Bracing and Footwear Q & A

Why do I need bracing or footwear?

Bracing and footwear are important for stabilization and promoting healing. Your doctor may recommend bracing if you have:

  • Spine or neck injuries (including whiplash)
  • Workers’ compensation injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome 
  • Tennis or golf elbow
  • Achilles tendinitis 
  • Ankle sprains 

In some cases, your doctor may encourage you to get specialized footwear to relieve pressure on certain areas and balance your skeleton. You may need medical footwear if you have:

  • Bunions or hammertoes
  • Knee, hip, or back pain
  • Diabetic foot wounds
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Arthritis 

You might also need specialized bracing or footwear if you have chronic pain that continues to worsen or that doesn’t improve. 

Which type of bracing and footwear do I need?

It just depends on your unique diagnosis and the symptoms you’re experiencing. Your dedicated doctor at Battle Born Bone & Joint Center can get you fitted for any of the following types of braces:

  • Wrist splint
  • Neck brace
  • Elbow brace
  • Hip or thigh splint
  • Shoulder support or sling 
  • Knee brace or immobilizer
  • Stirrup, functional, or lace-up ankle brace

Battle Born Bone & Joint Center can even help you get measured for orthopedic and diabetic shoes to help promote joint and wound healing and prevent future wounds. 

How do I get fitted for bracing and footwear?

To determine which type of brace or footwear is right for you, a comprehensive evaluation is necessary. Your doctor evaluates your mobility and talks with you about your symptoms. They may also look at X-ray or ultrasound images to determine the severity of your condition.

After thoroughly diagnosing you and talking with you about your condition, your practitioner educates you about the different bracing or specialized footwear solutions that may be most effective for your needs.

During this evaluation, your doctor takes measurements to ensure a proper fit. Battle Born Bone & Joint Center orders your brace or orthopedic shoes, based on your diagnosis and measurements (some types of braces are available immediately, while others might take a few days to arrive).
