Football Wrist Braces
Think of how many times you use your wrists each day to pick things up, write and type. Protecting the wrists, especially if you play sports like football, is important. At Walgreens, we offer a selection of football wrist braces for all wrist sizes. Whether you play football or another sport, talk to your doctor and discover what type of wrist supports are available and appropriate for you.
Why Use a Wrist Brace?
Some football players tape their wrists for support during a game. This can be a time-consuming process. Football wrist braces provide added support without the time constraints of taping. This may be ideal for players who have weak wrists or have had a previous wrist injury.
Wrist Braces with Adjustable Straps
When you need firm wrist support that's comfortable, choose from wrist braces with adjustable straps and support stays to hold your wrist firmly in place when you're out on the field. These easy-to-apply braces are made with breathable fabric with padding to help keep your wrist comfortable all day. They're available in latex-free fabric as well.
Wrist Braces with Laces
Wrist braces with a lace design offer the ultimate in custom fit. You can adjust the laces to increase the compression on your wrist for maximum support and stability when playing a game, practicing or engaging in other activities where your wrist needs extra help.
Enjoy the comfort of wrist braces made of soft, suede-like material that supports your wrist while wicking away moisture to keep your forearm and wrist cool and dry. Each is designed to hold your wrist in a neutral position.
Cold and Hot Therapy
When you have an injured wrist, cold therapy can help relieve swelling while hot therapy can help ease pain and stiffness. Available are wrist braces with a built-in gel pack to deliver targeted cool or warm therapy to a sore, swollen or achy wrist.
Tips for Choosing a Wrist Brace
Wrist braces for football are available in various sizes based on wrist size. Measure your wrist to ensure you're choosing a size that will fit comfortably on your wrist. If you have a wrist injury or have had one in the past, consult your doctor to find out which option is best for you.
