If You're in Need of Supports & Braces to Help the Healing, The Apothecary Shoppe Has You Covered
Braces designed for immobilizing and compressing muscles and joints are often made from nylon and neoprene and can be fastened tightly into place by Velcro straps. Orthopedic braces are generally divided into two categories, depending on the location of its application: upper and lower limb. Braces on the upper limb can be applied to the shoulders, collarbones, the arms, elbows, wrists, hands, and fingers. Lower limb braces, on the other hand, can be fitted over the feet, ankles, knees, and legs. Supports and Braces can be prescribed to stop limbs, specific segments of the body, or joints from moving for a pre-determined period. This can be very important in facilitating proper recovery and positioning as the affected body part heals. Supports and Braces are often recommended for restricting and assisting general movement, removing weight from healing or injured joints and muscles, as well as correcting the shape and function to reduce pain and facilitate improved mobility.
The Apothecary Shoppe Pharmacy carries a wide variety of Supports and Braces including but not limited to:
A mere glance at the sports section of the newspaper or social media page reveals the wide array of injuries that plague athletes as they participate in what they do best. In order to perform at their best, athletes should be concerned with keeping their bodies healthy as they are about regular training. Wearing sports braces is important for athletes because they keep our joints moving naturally. They help to prevent injury and also provide added support and stabilization for individuals who have sustained previous injuries. In fact, many professional athletes wear braces for sports to help protect their body from season-ending injuries. Using sports braces is just as important for recreational athletes as it is for professional athletes. Even non-contact sports can put you at risk for injury, especially if it involves running!
