SPINAL BRACES & SUPPORTS
Bracing and supports can be a very helpful component to a treatment plan. It is important to speak to your physician to determine if a brace may or may not be helpful. As a general rule, most spinal support braces can be worn for specific functional activities varying in time and frequency. For example, a LSO (lumbo-sacral-orthosis) brace is often helpful for mechanical low back pain to be worn 2-3 hours per day during house. This brace serves to remind the user to be cautious with activities and provides muscular support and warmth. Knee braces and supports can help with arthritis pain and in many cases instablity of the knee. We also endorse a new hip joint brace to reduce joint pressure and pain. Elbow and wrist braces and supports can help with arthritic conditions, tendonitis and overuse conditions.
Like most treatments, if used correctly under the direction of medical experts, these devices can be an excellent component to an orthopedic and spinal treatment program. Please consult your physician for further information. The braces presented here are just a few examples of many supportive devices available. Cost, convenience and comfort are keys to selecting the correct brace.
