After sustaining a knee injury you could find yourself unable to move without pain. A custom knee brace can offer support and help speed up your recovery process. When you visit our York clinic, our trusted staff of physiotherapists will diagnose your injury and determine the right treatment involving a customized biomechanical device (brace). Knee injuries are quite painful but with our professional intervention, you will be able to move freely without experiencing any discomfort.
Custom knee braces for ultimate recovery
Our York clinic offers custom knee braces and rehabilitation to get you moving freely without excruciating pain. The knee braces we offer are customized to ensure proper fit and comfort. There are knee braces available at the pharmacy but they are crafted in a one-size-fits-all manner.
The recovery process following a knee injury can be painful if you do not wear the proper knee brace. When you do not get fitted for a custom knee brace you run the risk of hindering your recovery and re-injuring yourself. Our custom knee braces are slim and can be worn under pants. They come in a variety of colours and fit to the exact specifications of your leg.
Are there different types of braces?
Knee braces, even when they are customized, come in three distinct categories. Each is created with comfort, stability and safety in mind to ensure the knee is supported with every movement you make.
- Patellofemoral brace
The patella (kneecap) is held in place by a durable strap on this type of brace. Patellofemoral braces ensure that the kneecap is protected and does not shift into improper positioning.
- Functional brace
A functional knee brace is for those who have suffered a sports injury. Functional braces are worn post-surgery to help with your recovery by protecting the ligaments of the knee.
- Unloader brace
This type of brace is designed to treat joint pain and provide stability. Unloader knee braces have hinges on them to support the joint while reducing the friction caused by movement.
Once our team has diagnosed your injury and discussed your recovery plan, you will be fitted for your custom knee brace. The category of brace you receive will depend on different factors such as the type of injury you’ve sustained (ligament strain, osteoarthritis, general knee pain, meniscus damage etc.) and the level of activity you are looking to perform (running, walking, sports etc.).
