How do I know the WristWidget® will work?
The only injury that responds to taping of the wrist, or wearing a WristWidget® is a Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex (TFCC) tear.
Does your wrist feel better when you tape it as shown in the test? If so, then you're on the right track with the WristWidget®!
What is the TFCC?
The Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex (TFCC) is a ligament connecting bone to bone. It supports the wrist with grip, weight-bearing, and rotation (supination and pronation). It keeps the radius and ulna from painfully spreading apart and is the primary stabilizer of the wrist.
TFCC injury is characterized by pain on the ulnar (pinky) side of the wrist that gets worse with gripping, rotating, weight-bearing movements.
Common splints can be very painful as they apply compression the Ulna (wristbone).
Sports are hard on wrists
If your sport causes you to bear weight, rotate, flex, or extend your wrist, you're at risk for a triangular fibrocartilage (TFCC) tear.
A must-have for sports like golf, tennis, baseball, rugby, polo, volleyball, hockey, water polo, surfing, climbing, bowling, acrobatics, gymnastics, soccer, badmiton, weight lifting, bodybuilding, and yoga.
