Custom Braces Keep You Active
Do you want to be more active, but your joint pain is holding you back? A custom fitted brace can make a world of difference in enjoying daily recreational activities. Whether you just want to walk without pain, or engage in aggressive sports activities, a custom-fitted brace can give you the support you need.
Braces come in all shapes and sizes, fitting a variety of joints, including the spine. However, it is important to understand that generic braces are no where near as effective as a custom- fitted brace. A custom-fitted brace is fitted exactly to your body shape and size. As we are all made differently and our needs are different, having a specialist evaluate and fit a custom brace will give your joints the exact support they need.
Custom-fitted braces are used for:
- Relieving knee pain and providing support with walking or sports
- Providing ankle support, which is especially important after injury
- Low back pain to allow freedom of movement while providing support
- Elbow and wrist pain with lifting activities or sports
If you currently have a brace do remember that over the years, your brace will stretch out and become less effective over time. It is important to keep your brace up to date with the latest technologies and materials. Most insurances cover custom-fitted braces, so call us today at Howard Orthotics and Prosthetics, to discuss your needs and help you live a more active, pain-free lifestyle.
How a custom fitted brace can help you
Do you have pain when moving? Whether it is your ankle, knee, neck or back, pain can stop you from enjoying life. Often, joints become unstable over time with arthritis, injuries or surgeries. This can lead to more bone rubbing on bone, thus causing pain. Braces help to support joints, providing stability, while guiding the range of movement.
Not all braces are the same, and having an expert guide you to the correct brace is essential. Thus how well a brace is designed and fitted will provide the needed support to your joints. Costs don’t have to be high for a custom fitted brace. Many off the shelf braces, just need the expert fitting to your body to allow maximum results. Our experts at Physiomed can recommend and properly fit a brace that will work for you and your budget.
