If you are experiencing pain in your feet or lower limbs, you may benefit from orthopedic braces. Our team here at York Foot Orthotics and Bracing understands that many people find it difficult to determine when a problem is serious enough to warrant medical intervention, which is why we have put together this article. In it, we’ll go over a few signs that you might need orthopedic braces—if you have noticed any of these things happening to you, we encourage you to give us a call.
- Pain or Swelling. If you are experiencing pain or swelling in your feet, legs, or leg joints after everyday activities such as standing or walking, then you have a real problem and should seek treatment. Orthopedic braces can help alleviate pain caused by a variety of conditions, and we are sure that your quality of life will improve with them.
- Balance Problems. Another sign that you may need orthopedic braces is problems with your balance or with staying upright. If you feel unsteady on your feet or like your knees are too weak to support you, you can get the stability and support you need from an orthopedic brace.
- Injury. A third situation in which you most likely need orthopedic braces is when recovering from a lower limb injury. The brace will provide structure and support for the injured limb while the broken bone, torn ligament, or strained muscles are repairing themselves. Our trained experts can recommend which type of brace is best for your needs and ensure that you get the custom fit you need for maximum support.
