Custom Knee Bracing
What is custom knee bracing?
Certain knee injuries require more support than what’s offered in stores or off the shelf. Some patients need a brace for stability, while others need ones to take the load of their joints – this is often the case where there is extensive degeneration/arthritis in the joint.
Custom knee braces are specially made braces that are tailored for specific injuries (as opposed to generic knee injures) and offer additional support, comfort and flexibility.
What kind of braces are there?
Manual Works provides the following knee braces:
- Stability braces
- Off loading braces
- Patellofemoral braces
Do you need a doctor’s referral to get a custom brace?
No. You don’t need a doctor’s referral to be treated by any of our therapists. However, if you have private health insurance, they will most likely ask for a doctor’s referral.
Are custom knee braces covered by insurance?
Yes, if you have private health insurance that covers the service provided, then a doctor’s referral is required. Due to the high cost of a custom brace, we provide a letter to the insurance company so you can get pre-approved for the brace.
