What is an Orthopedic Brace And Why You Might Need One?
An Orthopedic Brace is a device that improves the alignment of your bones or joints. They can be used to prevent a condition from getting worse or to alleviate symptoms of an existing condition. Orthopedic braces can also help prevent joint injuries from happening, which is why they should be worn when there is any risk of injury.
Braces and splints can be used to immobilize an injured joint, providing support to a weak or stiff joint, transferring weight from an injured limb to one that is not injured, and preserving a muscle’s length so it does not contract and shorten. Whether you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, have a knee injury or other ligament injuries, or have pain from previous sports injuries , using an orthopedic brace to help mend you back and ease your pain.
