Body Braces

Most back support braces today will have a compression in them that pulls the back brace to give you a very snug fit all around you. Many back injuries or back conditions end up in a revolving circle of inflammation and muscle spasm due to an acute injury or a chronic condition that flare up.

The causes of back pain are varied, because of the anatomy and function demanded of our spinal column.
Bracing is a good choice for conservative treatment. When there is back pain regardless of what the cause of it is, the reaction of the musculature is to contract into involuntary spasm or voluntary contraction of the muscles so they protect the injured or inflamed joint and soft tissue. The muscles often go into “overdrive” with good intentions of protecting the spine.

Using a back support brace, it allows the core muscles that are supporting the spine to relax and not be in “overdrive – protection mode“. You are able to get up from sitting or lying down and move around more than you would with a back spasm that would hinder your movement.

There are many types of back support braces on the market today: good quality, bad quality, expensive ones, inexpensive ones, braces for different parts of the back: mid-spine and lower lumbar, tailbone or sacrum.
There are also many different designs that are using different materials such as elastic, soft plastic, hard plastic metal, velcro and laces.

Elbow Braces

What can you expect from elbow brace/support? Do you play golf? How about tennis? Do you partake in activities that require heavy lifting and repetitive movements at the elbow joint? Elbow support can be great at preventing elbow tendinitis as well as to help heal acute symptoms of repetitive elbow injuries. Elbow braces are equipped with strong compression and extra padding to insure stability and proper support at the joint. When used as a preventive measure, it will reduce the risk of injury or re-injury.

Some of the common reasons for elbow brace/support use are:

  • Chronic pain as Elbow Tendinitis or Bursitis
  • Sport or over-use related injuries such as strains and sprains
  • Post-operative support and proper immobilization
  • General pain relief

Our elbow support comes in exact sizes. You must be measured to ensure that we get you the best fit possible.

Foot and Ankle Braces

Foot & Ankle braces are made for chronic or acute ankle sprains, injures and edema at the ankle joint as well as foot conditions such as achilles tendinitis. They provide compression and stabilization at the joint, and the soft tissue around foot and ankle. The compression will help bring down inflammation and speed up recovery time.

Ankle braces are made up of a combination of soft and rigid materials. In case of injury a rigid support may be the best option.

For chronic/repetitive ankle sprain and Achilles Tendinitis, a combination brace can be used daily as a preventative measure to heal acute pain.

All ankle supports that are sold in our office need to be properly measured in order to provide the best fit and support. All professional braces that we sell are costly. If you chose to have it covered by your insurance plan, we recommend having it pre-approved first.

We will require a doctor’s prescription for all medically necessary support braces.

At our office we sell only medical grade braces.

Hand and Wrist Braces

Hand and wrist braces come in an exact size to apply pressure and immobilize a wrist which is sometimes totally necessary after injury to help the rehabilitation process of the effected wrist. This provides proper compression and will help heal the ligaments and bones.

Wrist braces are made up of a combination of soft and ridged materials. You may need more ridged stability after injury, and need to wear a brace that will immobilize unnecessary movement at the wrist joint.

Conditions such as wrist tendinitis, also known as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, will benefit from daily use of wrist support along with good compression and some restriction in mobility at the wrist joint. When your daily activity require lots of heavy lifting and repetitive movement at the wrist such as typing and patient care you may want to consult with your doctor on wearing wrist support as a preventive measure.

To get proper wrist brace/support you need to be measured and properly fit. It must be snug and comfortable. It should be able to apply enough pressure and control stability without causing pain.
