What is the best wrist support for your injury?
The best wrist support is the one that is made specifically for your injury, and your wrist pain level. A best wrist brace for wrist sprain may differ significantly from the one designed for broken wrist. Also, in some cases you may need to use a wrist support not only for wrist pain, but the one with dual support; for wrist and thumb, or for wrist and fingers.
