Bracing & Orthotics

Bracing and orthotics involve the use of external supports, such as braces or splints, to provide stability and protect specific parts of the body.

Whether recovering from an injury, managing a chronic condition, or preventing future problems, these devices have proven to be valuable non-invasive tools to enhance mobility and promote overall well-being.

At Banff Sport Medicine, we offer several bracing and orthotics services to meet patient needs.

Off-the-shelf Bracing

At Banff Sport Medicine we offer off-the-shelf braces and supports for the shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, ankle, thumb, and big toe.

We stock a variety of products from Ossur, Breg, Bauerfeind, Thuasne, and Reparel™.

These products can be viewed online at the Banff Sport Medicine Shop.

Who is this service for?

Anyone that does not require a custom brace.
