Brace and Support
Why Use a Brace or Support?
A support brace helps you by:
Relieving your pain
Resting the injured tissues by taking some of the stressful loads
Protecting the injured structures from further injury
Allowing for initial tissue healing
Preventing future injury by support or joint stabilisation.
A support brace can be constructed by numerous fabrics, elastic or even alloy components. A support brace can be used in combination or instead or supporting tape or strapping. For more specific supportive brace advice applicable to your injury, please consult your physiotherapist. In some cases, a brace may delay your rehabilitation process.
