BRACING

Durable Medical Equipment (DME) for Injury Recovery

Benefits of bracing

PROTECTION

Bracing an injured area minimizes, or in some cases prevents, movement that may lead to further injury. Allowing for only proper movement of the area is important to aid in recovery.

NON-INVASIVE

Bracing is a non-invasive alternative to more aggressive treatment options. Although it may be used in conjunction with more invasive procedures, bracing alone is safe and beneficial therapy.

RECOVERY

Bracing aides the recovery process by increasing support and stabilization of the injured area. By allowing for limited movement, muscle activity can continue until range of motion is restored.

BENEFITS OF KNEE BRACING

If you suffer from arthritis or other structural knee problems, a knee brace may be able to help you in your quest to stay active. Certain warm-up exercises before engaging in low-impact exercise may require a knee brace to prevent injury. One of the best exercises to address knee pain is simply to walk. Your doctor will be able to help you to decide what brace is best for your body type so that you can engage in walking or other low-impact exercises. A good knee brace is often important to keep your leg muscles and ligaments in good condition (with the appropriate footwear).

BENEFITS OF BACK BRACING

While both invasive and non-invasive therapies may be used, bracing is a common treatment for many patients suffering from back pain. Patients using a brace may reduce painful muscle tension that is a common protective reaction following an injury. Bracing will also prevent or restrict painful movements, such as twisting the spine or bending forward, backward, or to the side. Limiting painful movements and postures can also help improve awareness of the body’s positioning (proprioception), which allows the wearer to consciously adjust posture for improved back health.
