Braces & Custom Bracing
Blackfalds Physiotherapy Clinic offers custom brace fitting
Blackfalds Physiotherapy Clinic has a team of skilled therapists specifically trained in the assessment and fitting process for custom knee braces.
Custom knee braces off-load stress placed on the joint to diminish pain and stiffness. Bracing allows the patient to control the position of the joint, be it to restrict undesired or potentially harmful motion or allow desired motion. Custom braces are specifically designed for each individual patient allowing for a perfect fit and a significant reduction in symptoms.
How custom knee braces help:
When used to unload bone on the bone pressure in conditions such as osteoarthritis, custom knee braces gently apply pressure to the unaffected side of the knee, thereby relieving compression on the affected side. The force that is present in the degenerative part of the knee is greatly reduced, providing long term pain relief and often eliminating the need for surgery or medication. When used to treat ligament issues, custom knee braces stabilize and protect in a comfortable, light weight and easy to adjust construction.
