Very Effective for Stability & Pain Relief
January 24, 2019
I have a TFCC small tear ame ecu tendinitis 6 months now. I was splinted and did 2 month of PT. At one point I could’t hold my cell phone or drive or do dishes. TFCC issues take a long time to heal and you may need to wear wrist supports for life and only do pikes and push ups on knuckles or w a grip assist. Small thing to give up in exchange for day to day functionality.
I have used a variety of wrist wraps through out my injury. At first I used wrist wraps but I had odd sharp pains when I put weight on my wrists or supinate them with weights. Also, the wraps seems to hurt my ulna bone. Then I tried the wrist widget which I love but I didn’t get better so I went to the doc and pt. They said at this stage you need max tfcc support & prescribed a plastic ulna gutter splint then I progressed to the ulna booster. I wore the splint 24/7 for 3 weeks then switched to the ulna booster and a night brace, but after several months this was causing stiffness in the thumb area. Lately I was wearing the wrist widget when exercising but while it stabilizes the tfcc it also irritates the ecu tendon. I was having pain along my pinkie and into the hand until I put thus on instant relief. For anyone who has had this it is painful. I worked out and not only did it feel stable ( no clicking) no pain and increased strength and ROM. Before putting this on I couldn’t put weight on my hands w flexion but I could with this strap ( still had to be careful no burpees or anything). The genius is the space for the head of the ulna bc most wraps compress this are which increases pain, inflammation, and compressed the tfcc space when it needs to be opened up which the strap does. Then it pulls the 2 bones of the wrist together. It is also a little more comfortable than the widget bc it is made of neoprene and the hole for the ulna bone is a soft gel.
