wrist braces for carpal tunnel while riding- any preferences?
Hi all, electronic tests show that I have a touch of carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands, so in addition to stretches, exercises, proper ergonomics, all that, my doc wants me to wear wrist stabilizers for a while while riding.
This strikes me as a pretty reasonable suggestion, so I'm wondering if any of you have had good experiences with short, metal-braced wrist stabilizers for this purpose. Doc recommended the Futuro brand and another poster on BF liked Hely & Weber Modabber Wrist Orthosis.
Any other ideas or recommendations? Not about carpal tunnel syndrome generally but riding with wrist braces specifically.
thanks so much,
