Most people bend their wrists when they sleep. That puts pressure on the median nerve. A brace can help because it keeps your wrist in a straight, neutral position. A 2012 study found that using a wrist brace at night did more to relieve carpal tunnel symptoms than using no treatment at all.
Symptoms for a wrist brace:
Burning, numbness, tingling, or pain in your fingers and thumb — symptoms that may be worse after you’ve been asleep. Dropping things more often than usual. Weakness in your hand.
Dynacore Medical and Orthoics carries a variety line of wrist braces, and special order braces are always welcome.
