Frequently Asked Questions

When you’re first told that you need to wear a brace, it’s likely that you’ll have a ton of things going through your head. Thankfully, we’ve put together this short guide to help you get answers to some of the most common questions about braces for older adults.

How Will a Brace Help Me?

Braces provide support and help stop unnecessary movements that can cause pain and discomfort. People wear them for many reasons including a lack of stability or pain in the affected area. A good quality brace will protect and support the joints or the back and provide the wearer with relief from pain without impeding on their ability to go about their day-to-day life. Braces generally work by combining pressure with mechanical support.

Are Braces Comfortable to Wear?

Surprisingly, the answer is yes. Once you’ve gotten used to the feeling of wearing a brace, you’ll hardly notice it’s there. Also, when compared to the alternative of being without a brace and suffering from restricted movement and pain, they’re most definitely an appealing alternative. Over time, you’ll be so used to your brace and the positive impact that it has on your life that you’ll regret not buying one sooner.
