Injury & Post-Surgical Support and Stabilization
Injury & Post-Surgical Support/Stabilization
When you’re suffering from an injury and need post-surgical support or stabilization, you should consider bracing. When used in conjunction with other treatments, bracing can be extremely helpful in the overall recovery process. GeriMedical wants to make sure that all patients get the care they need, which is why we carry a number of bracing options to help with your injury and post-surgical support. What’s more, we can help provide and bill your insurance for the brace. Depending on your specific injury or post-surgical needs, we offer a variety of braces.
Types of Braces
We offer several knee braces and each type serves a different purpose. Some knee braces are meant to immobilize, some are designed for support, and others provide compression. Bracing can be a great form of treatment for a torn ACL. If you have suffered an ankle injury or had surgery, there are braces available for that as well.
In addition to knee braces, we also carry back braces. There are many types of back injuries that might require various types of back braces. One of the most common causes of back pain is straining or spraining the muscles or connective tissues in the lower back. There are some braces that offer support to prevent these injuries through the promotion of using proper form when lifting. Other types of back braces are designed to help with posture issues, back problems due to pregnancy, and any other back issues caused by carrying excess weight. GeriMedical also carries braces that are meant for post-operative use. These braces are built to immobilize or restrict movement after a major surgery.
There are also braces available for the different parts of the arm including the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, and so on. Some of the reasons to use a brace for the upper extremities include shoulder dislocation, carpal tunnel, wrist fractures, and more.
Please keep in mind that all braces are not created equal, meaning that they are not all designed for the same purposes. It is imperative that you work with a healthcare professional to determine what type of brace is best for your needs. GeriMedical in Houston, TX is here to assist with all your bracing needs.
