17 Dec Brace Yourselves
The wear we put on our bodies in our everyday life can sometimes be unbearable. As years go by, the joints can start to wear out. There are many reasons why our joints start to wear. Age is a huge contributor, as we age joints can start to become a problem and sometimes become a chronic condition. Genetics also play a role in wear on our bodies. By the age of 30 bone mass reaches its peak, at that time if a person is genetically predisposed to osteoporosis, bones will weaken faster than a person who does not have a predisposition. Therefore, bracing joint’s might be a great first step for stress relief. Weight and physical activity can also stress joints causing them to be overworked. Broken bones and old fractures can cause lots of bone instability as well. With all of this wear and tear, some of us need relief. There are many things that can help with this. Wearing a brace to help stabilize your ailing joints is the first step you should take to get some relief. For back pain there are trunk stabilizing braces that give amazing lumbar support. There are posture control braces that can pull your shoulders back and help you walk upright. For overworked wrists or people with carpal tunnel syndrome, a wrist brace can be the best solution. Wearing a wrist brace minimizes pressure on the median nerve and allows you a period of “relative rest” from movements that make carpal tunnel syndrome worse. For knee pain and patellar instability there are stabilizing braces with or without hinges that can allow the ligaments to heal and give someone a boost of confidence knowing their protected.
