Braces are designed to provide structural support, stability, and corrective assistance to the musculoskeletal system.  They can be a good complement to rehabilitation, because it helps to restrict movements that can make your injury worse. They are most common for treating injuries such as:

Choosing the Right Brace

Before selecting a brace, it is crucial to consult with a therapist who can assess your injury and recommend the appropriate brace for your condition. One decision is between custom and off-the-shelf braces, which depends on several factors, including: budget, injury, time sensitivity, and body size. See below for a comparison of the two.

Custom-Made Braces:

Custom-made braces are fabricated based on precise measurements taken. They are made to address specific dysfunctions such as post-surgical. Because they are custom-made, the brace provides advanced support for joint instabilities, and is often preferable for return-to-sports.

    • Pros:
      • Precision Fit: Custom braces are tailored to your unique anatomy, ensuring a precise fit for optimal support and comfort.
      • Condition-Specific: They can be designed to address specific conditions or injuries, maximizing their effectiveness.
    • Cons:
      • Cost: Custom-made braces can be more expensive due to the individualized design and fitting process. However, they are covered by most extended health insurance plans.
      • Lead Time: They may take longer to manufacture and receive, which can be a drawback in cases where immediate support is required.

Off-the-Shelf Braces:

    • Pros:
      • Cost-Effective: Off-the-shelf braces are generally more budget-friendly and readily available.
      • Immediate Use: They can be purchased and used right away, providing quick relief and support.
      • Standard Conditions: Many common injuries and conditions can be effectively managed with off-the-shelf braces.
    • Cons:
      • Limited Customization: These braces may not offer a perfect fit and may not address unique anatomical features or conditions.

Selecting the right brace is a crucial step in your journey to recovery and comfort, and the guidance of a Sheddon therapist can help you in this process.
