In fact, there is no strict division between sports braces and medical braces.

The choice of braces support depends on the needs of your joint parts.

In terms of the definition of sports and medical wrist braces:

The role of the sports brace: the first is to provide pressure and reduce swelling; the second is to limit movement and allow the injured area to recuperate.

For example, if you wear a brace during sports, you can still move freely. However, if you are injured in sports, you will have limited movement, not to mention sports, with the medical brace.

In a nutshell, a brace is to protect your joints from injury, and a sports brace can protect you from injury during sports. The medical brace is to help you recover from the injury and to help you fix it so you don’t get hurt again.
