I broke my hand last year and now I get sharp pains whenever I try to write. Is there a brace for that?

In brief: MAYBE
A brace may help, but the question must be asked- why do you still have pain? One possibility: the bones did not heal properly (called a non-union).
A simple xray may help sort out the diagnosis.
