Braces & Assistive Devices

At Vaughan Chiropractic, we offer medical grade (usually covered by extended health benefits) to ensure you are getting the support that you need. After your assessment, Dr. Amar determines which brace(s) you can benefit from and fits you for the prescribed brace(s). She also does the fitting for them once they are received. Please refer to the various braces that are the most commonly purchased by our patients:

Medical-grade braces come in various types and serve different purposes depending on the condition they are designed to address:

  • Hinged Knee Brace: Provides stability and support for injured or weak knees, commonly used after ligament injuries like ACL tears or during post-operative rehabilitation.
  • Patellar Stabilizing Brace: Specifically designed to stabilize the kneecap and alleviate pain associated with conditions like patellar tendonitis or patellofemoral pain syndrome.
  • Unloader Knee Brace: Alleviates pain and pressure on specific areas of the knee affected by conditions like osteoarthritis, by redistributing weight and reducing joint friction.
  • Lace-Up Ankle Brace: Offers moderate support for ankle sprains and instability by restricting excessive movement.
  • Figure-8 Ankle Brace: Provides additional support for severe ankle sprains or chronic instability by wrapping around the ankle in a figure-eight pattern.
  • Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO): Used for conditions like drop foot or ankle weakness to provide support and maintain proper foot positioning.

 

  • Lumbar Support Brace: Offers support and stability for the lower back, commonly used for conditions like lumbar strains, herniated discs, or degenerative disc disease.
  • TLSO (Thoracolumbosacral Orthosis): Provides rigid support for the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine, often prescribed for spinal fractures, scoliosis, or post-surgery immobilization.
  •  
  • Carpal Tunnel Brace: Designed to alleviate symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome by immobilizing the wrist and keeping it in a neutral position to reduce pressure on the median nerve.
  • Wrist Splint: Provides support and immobilization for wrist sprains, strains, or tendonitis by restricting movement and promoting healing.
  • Tennis Elbow Brace (Epicondylitis Strap): Relieves pain and pressure on the outer elbow caused by conditions like lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) or repetitive strain injuries.
  • Elbow Immobilizer: Used to immobilize and support the elbow joint after fractures, dislocations, or surgery to promote healing and prevent further injury.

Support braces, also known as orthopedic braces or orthoses, are medical devices designed to provide support, stability, and sometimes alignment to various parts of the body. They are commonly used for both injury rehabilitation and prevention, as well as to manage certain medical conditions.

It’s important to note that while support braces offer numerous benefits, they are not a one-size-fits-all solution. Proper consultation with a healthcare professional, such as a physician or physical therapist, is crucial to determine whether a brace is appropriate for a specific condition, injury, or situation. An improperly used brace could potentially cause more harm than good.

Investing in high-quality pillows is important for several reasons, as the quality of your pillows can greatly impact your sleep quality, overall health, and comfort.
Imagine sinking into a pillow that understands you – your contours, your pressure points, your preferred sleep position. With a head leveler pillow, you’re not just getting a pillow; you’re getting a sleep upgrade that transforms restless nights into rejuvenating slumber. Say goodbye to waking up with aches and hello to mornings filled with vitality.

Here are 5  reasons why you should consider getting high-quality pillows:

1. Sleep Quality

A high-quality pillow is designed to provide proper support and alignment for your head, neck, and spine while you sleep. This can help you maintain a more comfortable and restful sleep posture, leading to better sleep quality and reduced chances of waking up with stiffness or discomfort.

2. Neck and Spine Alignment

The right pillow can help maintain the natural curvature of your spine and keep your neck properly aligned. Poor pillow support can lead to neck pain, headaches, and even contribute to long-term spinal issues.

3. Pain Prevention

High-quality pillows can help prevent and alleviate various types of pain, including neck pain, shoulder pain, and back pain. They provide the necessary support to cushion pressure points and prevent strain on sensitive areas.

4. Restful Sleep

With proper support and comfort, you’re more likely to experience deeper and more restful sleep. This can lead to improved cognitive function, mood, and overall well-being.

5. Long-Term Cost Savings

While high-quality pillows may have a higher upfront cost, their durability and benefits can save you money in the long run. You’re less likely to need frequent replacements, which can add up over time if you continually purchase lower-quality pillows.

Award Winning Chiropractic Care

We believe that health exists when every part of your body is functioning properly. True health occurs when your brain can communicate, uninterrupted, with the rest of your body, tell it what to do, and when to do it. While the resolution of health is typically regarded as something that requires treatment or therapy from the outside in, we recognize that the best treatment is enabling the body to health itself – from the inside-out.
