CUStOM KNEE BRACES IN MARKHAM

At The Physio Spot, we provide both off-the-shelf as well as custom knee bracing to decrease pain and improve movement.

CUSTOM KNEE BRACING IN MARKHAM

We carry off-the-shelf braces for many different injuries and body parts.  If we don’t have the brace you need, we’ll measure, order and fit one for you in a timely manner.  Occasionally, there are some circumstances when a Custom Brace is recommended.  


For custom bracing, we offer knee braces for Ligamentous Knee Injuries (ACL, PCL, MCL) and for Osteoarthritis of the knee.


These braces can be used post-operatively to help assist in the regeneration and remodelling phases of healing.   Basically, it’s a way to help optimize recovery, rehabilitation and return to your activities.  

In people with chronic knee pain due to arthritis (Osteoarthritis), custom knee braces can be measured and fit to unload the pain-inducing areas of your knee.  This will help you improve your movement, decrease pain and help improve your functional movements, like walking, taking stairs, bending down to pick something up.   


Custom Knee Braces are recommended for moderate to severe cases of:


  • Ligamentous Knee Injuries (ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL) 
  • Osteoarthritis (Knee OA)


Off the Shelf Braces are recommended for mild to moderate cases of:


  • Ankle Sprains
  • Ligamentous Knee Injuries (ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL)
  • Osteoarthritis (Knee, Thumb) 
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shoulder Dislocations
  • Tennis and golfers' elbow
  • Various knee injuries (i.e. Patellofemoral syndrome, jumper's knee, Osgood- Schlatter’s Disease)
