What Is Brace Support?

A brace in orthopedics and sports medicine is a support device that helps stabilize, align, and protect different parts of the body. It’s used to avoid injuries, assist in recovery, and give support to weak or injured areas. Braces are usually made from a mix of rigid and flexible materials like plastic, metal, straps, and padding. They’re crafted to fit tightly around the specific body part they’re supporting. Braces can be worn on the outside over the affected area or on the inside, like orthodontic braces for teeth.

The main goal of a brace is to offer stability and limit the movement of a joint or body part. By controlling excessive movement, braces help prevent more injuries, safeguard vulnerable areas, and promote healing. They can also give extra support to muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones, reducing strain and lowering the risk of re-injury. There are different types of braces for various body parts and conditions, such as knee, ankle, shoulder, wrist, elbow, back and thumb braces. These braces are often classified as preventive, rehabilitative, or functional, based on their intended use.
