Best Supports for Nighttime Use
Friday, 25 August 2017 | Admin
Do you feel aches and pains in your wrist that tend to come on at night? Or do you get an onset of pain first thing in the morning? Many people who suffer from wrist conditions such as arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), or De Quervain's syndrome usually complain of symptoms such as pain, tenderness or stiffness that worsen at night, or feel very intense when they wake up in the morning. We value a good night's sleep here at Wrist Supports, so we have put together a list of braces and supports that are suitable to wear at night and have feeling as comfortable as possible.
Wrist Pain at Night
Wrist pain is not ideal in any situation, but especially not at night when you are trying to rest. Certain conditions such as CTS, arthritis and de Quervain's syndrome are known for invoking pain in patients during the night, or cause stiffness first thing in the morning. Not only can this cause sleep disturbance, but also set a negative tone for the rest of the day because of the pain and your lack of sleep. We want to make sure you get that well-earned beauty sleep each night, so have compiled a list of some of the best nighttime wrist supports.
Vulkan AE Advanced Elastic Wrist Support
If you've recently suffered from a sprain, or have a condition such as CTS, arthritis or repetitive strain injury (RSI), the discomfort this can cause, particularly at night, can be particularly unpleasant. The Vulkan AE Advanced Elastic Wrist Support can be worn anytime during day or night to support your risk and protect yourself from pain.
This wrist support offers effective compression to help relieve and alleviate pain from mild injuries. The elastic material retains heat and stimulates blood flow to speed up the body's natural healing process, and the breathable fabric wicks away sweat to keep the skin dry and odour free.
OS1st WS6 Sports Compression Wrist Sleeve
Though it has sports in its name, the OS1st WS6 Sports Compression Wrist Sleeve is actually suitable for a large manner of situations due to its compact and lightweight design. The soft, hypo-allergenic material is suitable for sensitive skin, and contains anti-migration gel that prevents it from slipping up and down, perfect for keeping it in place when tossing and turning in bed.
The sleeve contains six different compression zones to give variable, target compression for optimum support, which is perfect for conditions like arthritis and CTS. This support gently stabilises and supports aching muscles and tendons, and enhances circulation for effective pain relief.
Ottobock Manu Forsa Volar Wrist Support
If you suffer from chronic wrist irritation, it is vital that it be prevented to reduce pain during nighttime. The Ottobock Manu Forsa Volar Wrist Support has a unique Y-shaped splint that provides stable support to the palm, and secure straps to ensure a comfortable fit.
The Manu Forsa brace provides an exceptional volar support thank to its rigid Y-splint, which is perfect for supporting the palm and keeping the wrist straight, particularly for post-traumatic or post-operative conditions. To ensure comfort, the splint is surrounded by a soft cushioning pad that relieves pressure on the palm, and is lightweight in design to reduce bulk.
Dynamix Wrist Palm Support
Suffering from an acute injury or condition such as osteoarthritis can wreak havoc on your sleeping pattern as pain onsets at night. The Dynamix Wrist Palm Support is an effective sleeve that offers support and light compression, allowing your wrist to remain protected and comfortable at all times so that you can sleep better.
The Dynamix Palm Support comes in four different sizes to ensure that you get the best and most comfortable fit. The sleeve covers a large portion of the forearm and much of the palm, so that you can get full protection and support. It effectively reduces pain and swelling, immobilising the wrist and palm as you sleep so that you can get a speedy recovery.
Oppo Biomagnetic Wrist Support
A sprained or weak wrist can be detrimental when you try to get on with your daily life, and can even prove tricky getting to sleep without experiencing pain. The unique Oppo Biomagnetic Wrist Support is an innovative product that uses magnets on acu-points along your wrist to help relieve swelling, pain and discomfort.
Acupuncture and magnetic therapy are popular alternative practices that help with pain relief, and this support combines both to alleviate pain in your wrist. The magnets in the sleeve target your acupuncture points on both sides of your wrist to offer unobtrusive and maximum effect when it comes to compression and pain relief.
