Kinesio Pre-Cut Wrist Support is designed to provide support for carpal tunnel syndrome, provide wrist support and alleviate associated pain. Each packet contains a single-use, customizable set of tape strips and instructions. Each Wrist Support application comes with two black I-strips and one blue I-strip cut from genuine Kinesio Tex Tape Gold.
The wrist is surrounded by a band of fibrous tissue that normally functions as a support for the joint. The tight space between this fibrous band and the wrist bone is called the carpal tunnel. Any condition that causes swelling or a change in position of the tissue within the carpal tunnel can cause tingling and numbness of the thumb, index, and the middle fingers -- a condition known as "carpal tunnel syndrome."
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other wrist strains may keep you from performing simple hand movements, such as brushing your hair or holding a fork. You may have trouble using your thumb while doing simple tasks such as opening a jar or using a screwdriver. To preserve or regain skills in typing, video games or woodworking, turn to Kinesio Dynamic Wrist Support.
