A repetitive stress wrist injury (RSI) is a painful condition that results from repetitive use of the wrist and hand, frequently in a work-related setting from typing, using a mouse and sometimes other activities. Damage to your muscles, tendons or nerves can be caused by repetitive motions and can lead to severe pain, inflammation, loss of function, weakness or tingling in your wrists, fingers and hands.
One of the most common wrist RSIs in the wrist is carpal tunnel syndrome, which occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes compressed at the wrist, causing swollen and painful fingers, wrists or hands. Other RSIs include sprained wrist, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, tendonitis, De Quervain’s syndrome or bursitis. These injuries may sometimes also cause pain and inflammation in the shoulders, forearms and elbows.
Repetitive stress injuries can be caused by different types of activities that cause repetitive motion like typing, using a computer mouse and some kinds of sports activities. Preventing wrist RSIs involves taking frequent breaks to rest, configuring your work area to maintain healthy posture, using ergonomic equipment, and practicing regular stretching and strengthening exercises. You should proactively try to prevent repetitive stress injuries so you don’t inadvertently worsen them or need surgery.
Symptoms of an RSI in the wrist can include:
– Loss of function in your hand or wrist
These symptoms may occur gradually over time, and may be worse during certain repetitive activities that involve the use of the wrist and hand.
This will depend on what type of injury you have, which activity may have caused it and how severe and persistent your symptoms are. For advice about how to help your repetitive strain injury, ask your Doctor about the benefits of wearing a Ficor Fit wristband and how it can accelerate your recovery.
Experience the innovative design
of the Ficor Fit wristband
Treatment for an RSI injury in the wrist may include wearing a wristband like our Ficor Fit wristband that provides relief to the wrist by exerting gentle pressure on the two primary arm bones connected to the wrist while stabilizing it.
Sometimes a doctor will also prescribe rest, cold or heat therapy, compression, elevation, physical therapy, medication, and in severe cases, surgery. To prevent further damage and promote healing, seek medical attention if your repetitive stress injury persists.
The wind-wire dial on our wristband allows for easy control and release of pressure and the sides of each band are designed to apply pressure on the 2 column bones which creates stabilization. It steers clear of the wrist area where nerves and blood flow are located. If you are suffering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, the Ficor wristband is designed to provide pain relief through radioulnar stabilization.
Our Ficor Fit wristband and our Ficor Goldilocks wristband ensure all-day comfort for your wrists. The Ficor wristband is a stylish and user-friendly solution crafted to combat the challenges of repetitive stress injuries and to mitigate pain while it effortlessly integrates into your daily life.
