What is an orthopedic brace?
Orthopedic braces are special devices that are designed to help with musculoskeletal issues. They aid in improving alignment, position correcting, supporting, stabilizing, and protecting parts of a person’s body as it heals from trauma or an injury. Muscles, joints, and bones can benefit from orthopedic braces if they’ve been hurt.
What conditions can an orthopedic brace correct/improve?
Orthopedic braces at Kinetesis Spine & Joint Clinic can correct and improve many different painful conditions. Back supports, shoulder supports, ankle and foot supports, knee supports, hip and thigh supports, and wrist-forearm splint/supports are a few types of braces that can be given to a patient to help them maintain stability, posture, and control as they heal.
Some conditions an orthopedic brace can help with are as follows:
- Pulled muscles
- Dislocated joints
- Broken bones
- Weakening of bones and tissues as a person ages
- Injuries received as the result of a car accident or work related incident
Many athletes can benefit from the support of an orthopedic brace. It can help to protect them from sustaining further injuries during sports activities, and it also decreases unwanted movement of the limb or joint while they are actually on the court or field.
