hand splint while you sleep will stop the wrist from bending and causing strain during the night. This can aid in healing and stop further damage from occurring. Carpal tunnel that goes untreated and left to get worse can cause lasting, sometimes permanent damage that can only be fixed with surgery.
In addition to carpal tunnel splints, we also stock resting ankle, knee and leg braces for use after surgery. These braces are ideal for maintaining the resting position of a leg or ankle, and are able to aid in healing after injury or surgery. Please view the individual product pages for information on sizing and usage.
