Upper and lower extremity supports and braces may be an option for people who have acute injuries or chronic pain with instability.
Braces are used for a wide variety of problems and conditions, and are available as functional braces or prophylactic braces. Functional braces are designed to substitute for damaged ligaments, such as for a patient with an ACL tear. Prophylactic braces are used to prevent injuries, and are worn by athletes to minimize the risk of injury.
If the doctor determines you will benefit from bracing, our clinic will provide you with the most effective equipment to help prevent further injury and aid in recovery from your existing condition.
