Physical Therapy Modalities and Durable Medical Equipment (DME): Braces and Orthotics

Here at Advanced Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, we are proud to also offer various braces and orthotic casting in addition to our physical therapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic services throughout our 6 locations. We have a wide variety of braces that maybe you have received or are a good candidate to benefit from, depending on your diagnosis. Braces and orthotics are not intended to make it where you do not have to exercise and workout in order to recover from your injury, but rather they serve as an adjunct to potentially expedite your recovery process! Without further ado, let’s take a closer look at some of the braces that we offer and that you may be possibly interested in!
