I love this
on June 5, 2015
I have to admit, when my doctor recommended this after I hurt my wrist playing tennis I was skeptical. I just didn't believe that a product like this could offer support comparable to the support of athletic tape without significantly restricting movement. After procrastinating for awhile, I finally ordered it without expecting much. After taking it out of the box, it didn't look like much; I didn't believe it would work. I was wrong.
My wrist was to the point that I felt shooting pain through my wrist whenever I tried to serve, even with cortisone, ice and anti-inflammatory meds. After using this, I immediately felt the difference; while the pain didn't go away instantly I was able to play a whole set relatively normally. Well, I'm now at a point where I can use it normally and this brace was a big part of that. Quite simply, things that used to hurt a lot no longer do. Even compared to my pre-injury state, my wrist and hand feel much more rested after playing with this than they did without it.
This really does work just as well as tape, and it does so without restricting movement at all. I can't recommend it enough.
