Ankle Braces & Ankle Walkers
Stepping on an uneven crack on the sidewalk is all it takes to roll or twist an ankle. Icing, heating, and resting are some of the best treatments for a recently injured ankle. An ankle brace is recommended for those who don't have the time to ensure proper healing. Ankle braces are fitted garments worn around the ankle to protect it from reoccurring injury and immobilization while in the healing process. There are certain situations that require extra foot support. For example, if you’ve experienced an ankle fracture, it can take quite some time to heal. Even after you’ve had a surgical procedure, there will be a recovery period that follows. Fortunately, there are various orthopedic braces available to help deal with this, like ankle walkers. This is especially helpful when you need to restrict the load on the affected ankle. If you end up having surgery, immobilization is often a critical aspect of the recovery process.
Speaking of surgery, another product that might be beneficial after a serious procedure is a pair of post-operative shoes. Some of the conditions that might call for post-op shoes include bunions, arthritis, hammertoe surgery, cyst excision, bone spur removal, and more. It allows you to perform the limited amount of movement permitted by your surgeon. Your foot is kept in place with a rigid heel counter and ankle strap. You should always consult with your physician about which orthopedic brace will suit you best.
Another part of your body that plays a significant role in every day living are your hands. Injuring a wrist is one of the most inconvenient injuries because of the amount of use our hands get. However, similar to ankle braces, wrist braces were designed to allow users to continue to use their hands without re-injuring the wrist. As a garment worn around the wrist for protection during extensive use, the healing process can continue on schedule. Wrist braces are often used during rehabilitation processes to speed up the recovery. Using compression and heat, wrist braces protect and cater to the bones and ligaments around the wrist. This way, the wrist can heal correctly.
ADA Medical Supply also offers braces for knee injuries as well! Whether you've recently tweaked a knee from a wrong step or severely injured your knee from athletic sports, knee braces are a key component to ensuring a proper recovery. Knee braces are also used as pre-injury treatment! Many wear knee braces during athletic sports or high-impact activities to help support the knee and prevent injury from occurring from the beginning. Similar to both ankle and wrist braces, knee braces keep compression and heat on the bones and surrounding joints while limiting mobility for proper healing.
Back & Abdomen Supports
When you’re looking for an orthopedic brace that’ll offer maximum back support, there are plenty of options to choose from. In addition to providing support, these braces are also used to relieve back pain. The purpose of this type of orthopedic brace is to support the muscles and bones in your lower back as well as minimize your pain levels. Many people choose to wear a back brace in an effort to improve their posture. Make sure to exercise caution with long-term use as you can eventually become reliant on your brace. You also don’t want your spine to become vulnerable.
As for abdomen support, there are many reasons why you might need to invest in an orthopedic brace. Whether you need secondary lumbar support or you need your surgical drainage tubes to be held in place, you should consider an abdominal binder. It’s also used by women after a cesarean section, hysterectomy, and so on. It can even benefit those who have experienced a spinal cord injury and need proper abdominal support, improved respiratory function, and a way to maintain abdominal pressure. This can help decrease post-operative pain as well as psychological distress. For some people, it helps promote deep breathing.
Neck Braces & Supports
You might be surprised to learn that one of the most common health problems in our country is neck pain. There are many different reasons why you might be experiencing neck pain. As a result, there is a range of different treatment options. You might use a neck brace for pain relief, after sustaining a spinal neck injury, or if you’ve been in a serious accident. This orthopedic brace is used temporarily to help you heal and relieve pain. Oftentimes, you’ll need to wear a neck brace continuously for the duration of your recovery period.
