Custom Braces

Custom braces can help with a wide range of injuries and medical conditions, including acute injuries that are expected to heal soon and long-term chronic conditions. The braces are custom made precisely for each individual patient for a perfect fit. A better fit means improved support and better protection. Seeing an orthopedic doctor for custom braces in Somerset, KY, is the only way to ensure you have the right type of brace with the right fit.

Some types of braces are available over-the-counter, but they cannot provide the level of support custom braces do since they are not customized. Instead, over-the-counter braces are meant to fit a wide range of sizes and can be too tight or too loose. Without the level of support provided by a precision made custom brace, injuries can take longer to heal and you might be at risk for developing additional injuries. Additionally, you might not experience the as much relief as possible from certain medical conditions, such as arthritis or spinal problems.

Injuries heal faster, the risk of sustaining additional injuries is reduced, and maximum relief from symptoms are all possible with custom braces. Custom braces can be used to treat the symptoms of many several different medical conditions, including scoliosis, degenerative disc disorder, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis. Custom braces can also be used to treat many other types of conditions and injuries, including:

  • Sports injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Certain foot conditions
  • Knee problems
  • Tendinitis
  • Fractures
