Weak Wrist / Wrist Brace
Went to the physio today to improve the back posture while cycling and I mentioned painful wrists in passing and he manipulated them and his face showed dismay and he recommended I see someone pretty quick, something about the amount of play i.e. my hand can be displaced 1cm either side of wrist.
Cue myriad of fears about not being able to ride again, particiularly as I am just ramping up cycling toward SDW attempt. Has anyone heard of a proper wrist brace that would bypass the wrist with any stressors? My father has a knee brace that was custom made to support his knee during skiing. I plan to ask him but has anyone heard of such a thing for wrists?

I damaged wrist tendons a few years back (making an ar$e of a drop in the Pila bike park). It took ages to heal and I ended up guiding the whole of the following summer wearing a wrist brace from a French pharmacy. It was prescribed by a physio to immobilise the joint in daily life in order to let the tendons heal, but it worked well on the bike too and wasn’t too restrictive. Had a metal strip running down the thumb, heel of hand, then wrist, so was pretty robust.Posted 4 years agoslowboydickieSubscriber
Sounds just what I might need. The brace, not the vinegar strokes…
Wondering it it could be to do with the increased time and hand position on a road bike, going from nothing to 4 hours twice a week as I commute to London. Wouldn’t have thought this would be the case, though, because so may people ride road bikes and never heard this before.Posted 4 years agomeiklebikeMember
I damaged my wrists with martial arts rsi. it hurt like hell on the mtb especially after a further over the bars arm to ground experience. once the inflamation went (it too a couple of month) I started kettle bell training light to medium heavy. pain has totally gone now!Posted 4 years agobig_n_daftMember

brilliant wrist brace I had to use it in the Alps recently due to a work related wrist injury (ironic considering I’m an Osteopath) had no issues with it has removable bracing components to lessen the stiffness as your wrist gets better.
