My mom gave me Back On Track’s wrist braces in hope that they would help relieve some of my pain. I had worn all sorts of braces and wraps, but none had really been effective. Back On Track products take a different approach, though – according to their website, Back On Track products are made with “state-of-the art, ceramic powder-infused Welltex fabric, which works with your natural body warmth to provide a gentle warmth. The ceramic powder reflects your own body warmth as a far infrared wave, a form of energy that has documented pain relieving effect.” I figured it was worth a try.
The braces definitely help my wrists. Wearing them seems to result in a greater range of mobility and comfort. After wearing them while sitting around the house a few times, I decided to put them on while I rode. I found it easier to hold the reins, and the pain in my hands and wrists, while not gone, was reduced.
The Back On Track wrist braces are comfortable and flexible. They fit snugly, but I found that the fit didn’t bother me after a few minutes. I like the fact that they’re black, so they can fit discreetly under most outfits. They’re a bit warm, so they probably wouldn’t be the most comfortable during hot summer rides, but the improvement I felt while and after wearing them has convinced me to keep up the practice of using them during rides whenever possible. I’d be interested to try Back On Track’s riding gloves and may have to pick up a pair in the future.
