ST. PETERSBURG, FL, July 16, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Specialized knee braces and back braces are now available to speed healing from injuries at Suncoast Integrative Healthcare.
When a patient suffers an injury to the knee or the back, everyday movements can be more than just painful - they can worsen the condition, prohibiting healing or leading to long-term damage. In many cases, patients aren't able to perform simple motions such as bending over, kneeling down, or taking the stairs after such an injury occurs.
With specialized braces, these injured body parts can receive the support they need so the patient can remain mobile. Adding this stability reduces the pressure on the joints, bones, muscles and surrounding tissue, and restricts movements that could aggravate the injury. This promotes proper alignment to accelerate healing.
When a joint is unstable following an injury such as a herniated disc, overuse, or a torn ligament, bracing it reduces the risk of injuring it again. The brace serves to actually shift the weight away from injured area, helping to minimize pain and allow for the natural healing process to occur. Some braces also offer compression, helping to reduce swelling as well.
Who Needs Knee or Back Bracing?
While each patient's situation can be different and should be gone over with their doctor, many knee and back injuries can be made less painful, and healing time accelerated with the addition of specialized bracing.
Staying active despite an injury can aid in healing, so rather than being immobilized for fear of upsetting the area further, you can take positive action by getting fitted with the right brace for your needs. There are many different types of braces for the back, and for the knee, so options are available that will offer the correct level of support and stabilization for virtually any situation.
Patients who have been fitted with these braces have reported that they have been able to accomplish their daily activities with more confidence. Reducing pain is an immediate goal of these braces, while the staff works to help heal the injury through a variety of natural treatments.
