Tiger Paws can be used to prevent wrist strain and injury in athletics or everyday activity. After injury, Tiger Paws Wrist Supports should be used according to your doctor or physical therapist's recommendations. Tiger Paws help to support your wrists during any high impact activity or any skill that involves wrist extension beyond the normal range of motion. Examples of these skills include: vaulting (especially Yurchenko vaults), tumbling, basing for cheer or stunt, or arm balances. Tiger Paws Wrist Supports can also be used when discomfort is experienced during longer durations of low impact, weight-bearing activity. It is advised that Tiger Paws are used in conjunction with regular wrist strengthening exercises, and should not be used during warm up or conditioning exercises, unless directed by a physician.
