Orthotic Bracing

What are orthotic braces?

Orthotic braces are used to provide support to a weakened body part or joint. While many times they are worn for a short period of time, usually after an injury or surgery, some braces are used to address long term or chronic conditions. Some braces are used passively, other braces play a more active role in that they don’t only support but also provide a counterforce that achieves a desired outcome.

What types of conditions would you use bracing for?

You can use bracing for a wide variety of conditions from ankle sprains, strains and fractures, tendonitis, tennis and golfers elbow, immobilization for rotator cuff repairs, capsular shifts, soft tissue repairs/strains, runners knee, patellar subluxation/dislocation, arthritis, Osgood Schlatter disease, ACL, PCL, MCL and LCL instabilities and many more!

What company we use and why?

Ossur Americas is a leading company that develops, manufactures and sells non-invasive orthopaedics equipment, including bracing and support products, compression therapy, and prosthetics. Össur operates five research and development departments in four countries. They pride themselves on continuously pushing the boundaries to create some of the most effective, non-invasive mobility solutions on the market today.

How are braces covered under extended health plans?

Most extended health plans cover orthotic braces as long as you provide a prescription from your Medical Doctor.

How is a brace fitted?

Most off the shelf braces are fitted to the patient by a simple measurement while custom braces require more specific measurements. Ossur Americas has developed a smart measure app where pictures and measurements are taken of the knee and sent away for custom development.

  • After eight treatments, my hip pain was much better and continued to improve to the point, I am pain free. Thank you and sorry I was skeptical, I am now a believer!

  • When I first came here, I was steps away from a wheelchair. Dr. Fox fixed my back and now I can do they things I like to do. He showed me and my family healthy eating and healthy lifestyle. All the staff at Glenbourne Chiro are awesome!

  • After I received a shot in my neck from the doctor I still had pain so I went to my chiropractor, before long my neck was moving like before. NO PILLS NECESSARY. So there are 2 things I learned over the past one and a half years: pay your taxes, and maintain your chiropractic.

  • When I would travel by air my ears felts like they were going to explode, they would bleed and I wouldn't be able to hear for days. We recently returned from the Dominican and to my amazement I had no pain in my ears and no bleeding. It was a vacation well enjoyed. Thank you Dr. Fox.

  • I am pleased to say Dr. Fox has managed to get my back functioning in a more efficient manner with much less pain. Life is less painful and a lot more pleasant than nine months ago.

  • Dr. Fox, Dr. Peddle and their staff have helped me so much that as a patient I appreciate them more than they could ever appreciate me. I know with my whole being that if I did not have this wonderful support team, I would be in much worse shape than I am.

  • If there is anything I would change, I would have investigated Chiropractic sooner. Do yourself a favor and contact the folks at Glenbourne Chiropractic Clinic, they are truly interested in your well-being. For us, they have become part of our extended family.

  • I had issues with my sciatic nerve for years, through being adjusted I am finding that I am achieving the best results I have had in years!

  • I've found that since starting treatment at Glenbourne over a year ago, any aches and pains are non-existent. The passion and commitment with which Dr. Fox approaches each patient is contagious.

  • I no longer have pain, I continue to have regular maintenance treatments and I feel great!

  • It took Dr. Fox seconds to diagnose my neck problem and a confirming x-ray indicated serious neck issues. Within 6-9 months following a rigorous adjustment, exercise, stretching and massage program, I gained back virtually all of the range of motion in my arms and became pain free.
