Biomechanical analysis: A study that is used to analyze your movements. It helps in the prevention of injuries as well as in performance enhancement.
Gait assessment: It is used to examine your lower limbs for treating knee, hip, and back pain. It is conducted by assessing the structure, alignment, strengths, and weaknesses of your lower limbs.
Diabetic foot assessment: It is conducted to detect any possible risk factors against peripheral neuropathy, foot ulceration, and amputation.
Pediatric foot assessment: This is conducted to check if your child is experiencing pain in walking or running. We perform pediatric foot assessments by taking into consideration the biomechanics, gait evaluation, motor, and neurological development as well as family history.
What Is the Purpose of a Knee Brace?
A knee joint is a complex part of your body, made of muscles, tendons, cartilage, and bones. Due to several reasons, parts of your knee can suffer damage. For instance, an athletic injury can dislocate a knee or become stress due to certain movements. Knee braces perform different functions to address these issues. While some knee braces can protect knees and protect them from injuries, others control pain and inflammation in already-injured ones.
If you require a knee brace for a particular purpose, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with us. In addition to knee braces, we also design personalized footwear.
Types of Knee Braces
As mentioned above, our knee braces in Kelowna perform different functions depending on your requirements. Some common types of knee braces are:
Wrap-around knee brace: Generally, this knee brace is for patellar instability, patellar dislocation, and moderate pain. It is lightweight but can hold the knee in a secure position firmly. It has metal bands that take the stress off the knee and encourage healthy healing.
Knee strap: A knee strap is commonly used for jumper's knee, patella tracking, and Osgood-Schlatter Disease. It works by applying compression to the patellar tendon, preventing further injuries while controlling the pain.
Compression knee brace: This is one of the most common types of knee braces because it is useful for preventing injuries while protecting the knee. It works by distributing your body weight in a manner that prevents additional stress on your knees.
Motion control brace: This is an excellent choice for spraining the lateral collateral ligament located on the side of the knee. It has metal supports that hold the injured ligaments in place.
Hinged knee support: This type of brace is generally for athletes recovering from damaged ligaments for added stability. It guards you against injury-causing movements while allowing you to swing your knees safely.
