Braces and splints are specifically designed devices that safely support the injured area during the healing process. They are specifically designed to provide support and compression to the affected area and may also limit the range of movement,
Choosing the right brace depends strongly on the affected area (knee, wrist, ankle etc) and the severity of the injury. Usually bracing will be more effective in treating mild to moderate injuries and can also be used in post-operative care. Cam Walker Boots are used for lower limb fractures and bone stress injuries and allow weight bearing during recovery.
