Are you dealing with constant foot pain and discomfort? The reason might be a sports injury or tight fitting shoes, wearing custom made orthotics and braces by Twain Physiotherapy & Wellness can help in quick recovery. A brace helps stabilize and restrict the range of motion in the affected area and orthotics helps in providing flexibility and comfort. Together, they aim at slow and steady pain relief along with increasing strength.
Our physiotherapists can help you in choosing the right kind of brace and orthotic for whatever is causing you pain or discomfort. Orthopaedic bracing lessens your discomfort and relieve any sort of stress and pressure applied to the affected joints. Since the body shape differs from person to person, using a custom and properly fitted brace and orthotic is incredibly important.
