Easing wrist pressure-Low rise or high rise bar?

http://www.bikeroom.com/s.nl;jsessio...2&category=487

This mighty fine bar appears to be on quite the special. My current bike setup puts a little too much pressure on my wrists. Would a low rise or high rise bar cure such a thing?

Thanks!

Before investing a new bar, you should adjust your saddle (nose up).

Depending on your setup, a riser bar can add a whole lot of extra comfort. I have experienced ulnar nerve impingment (that funny-bone feeling) while riding, and going to a riser bar helped.
