With a few minor exceptions, you can brace almost every part of the body to help relieve pain, prevent injury and protect areas that have been recently injured or operated on. At New England Surgical, we have over sixty-one brace supports to choose from, all with very different design and function.
For lower body support, bracing is available for everything from you hip, thigh and knee to your ankle foot and heel. The Hip and thigh braces generally treat hamstring pulls, varicose veins, hip dysplasia and ACL injuries.
An ankle brace is one of the most common bracing options as injuries to the ankle are very common and include ankle sprains, strains, ankle instability during sports, ankle pain and weak ankles. Heel and foot bracing is a little more rare, but still needed to treat plantar fasciitis, posterior heel pain, arthritis, Achilles tendonitis and foot drop.
In your upper body, we carry bracing for the abdomen, back, arm, elbow, hand and neck. In back and abdomen supports, the most common uses are for muscle strains, scoliosis, back injuries, spinal injuries and to promote better posture.
Arm or shoulder braces treat dislocations, tendonitis, arthritis, bursitis and rotator cuff injuries while elbow braces treat tennis elbow, golfers elbow, carpal tunnel and tendonitis. Your hand supports many of the same issues that can occur in your elbow such as carpal tunnel, arthritis, tendonitis and sprains. The neck is a very important area to support with a neck brace because it is often preventing further damage to your spine or spinal cord.
