Braces come in many variations. However, the main objective of each type remains the same: to assist the injured body part with steadiness, which, as a result, helps to both reduce pain and heal the wounded limb or joint.
Furthermore, braces are typically used for injuries that are the result of sporting activities or doing certain physical tasks that have resulted in strained muscles. More often than not, braces come in two main classifications: over-the-counter braces and custom-made braces.
And here at Panther Sports Medicine, we provide both variations.
Over-the-counter braces are offered at all of our Calgary locations. There are small, medium, large, and versatile options available as well as adjustable pieces that are also in stock. Typically, over-the-counter braces are the more affordable option.
At Panther Sports Medicine, we also offer custom-made braces. Our knowledgeable and experienced team of physiotherapists will run a sequence of calculations and deliver the results to the manufacturer to produce a custom brace personalized for your specific needs.
This process can usually take anywhere from 10 days to 2 weeks. Once your customized brace arrives at our office, our team will then contact you to schedule an appointment to ensure the brace is a perfect fit.
Due to this process, custom-made braces typically come with a higher price point than over-the-counter braces.
Have you been experiencing excessive foot, heel, leg, or ankle pain? If so, there is a simple solution available for your alleviation. Orthotics could be the ideal solution to this incessantly painful problem.
Orthotics are shoe inserts that help to relieve foot pain. This is accomplished due to the soft and protective orthotic fabric providing support to the irregular movement of your foot.
This useful product offers plenty of utility as it can be used in everything from construction boots and cleets, all the way to skates and dress shoes. As such, they are not only effective but can be used in a wide range of applications.
It can be easy to underestimate how functional orthotics can be until you try them for yourself. For this reason, if you’re someone who lives an active lifestyle, or maybe you’re just on your feet all day at work – orthotics can potentially alleviate a great deal of pain associated with putting your feet through that kind of abuse.
Panther Sports Medicine strives to ensure each one of our locations is properly equipped to handle your needs. For this reason, we house a myriad of health care products that are readily available. Moreover, some of these products are used in conjunction with many of the physiotherapy exercises we teach.
You can use these products – in addition to the exercises you learn – to expedite the recovery process. Some of our products included are by no means limited to:
- Lumbar rolls
- Ice packs
- Foam rollers
- Taping supplies
- Sacroiliac belts, and more
