Orthopedic braces can be helpful for the pain and immobility associated with arthritis. They are used to reduce the effect of arthritis, so you can gain back your freedom and enjoy life to its fullest. There are several ways that orthopedic braces help:
- Support– Arthritis often makes your joints weaker which can result in ligament weakness as well. With an orthopedic brace reducing the weight being transmitted to the knee, your pain can be reduced.
- Pressure– By putting less pressure on your knees through the use of orthopedic braces, the irritation and swelling can be reduced.
- Warmth and compression– By providing both warmth and compression to the arthritic joint, it can relax which can reduce swelling and pain severity.
- Overall health– When you regain mobility and can be more active, the rest of your body benefits from the extra physical activity.
Whether you would like to enjoy these benefits for an arthritic condition or you have another condition that can benefit from orthopedic braces, reach out to us to schedule an appointment to learn more. We are happy to perform an evaluation and then go over what options are available for your situation.
