Abstract

The hand and wrist of both athletes and musicians are very susceptible to injuries. Proper conditioning of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints of the hand and wrist are crucial for injury prevention. Often, orthotic devices, from simple taping to polyethylene casts, can provide adequate protection and support to allow injuries to heal properly or prevent injuries from recurring in susceptible tissues.
