Knee Braces for ACL Tear 

Custom Knee Brace Barrie

If you have undergone knee surgery or sustained an injury, a custom knee brace can provide optimal support and security. MyoDynamic Clinic's experts will measure and fit you with a personalized brace to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.

A custom knee brace is specific to your leg structure and condition. Whether it is a torn ACL, Meniscus, MCL, osteoarthritis or more, our custom-designed braces will act to offload the forces in your knee and allow you to walk in a biomechanically aligned position.

When you visit MyoDynamic Health for an assessment, we will use our custom measuring device on the circumference of your thigh, calf and the angle of your knee. The brace is designed specifically to balance your weight, strength and profile. We take into account the activity level and specialized sports that our patients participate in and design their brace specific to them.

Physiotherapy For ACL Tear

After surgery, personalized treatment plans by a physiotherapist are essential for successful recovery. A customized plan of exercises and rehabilitation techniques tailored to your needs will help regain strength, mobility, and flexibility. Regular check-ins with your physiotherapist are vital to track progress and adjust the treatment plan as needed.

Gait Analysis With Pedorthist

The proper walking technique is critical to promote healing and prevent further injury. During a gait analysis, a pedorthist will evaluate your walking style and suggest modifications to your footwear or custom orthotics to correct any issues. This service is designed to improve walking comfort and safety while ensuring continued progress toward recovery.

Post-Injury ACL Treatment Protocol

Having a post-injury treatment protocol in place is crucial for a successful recovery. At MyoDynamic Clinic, our physiotherapists will create a personalized treatment plan based on your injury and progress. Below is an example of a typical post-injury treatment protocol for ACL or Meniscus injury.

Our physiotherapy treatment plan for ACL injuries typically involves various stages of recovery, as outlined below:

Physiotherapy for Knee

Week 1-2:

During the first two weeks after surgery, the focus is on reducing swelling, managing pain, and maintaining range of motion. Treatment methods may include ice therapy, compression, and gentle exercises to improve joint movement.

Week 3-4:

At this stage, the focus is on enhancing strength and stability around the knee joint. Treatment may involve exercises to strengthen the quadriceps, hamstrings, and gluteal muscles. Your physiotherapist will also work with you on balance and coordination exercises.

Week 5-6:

During this stage, the focus is on improving endurance and returning to normal activities. Treatment may include exercises to enhance cardiovascular fitness and endurance and functional movements to improve mobility and flexibility.

Week 7-8:

At this stage, the focus is on sports-specific activities and preparing for a return to sports. Treatment may involve exercises to simulate sports movements, such as jumping and landing, cutting and pivoting, and sprinting.

It is essential to note that the above treatment protocol is just an example, and every patient's recovery journey is unique. Your physiotherapist will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that suits your specific needs and goals.
