I don't think this is true. My daughter is very strong in her hands and wrists -- she's been thru a ton of PT and OT. However, skinny little girl wrists were not designed to take the kind of pounding and force a Yurckenko vault (and other tumbling) put on them. She has been instructed to wear them for vault and floor by both the ortho and PT.
Totally agree with this! I think that it is a somewhat common problem when you hit level 8+ and are pounding those little wrists!
Especially since dd has been wearing tiger paws for 2 years now with no wrist issues until now.
