Knee Brace Appointment

There is no fee for an appointment. We book time for you, usually 30 - 60 minutes, to ensure you can try on braces or discuss your specific needs with a clinician. We will discuss your diagnosis and its bracing implications and options. Then we can review your knee and leg alignment to help select the best knee brace for both a functional and comfortable fit. Our clinics were built to asses movement patterns so having you use the brace while we evaluate it on you is part of our process.  Drop in patients are welcome and seen as soon as a clinician is available.

My Kneecap Is The Problem.

Patella Specific Braces

Knee Braces for Patella (kneecap) support are designed to provide assistance with the alignment of the patella. Some braces also offer advanced assistance in reduction in swelling around the patellofemoral region. Generally these braces are "pull on" styles made of varying materials such a neoprene - spandex - knitted fabrics. The fit between brands and their functional support varies so having one of our staff members help you to try on a brace and select which is best for your knee injury or pain is essential.
