Athletic braces are worn for two reasons – injury prevention and rehabilitation. Wearing sports bracing while training, especially with heavy weights, can prevent strain injuries such as meniscal tears by reducing lateral knee movement. Bauerfeind braces use medical grade compression to promote blood flow to the knee and protect the joints during repetitive weight lifting routines. Whether your sport is skiing, hiking or with your team on the playing field, sports bracing can protect and stabilize your back, shoulders, elbows, hands and wrists, hip, knee and ankles.
A well chosen post-operative brace provides stability and function following surgery and allows the patient to exercise for rehabilitation. Medical braces give the patient postop protection and reliable stability so they are able to, over time, restrengthen and recuperate through movement, stretching and exercise.
If you are suffering from repetitive wrist movement or arthritis, ask us about our orthopedic braces for the wrist. Depending on the cause of the inflammation or soreness, we can recommend a wrist brace to provide pain relief that takes the pressure off nerves and blood vessels and gives overall functional support. A good brace will stabilize your wrist during movement and some are individually adjustable, allowing for customized support and ergonomic comfort.
Compression therapy socks for ball or endurance sports are available for teams or individuals, providing protection for sports that involve rapid turning or jumping. The stocking’s taping zone stimulate muscles during movement, increased ankle stability, and protection for the Achilles tendon. Compression therapy socks are made of light breathable material, making them ideal for extended activity.
