Where to Buy a Brace in Barrie

Shoulder Bracing - When grappling with shoulder pain or swelling, shoulder braces can significantly help. These braces stabilize your shoulder joints and give extra support when using or moving your shoulder. They're handy if you have conditions like a rotator cuff tear or arthritis or if your shoulder feels like it is about to pop out.

Ankle Bracing - If you're having ankle pain, swelling, or feeling unsteady on your feet, using ankle braces can help. They work by supporting and stabilizing your ankle and can also help prevent further injury.

Foot Orthotics - A foot orthotic is a special insole tailored to fit your feet and can be put into your shoes to give your feet extra support and help you stand straighter. If you have flat feet, constantly feel pains in the foot while you walk or exercise, or grapple with plantar fasciitis, these orthotics can really come in handy for you.

Air Cast Boot - The Air Cast Boot, also known as an Air Walker or Walking Cast, is a medical device used to immobilize and support the foot and ankle following surgical treatment or when there is a need to manage ankle sprains, fractures, or Achilles tendonitis. It is an orthopedic cast with an air bladder system that allows you to control the level of compression and support. The air bladder system also aids in accelerating healing and controlling edema.

Low Back Bracing - Low-back braces can be handy for symptoms like lower back pain, herniated discs, or sciatica. These devices can reduce pain, support, and help you maintain good posture.

Elbow Bracing - An elbow brace can be helpful for someone experiencing symptoms such as tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, and arthritis. They can reduce pain and inflammation and provide you with not only joint support but also enhanced mobility.

Wrist Bracing - A wrist brace, a medical device specially created for stabilizing and supporting the wrist joint, provides additional support to the wrist, alleviates pain, and improves mobility. It is primarily used to aid individuals with wrist injuries or chronic wrist conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome or arthritis.

AFO (Ankle-Foot Orthosis) - An Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AFO) is a medical device that supports and stabilizes the ankle and foot. It is typically made of a combination of materials such as plastic, metal, or carbon fiber and is worn externally. The device can help alleviate symptoms such as foot drop, instability, weakness, and difficulty walking due to neurological or musculoskeletal conditions that affect the ankle and foot.

Bracing and Common Conditions and Injuries

Braces are now valuable tools in the medical world that can offer extra support and protection to joints and muscles that are injured or weakened. However, before using braces, it's essential to consult a professional. The type of brace you choose or need will depend on the specific injury or condition, so expert guidance is necessary at this point.

At MyoDynamic Health, our experts can guide you through the entire process. Some common conditions and injuries that may require bracing include:

  • Sprains and Strains: when ligaments (sprains), muscles, or tendons (strains) are stretched or torn.
  • Arthritis: a medical condition that causes inflammation and stiffness in the joints.
  • Tendinitis: an inflammation of the tendons that connect muscles to bones.
  • Carpal Tunnel: when the median nerve, which runs through the wrist, is compressed
  • Back pains: these pains can be caused by many factors, including muscle strain, herniated discs, or spinal stenosis
  • Knee Fractures: this includes injuries such as ACL tears, MCL tears, and meniscus tears
  • Foot and Ankle Issues: injuries such as ankle sprains and plantar fasciitis can be treated with braces that provide support and reduce pain and inflammation
  • Rotator Cuff Injuries: braces can help support and stabilize the shoulder, reducing strain on the rotator cuff muscles and tendons.
  • Achilles Tendonitis: injuries commonly caused by excessive stress to the Achilles tendon
  • Post-Surgery Rehab: bracing can be used as part of a post-surgical rehabilitation program to provide support and protection for the affected area

What To Expect At Your Bracing Appointment

At your appointment, our healthcare experts will evaluate your condition and suggest a suitable bracing solution for your requirements. We will measure and create molds to ensure a comfortable fit and give you instructions on using and maintaining your brace accurately.

Additionally, our team will keep in touch to ensure that your brace is functioning well and helping you progress toward your objectives.
