Custom Knee Bracing
We are proud to offer state of the art custom knee braces, manufactured by DonJoy. If your doctor has prescribed you a specific type of brace, or recommended that you be assessed for a brace, then we can help you at Guelph Performance Therapy.
Our therapist is fully trained in the prescription and fitting of braces, and is available for complimentary consultation to determine which brace would best fit your needs. This consultation includes a full assessment of your knee, review of any medical documentation to date, and discussion of all options that would fit your work, as well as any sports or activities in your life.
DonJoy custom knee braces can be built to help a variety of conditions, including ligament damage to the ACL, PCL, MCL or LCL (whether or not surgery was required), meniscus damage, and osteoarthritis of the medial and lateral compartments of the knee. There are also attachments that can be built into your custom DonJoy brace to provide stability to the patella for conditions such as PFPS or chondramalasia. DonJoy braces can even be built to include a detachable motocross knee guard to make sure that you're able to reach peak performance with your DonJoy device.
While most of DonJoy's products are reactive—you wear them after injury is sustained—some studies suggest that knee braces or other devices can be used as a preventative measure. If you are apprehensive about your knee health, or would like to learn more about this option, a therapist at Guelph Performance Therapy will be happy to help!
