Brace yourself for a fast and accurate healing process.
If you have experienced an injury or surgical procedure that requires you to keep part of your body immobile or have assisted movement during the healing process, then consider bracing therapy! Bracing involves the use of an external supportive device that helps to stabilize a joint or body part. Typically, patients have a brace fitted for them following an injury or surgery, to help support or protect the area from unwanted movement or stress.
When used properly for a certain time period, bracing can be extremely helpful at moving a patient’s healing progress along rapidly and accurately, eventually leading to full function and range of motion. Bracing heals pain by reducing mobility, interrupting the spasm cycle and promoting a better healing environment. Patients using a brace are encouraged to participate in strengthening exercises and brace therapy.
