Rheumatoid Arthritis

Arthritis in the hand and wrist can occur in two forms; Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in the wrist and is often referred to as “wear and tear”.

Prolonged, repetitive use of the wrist can result in the erosion of the cartilage in the wrist and lead to the bones fusing thus resulting in stiffness and aching in the joints. Rheumatoid Arthritis is a systemic disease which causes the joints to become inflamed, painful and swollen and may reduce your ability to grip.

Actesso wrist splints can help reduce the strain on the wrist and aid with basic movement.
