Braces can be helpful to speed recovery from an injury, allow earlier return to sport or work, and for overall protection for recovering tissues. Our therapists are trained to analyse your specific condition and select an appropriate brace if indicated. Since different injuries can occur to the same joint in the body, it is important to understand your injury first before choosing a brace. Not every brace is effective for the same joint condition. To make sure your brace is addressing your needs, consult a therapist first.
Braces may be helpful for the following conditions:
- Ankle sprains or fractures
- Knee ligament injuries
- Patellofemoral syndrome or poor patellar tracking
- Jumper’s knee (patellar tendonitis)
- Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
- Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis)
- Elbow ligament injuries
- Wrist injuries
- Low back injuries
- And more!
Our therapists are trained to measure for custom-fitted knee braces, often prescribed by doctors.
Many braces are covered under extended health benefits plans.
