Osteoarthritis and lower body injuries such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), medial cruciate ligament(MCL), and more can not only cause pain, but also limit your mobility and possibly stop you from participating in the activities you love. The good news is that there are many treatment options available to help restore your quality of life.
When you need pain relief from debilitating lower body injuries or osteoarthritis, call Stride Orthotics & Rehab for custom-fitted knee braces that will reduce pain and restore mobility.
Once you and your doctor have come to the decision that a custom brace is an appropriate option, it is time to make your appointment! During your assessment we take the time to recommend the right brace for your specific needs, and ensure your brace is optimally fitted to bring you the most pain free experience possible.
Custom Ligament Knee Braces
If you experience lower body pain, and have been diagnosed with an ACL, MCL, or other ligament or combined injuries, a custom ligament brace can significantly reduce pain, provide stability, and give you confidence while performing your sport.
Custom braces allow for comfort, as well as optimal knee support, and a reduction in skin irritation. Whether you are an elite athlete or weekend warrior, a ligament brace will provide you the support and comfort you need to return to play and can reduce your risk of re-injury. Brace selection is based on your diagnosis, body type, and level of play.
There are a variety of colours to choose from, and accessory options to accommodate your sport’s requirements for the use of a brace in your sport.
Unloading Knee Braces for Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is a chronic degenerative disease that leads to the loss of cartilage in your joints. Cartilage acts as a buffer between your bones and as it breaks down, your bones may begin to rub against one another.
This can lead to joint pain, swelling, mobility issues, and a decrease in physical activity.
To help our patients diagnosed with osteoarthritis become pain free and get back doing the activities they love, we recommend custom unloading braces. These streamlined, non-invasive knee braces contain a 3-point leverage system to unload the affected side of the knee joint to improve function and reduce pain. Lightweight unloading braces are perfect to treat mild to severe uni-compartmental osteoarthritis and come in a variety of colours.
Use knee braces to help alleviate pain from:
- ACL, MCL, LCL, PCL, rotary, and combined instabilities
- And much more!
