Knee and Shoulder Injury Treatment

Custom Bracing and Orthotics

Braces are devices worn externally on the body to assist with the stability of a joint or reduce the physical stresses which the individual’s environment can sometimes place on their body.

Generally, braces can fall into one of two categories:

Custom Made Braces: This type of brace involves taking specific measurements of the client, and fabricating a brace which fits that client specifically. Usually because of the nature of their fabrication, there is a higher cost associated with custom made braces.

Over The Counter Braces: This type of brace is usually mass produced by a manufacturing company in various common size ranges (small, medium, large, etc). Fitting one of these braces is usually quite simple, and the cost can be significantly less than a custom made device. However, the fit and function is not as precise (usually) as a custom made brace.
Panther Sports Medicine can supply both types of braces to their patients, depending on the needs as assessed by their Physiotherapist.
