Orthopedic braces are medical devices designed to address musculoskeletal issues; they are used to properly align, correct the position, support, stabilize, and protect certain parts of the body (particularly the muscles, joints, and bones) as they heal from injury or trauma. These medical devices are often prescribed for the patient to wear during the process of recovery and rehabilitation. Orthopaedic braces can be used in various ways. They can be prescribed to stop limbs, specific segments of the body, or joints from moving for a pre-determined period. This can be very important in facilitating proper recovery and positioning as the affected body part heals. Braces are often recommended for restricting and assisting general movement, removing weight from healing or injured joints and muscles, and correcting the shape and function to reduce pain and facilitate improved mobility. Patients who have suffered from fractures or broken bones can also be prescribed orthopaedic braces to aid in musculoskeletal rehabilitation. A qualified medical professional can determine what type of orthopedic brace is ideal for the patient, as well as the fit, type of support, function, and level of stability or protection. Our health centre works with you and your medical professional to determine the level of stability, type of support, function and fit that the orthopedic brace should provide. We recommend the best brace for you. For best results, wearing orthopedic braces or support is often recommended as a part of an overall treatment plan with our physical therapists.


Procedures for orthopedic braces all begin similarly. A primary care physician will refer the patient to us to have the proper braces fitted according to whatever is required by the patient’s treatment plan. Our health centre and primary care physician will also recommend a specific period of time for the patient to wear the braces. We are not following the doctor’s instructions or wearing orthopaedic braces without proper prescription can result to further injuries or risk to the patient.


To get orthopedic braces to manage an injury or ailment, you have to get a doctor referral letter from your family doctor, and then visit our office for a thorough health history and orthopedic examination. Once the initial assessment is completed, a specific type of braces can then be recommended. Precise measurements can then be taken in order to make a proper brace. United MediCenter will work with you and your medical professional to decide the level of stability, type of support, functions and fit, that the orthopedic braces should provide. We will always recommend the best braces for you.
