Upper extremity orthoses are braces and supports designed for the shoulder, arm, elbow, wrist, and hand. They can be used for a range of needs from stability to immobilization.
Upper extremity orthoses improve functionality or restore structural characteristics of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. They are also used for patients who have neurological problems, such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, and peripheral nerve injury.
If you have carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, wrist sprain or pain, or post-fracture management, you may need a wrist and hand orthosis.
Wrist and hand orthoses are also used for contracture management or during activities, depending on the kind of injury you have suffered. At Allen Orthopedic Labs, we’ll fit you with the appropriate orthosis so your injury heals well and so you can return to your daily life without impediment.
