Types of Orthopedic Braces
Purpose & Uses
Braces are orthopedic appliances, worn on the body, that are used to change and / or control the biomechanical forces of your limbs and spine. The purpose of orthopedic or medical braces is to assist in the healing process of certain parts of the body. They ensure that a joint is unable to move beyond a certain range of motion, or in some cases at all, to allow all connective tissues to get the chance to heal properly. Some braces allow you to retain use of your muscles for reasonable movement and exercise. Orthopedic braces serve a large number of purposes, depending on which part of your body needs assistance in healing.
Braces can be used for the treatment of a number of symptoms and disorders such as:
- ACL knee injury
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Simple strain or deep sprain
- Post Operative
- + Many others
