STAY ACTIVE WITH CUSTOM BRACES

Do you want to be more active this summer, but your joint pain is holding you back? A custom fitted brace can make it possible to enjoy the activities you miss. If you want to walk again without pain, or engage in your favorite sports activities, a custom-fitted brace can give you the support you need. Braces come in all shapes and sizes, fitting a variety of joints, including the spine. However, it is important to understand that generic braces are no where near as effective as a custom-fitted brace. A

custom-fitted brace is fitted exactly to your body shape and size. As we are all made differently and our needs are different, having a specialist evaluate and fit a custom brace will give your joints the exact support they need.

Custom-fitted braces from The BracePlace are used for: • Relieving knee pain and providing support with walking or sports • Providing ankle support , which is especially important after injury • Low back pain to allow freedom of movement while providing support • Elbow and wrist pain support for lifting activities or sports If you currently have a brace do remember that over the years, your brace will stretch out and become less effective over time. It is important to keep your brace up to date with the latest technologies and materials. Most insurances cover custom-fitted braces, so call us today at Howard Orthotics and Prosthetics, to discuss your needs and help you live a more active, pain-free lifestyle.
