Introducing the TFCC Wrist Brace for Triangular FibroCartilage Complex (TFCC) injuries and tears, designed to support the ligaments, tendons, and cartilage of an injured TFCC while it heals.
Not all compression is created equal. We start with an unapologetic obsession for exceptional quality, meaning less downtime and more wins.
All of our compression products are developed, packaged, and shipped from our warehouse in North Carolina, USA.
Wearing the Body Helix TFCC Brace stabilizes the tissues of the Triangular FibroCartilage Complex (TFCC), providing pain relief and supporting the structures of the TFCC while they heal. Latex and rubber free, the TFCC Brace offers 24/7 support and stability for both peripheral and Central TFCC tears. Wear it during sports and exercise, while you are going about your day, and even while you sleep. Adjust the pressure according to your activity and the support you need. The nylon and cotton fabric offer firm yet comfortable support. For those with a smaller wrist, the ends can be easily trimmed for a better fit.
The Triangular FibroCartilage Complex connects the bones in your forearm with the bones in your wrist and helps stabilize, support and cushion your wrist. The TFCC is load-bearing, meaning that it remains under stress and has to bear weight often. It stabilizes the wrist, allowing it to move in six different directions. You can rotate your wrist and grip objects tightly because of your TFCC.
When you swing a racket, a bat, or a similar object your wrist is in a prime position to tear your TFCC. Repetitive motions (such as swinging a bat or racket) can also break down the tissues that make up the TFCC, leading to chronic degeneration of the TFCC tissue. Other instances that may cause an acute injury or tear of your TFCC include falling on your wrist, twisting your wrist while weight-bearing, fracturing your wrist, and degeneration of the tissues as you age. These injuries and tears result in pain on the ulnar “pinky” side of your hand.
Symptoms on an injured or torn TFCC include:
The TFCC Wrist Brace is specific to TFCC degeneration and tears. It will not help with other wrist injuries which may require a different sleeve or wrap. Please see our Full Wrist Helix or Adjustable Wrist Helix if your issue is not related to the TFCC.
Unlike many of our Body Helix products, the TFCC Wrist Brace needs to be hand washed and air dried to insure that the brace will remain stiff enough to offer the stabilization needed for the TFCC while it heals.
The TFCC Wrist Brace is a one size fits most. For those with smaller wrists, the TFCC Wrist Brace can be easily trimmed using scissors.
