Braces at Raynen Therapies can be “custom made” or “off the shelf” depending on which is the most appropriate choice for your condition. A brace is usually recommended as a temporary device use to decrease the stress imparted on the injured area. Once the injury has been treated and is not causing pain or any movement/strength limitations, the brace can be removed. Sometimes the brace will be used to prevent a reoccurrence of a serious injury. This would mean that the brace would be used for specific activities such as playing sports. Braces can be used for most joints in the body including the back, ankle, knee, wrist, hand and elbow joint. Visit Raynen Therapies to get professional advice on braces as there are many types for the same body part, depending on the condition, so it is important to get the one that is most suited to your condition.
