Custom orthotics are specially made medical devices that are designed to be worn inside your shoes. READ MORE
Whether you’re recovering from an injury or need additional support during high stress activity, custom bracing is one of the most effective ways to address pain or weakness in a variety of areas, including the ankles, knees, wrists, elbows and even shoulders. While off-the-shelf braces can be effective, custom braces provide a higher degree of support. They are designed specifically for you based on your body’s unique requirements and provide a precise fit that “unloads” pain-inducing areas, alleviates pressure and improves functional movements such as running, bending and climbing stairs.
If you’re suffering from any of the following, custom bracing may be the solution for you:
- Repetitive strain injuries, including tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome
- Shoulder dislocation
- Knee and ankle injuries
It’s also highly recommended for post-operative recovery, osteoarthritis and ligament tears. Not only will it allow you to heal faster so you can get back to your daily activities, in the case of an ACL tear, for example, it can also help to limit damage to surrounding areas while you heal.
While custom bracing is more expensive than off-the-shelf options, many insurance plans cover their cost and the impact they have can be significant; so we strongly encourage patients to check with their insurance provider.
At Physiomed, we work with only the very best custom bracing suppliers and are pleased to provide these solutions for patients in Toronto and the surrounding regions. So, whether you’re a recovering athlete or a senior with arthritis, Physiomed can help you train, play and live with confidence.
