May be suitable treatment for:
Wrist sprains and strains: Wrist sprains are caused when the ligaments of the wrist become stretched or worn. This can occur when the wrist is bent forcefully such as when an individual breaks a fall with their wrists.
Arthritic pain: Arthritis of the wrists occurs when the wrist joint becomes inflamed. Inflammation causes swelling, pain and stiffness in the wrist.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: CTS is caused by pressure on the nerves which run through the wrist. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome may manifest itself as tingling, pins and needles, numbness or pain.
Weak and overused wrists: Prolonged use of the wrist, extended force exerted on the ligaments, muscles and tendons of the wrist can manifest itself as pain experienced in the wrist and hand region. This is amplified where muscles of the wrist are already weak.
Measure evenly around wrist joint.
