Don’t let knee injuries sideline you from your life. Let us assess you for a custom knee brace that will stabilize the knee, improve function, decrease pain and allow you to resume your everyday activities again.
A custom knee brace is a medical appliance that is made and fitted to your knee. It helps to stabilize the knee, improve function, decrease pain and allow you to resume your everyday activities again.
At Propel Physiotherapy, our registered physiotherapists have special training in the assessment and treatment of the knee, it’s biomechanics and deficits related to the knee that affect your everyday life – work, sport and recreation. Propel’s therapists will help you navigate not only your recovery journey but what devices may be appropriate for you in that journey. In certain conditions this may involve the recommendation of a custom knee brace.
IS A CUSTOM KNEE BRACE IS RIGHT FOR ME?
After a full assessment and goal setting with one of our physiotherapists at Propel recommendations and a plan of care will be made. This may involve a custom knee brace – this will be clearly communicated and all options will be discussed. The recommendation of a custom knee brace will always be in conjunction with an active rehabilitation program that is aimed at improving the flexibility and strength around the knee, allowing for optimal function while wearing the brace.
CONDITIONS APPROPRIATE FOR A KNEE BRACE
Osteoarthritis, knee instability after ligament tear with or without surgery (ACL, PCL), and reconstructive surgery after an accident are some of the conditions that may benefit from a custom knee brace. After a full assessment from one of Propel’s physiotherapists, all options can be discussed.
DOES MY INSURANCE COVER A CUSTOM KNEE BRACE?
Your insurance may cover the cost. It’s best to contact your insurance company directly and inquire about coverage and whether or not you need a doctor’s prescription. If you bring your insurance information in our support staff will be happy to help you get the answers you’re looking for.
