Orthopedic Bracing Q & A

What are orthopedic braces?

Orthopedic braces are supportive devices that are used in many types of medical treatments to reduce stress and strain on joints and other tissues that have been injured or weakened by disease. By providing ongoing support for both acute and chronic issues, braces help tissues heal faster and can also aid in improving mobility for better quality of life.

What types of issues can orthopedic bracing treat?

Orthopedic braces and supports can be used to treat many types of injuries and conditions including arthritis, tendonitis, ligament sprains, overuse and repetitive use injuries, scoliosis, and other issues affecting the back, neck, arms, and legs.

What kinds of bracing products does Orange County Pain & Rehab offer?

The practice has established long-term vendor relationships with nationwide suppliers of custom braces to help ensure every patient who comes in for treatment has access to the broadest array of treatment options. Each supportive device the office provides is custom-made for individual patient needs and body types for optimal results and a comfortable fit.

How can I tell which type of brace is right for my needs?

Before a patient wears any type of brace, including an over-the-counter product from a drugstore or online supplier, it is vitally important to be evaluated by a licensed doctor who specializes in musculoskeletal injuries, diseases, and conditions to ensure the proper type of support is achieved. Using a support without such medical guidance can wind up making the problem much worse and it can even cause some serious conditions to go undiagnosed until irreversible damage occurs. At Orange County Pain & Rehab Clinic, the doctor uses advanced diagnostic techniques and hands-on osteopathic manipulation to determine the cause of pain and other symptoms so the correct brace or supportive device can be prescribed for each patient’s needs.
