We are all likely to suffer an injury, whether as a result of overuse, trauma or following a medical condition, at some stage and bracing is simply seen as an additional treatment option to aid in your overall recovery.
Diagnosis remains essential in being able to identify which brace you need as there are a variety of options available depending on your needs, the condition you wish to manage and its severity. A brace can provide compression, stability or a combination of both – thereby allowing you to remain active for longer throughout your rehabilitation.
