Wrist Arthritis Pain Relief Solutions

What is wrist osteoarthritis?

Every joint in the human body is lined with articular cartilage. This type of cartilage decreases friction in the joint and provides a layer of cushion between the bones so the joint can move smoothly and pain-free. Over time, the articular cartilage wears thin and in some places can diminish entirely. This is known as osteoarthritis.

What causes wrist osteoarthritis?

When the articular cartilage of a joint is completely worn away, the bones in the joint collide and cause what is known as bone-on-bone pain. Swelling, stiffness, and difficulty using the wrist and hand are also commonly seen symptoms of wrist arthritis.

How will a wrist brace help with the symptoms of wrist arthritis?

The right brace will alleviate pain and provide stability to the joint with medical-grade compression and supportive, customizable stays and straps. For mild cases of arthritis, a simple wrist compression wrap can work to alleviate painful symptoms. For moderate or severe cases of arthritis, a brace with more stability will be the better choice.
