The wrist is a complex joint, and as such is vulnerable to injury. Not only that, but wrists can often take a long time to heal, which is frustrating to those suffering from wrist injuries. If you’re tired of waiting for your wrist pain to go away so you can resume your normal life, get a wrist brace. Wrist braces from Elite Medical Supply can stabilize your wrist, relieve pain and promote faster healing.
If you’re wondering if Medicare will cover your wrist brace, give us a call to find out. Medicare covers many types of braces, including back braces and knee braces.

Because we instinctively put our hands out in front of us when we fall, we suffer wrist injuries more frequently than other types of injuries. Our wrists are designed to allow us liberal movement in many directions, and when you have a rupture, strain, sprain or fracture, this can be quite painful. A wrist brace immobilizes the wrist, allowing you to use your hand while limiting your range of motion to prevent pain.
As notorious as wrist injuries from accidents are, other conditions can cause chronic wrist pain, such as arthritis. Wearing a wrist brace can allow you to engage in more activities without pain, such as driving, writing, painting and playing cards.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is another reason for chronic wrist pain. Oftentimes limiting the activity that caused it — such as typing, playing an instrument and doing needlework — can improve your condition, and wearing a wrist brace in the meantime can help.
