Medical equipment like braces and support devices work to help you recover and reduce potential of continued damage. At Collaborative Healthcare, we are happy to help you determine what types of braces or support devices would work best for your specific problem. The following are some of the braces and support devices we carry as a registered distributor of Durable Medical Equipment:
- Low Back Brace: This is a device that will provide you additional support and stability to your lower back and the surrounding areas. This gives you the ability to participate in activities that would normally cause pain. It can also reduce the pain you on a regular basis. The pull tabs of this brace allow you to tighten the top or bottom of the brace independently of the other, giving you a customized fit.
- Unloader Knee Brace: This knee brace is so named because it “unloads” the weight of your body away from an arthritic, painful or compressed joint. It also gives you additional stability and support of your knee joint as a whole. It can be customized to “unload” the specific amount of weight or pressure most beneficial for your individual condition.
- Cervical Collar: This medical device is designed to support postural correction. It works by reducing the tendency of your head to move forward too much in poor posture, which can lead to myofascial trigger points, neck and upper back pain and can eventually cause disc herniation and cervical disc degeneration.
- TENS Unit: This unit is applied to various areas below the head to provide rapid pain relief. Consequently, it is an effective method to treat chronic and/or occasional pain.
