Lower Extremity Bracing

A foot, knee or ankle brace can be worn for a variety of reasons. One of the most popular reasons often involves a painful injury. Others choose to wear a knee brace to prevent an injury as is the case in many sports like weight lifting or running. Utilizing a brace gives much needed support to joints that have become uneven or unstable due to an injury, illness or chronic condition.

Knee Braces

Choosing the right kind of Knee Brace is very important. A well fitted Knee Brace can aid in proper joint alignment and support the knee and surrounding joints. Knee Braces gently restrict the range of movement in the unstable joint.

Various types of Knee Braces include:

  • Prophylactic: These Knee Braces help the wearer to prevent injury during contact sports like football.
  • Functional: These Knee Braces are worn by those who have already suffered an injury.
  • Rehabilitative: This category of Knee Brace is worn to limit movement in those who have suffered an injury or are recovering from a surgery.
  • Unloader or Offloader: This Knee Brace helps to relieve pain and inflammation in those with arthritis in the knees.

Ankle and Foot Braces

An active person averages 7,500 steps per day which means that over a lifetime, a person can put in over 2 billion steps. That's a lot of opportunities for twisted ankles and over-stressed tendons. Your ankles and feet are an important part of everyday movement because they support the weight of your entire body. They are prone to overuse injuries as well as ankle or foot pain from incorrect posture. A foot and Ankle Brace is an assistive and/or protective device made of stretchy or stiff fabric that features metal or plastic supports. Some foot and Ankle Braces are pulled on while others lace up or use Velcro straps.
