Custom Braces From Active Care Physiotherapy
During the process of healing, your therapist may suggest that you wear a brace, to support your joints and relieve the stress on your muscles. We use a combination of high-grade medical braces and professional strapping and splinting techniques to give you support exactly when and where you need it most during your treatment schedule.
What Are Custom Braces?
Braces are simply devices worn to support your joints and muscles. Properly fitted, bracing can help restrict the range of movement on joints made unstable by injury or weakened by illness.
Braces For Arthritis
We also supply custom-fitted braces for long-term use with conditions such as arthritis. We can often relieve joint pain for patients with osteoarthritis (rheumatoid arthritis) using orthopedic bracing to reduce pressure on affected joints.
Sports braces are extremely effective in stabilizing joints during recovery and enabling you to return to the sports you love with confidence. (You may have seen top tennis pros wearing knee braces in returning from injury, so they can play without risking damaging their muscles again.) A sports-related injury will require a specific type of sport brace especially made for that type of injury.
