Benefits of Bracing
Bracing can increase joint stability, improve alignment and reduce excessive movements (such as bending, twisting or side to side and front to back actions) that can aggravate the injury, cause pain and prevent proper healing. Braces help off load pressure, absorbing some of the force encountered from a return to activity.
