Sports braces come in a range of styles and options.
If you’re an athlete, you’re probably no stranger to injuries and discomfort. No matter what type of sport you participate in, you may experience pain caused by a sudden injury or something that occurred in the past that hasn’t properly healed. Athletes in certain sports are more prone to specific injuries, but wearing the right brace can reduce the risk and protect your body. At York Foot Orthotics and Bracing, we offer a range of sports braces for athletes in and near Collingwood, Ontario. We want to help you continue to participate in the sports and activities you love while getting rid of the pain and lessening the risk of injury.
Sports braces come in a range of styles and options. A runner might wear a brace that provides extra support to their knees, which take the brunt of the weight during every step. A football player might choose a brace that provides support to their knee or ankle, depending on what feels stiff during a game. No matter what type of sports you participate in, our healthcare team can help find sports braces that provide the necessary support.
You may wonder what the difference is between the sports braces we offer and the braces you can pick up in sporting goods stores. The key difference is the customization – we can take a cast of your knee and send it to a lab for fabrication. Sports braces that are custom-fitted based on your body size and pain points provide more support and better results than one-size-fits-all units that simply can’t keep up.
