I spend a lot of time at the keyboard. As a result I sometimes suffer from pain in my wrist and fingers. I am sure it has something to do with my carpel nerve or the arthritis that is increasing causing me discomfort. It can be annoying at the least and painful enough to keep me up at night at its worst. This is why I always keep an Ace Wrist Splint on hand for times when the pain is bad enough to warrant some relief measures. The Ace Wrist Splint is a neoprene wrist wrap. It has a removable rigid splint piece. I usually sleep using the splint and remove the splint during the day for more flexibility. The splint keeps my wrist in the correct position to relieve pressure on the carpel nerve. My pain is usually relieved after about 3 nights of splint use. If need be I can also wear it during the day. Usually, even with the splint in place, I can manage my daily chores but if I need more flexibility while also having some added support I simply remove the splint.
The Ace wrist wrap is available for right or left hand use and it is very durable and uses Velcro to close. Ace is also a trusted brand that has been around for a long time. If you suffer from wrist or hand pain brought on by excessive and repetitive motion such as typing you should try the Ace Wrist Splint.
You should be able to find Ace products anywhere; Wal-Mart, drug stores and most grocery store chains. I bought mine at Giant Foods. It costs around $12.00 and will be found in the first aid section or the same area the shoe inserts and foot care products are found.
