Performance Matters!

When joints are painful, weak, or damaged, athletic performance is diminished, playing time decreased, and the potential for injury is increased. 


Supportive skins and proper sports bracing enhance performance, can aid in the protection of vulnerable joints, and contribute to overall better results on the field, the court, or on the track.

Ankle Braces and Support Options

Ankle braces

Stirrup

Lace Up

Wraps

Tri Lok


Ankle braces can be used both as a preventive measure and on an injury to the ankle. 


Injuries helped by ankle braces are those in which body weight changes rapidly from one foot to the other, as in tennis or running. Ankles may twist resulting in sprains.


 Many professional athletes who are prone to ankle sprains, use braces as protection against injury. 


Sometimes these injuries do occur, and then these ankle braces are of great help for support as the ankle heals. 



Knee Braces, Supports, and Cryo Therapy

Football braces

Skins


Supports


Hinged Braces


Cryo Therapy


Knee bracing delivers functional support for ligament instabilities.


 These include ligament instability with osteoarthritis during low-to-high impact activities, as well as for sliding sports.  

Back Supports and Braces

Back Braces

Supports

Back braces can limit stress on the back and encourage proper lifting techniques.


Many braces are Indicated for lumbar muscle weakness, lumbar strains or sprains, moderate low back pain or prevention of back strain.                          

Elbows Skins and Wraps

Tennis Elbow Supports


Elbow injuries are the most common feature of both golf and tennis, with the tennis elbow support offering protection for both sports and helping to keep players active for longer. Whilst tennis elbow is a self-limiting it can take up to 2 years to fully heal with little that can be done medically, though in extreme cases surgery may be required. The best form of treatment is rest, though it is difficult for someone to give up a sport / activity they enjoy for such a long time, which is why many opt to wear elbow braces so that they can remain active throughout their recovery. 

Shoulder Joint Support Plus Cryo

Shoulder Braces & Wraps


An injured shoulder's flexible ligaments can be painful and detrimental to performance. Shoulder stability can be increased with proper joint support.


The athlete who sustains a dislocation during a competitive season poses a unique clinical dilemma. In a review of 30 athletes who sustained an anterior dislocation during their sport season, showed that a regimen of early range of motion and a shoulder brace restricting abduction and external rotation allowed 26 athletes to return and complete the season.

Shoulder

Knee

The use of cold therapy in acute sports injuries, as well as in the rehabilitation of the injured athlete, has become a generally accepted treatment method... Most clinical studies report that the use of cryotherapy has a positive effect on pain reduction and on the recovery of various injuries.

Athletic Joint Injuries

Joint injury stats in high school sports

In the U.S., about 30 million children and teens participate in some form of organized sports, and more than 3.5 million injuries each year, which cause some loss of time of participation, are experienced by the participants. Almost one-third of all injuries incurred in childhood are sports-related injuries. By far, the most common injuries are sprains and strains.

Injuries cost playing time and performance

Sports injuries cost playing time

Determining the extent and severity of the  injury and predicting the time until an athlete can return to unrestricted sport activities remain significant challenges in the management of injuries.  


Particularly challenging to caregivers and athletes alike is the unpredictable nature of the resolution of these injuries and the often-protracted time needed before return to athletic participation.

Basketball requires extensive stop and go and cutting maneuvers which can put the ligaments and menisci of the knee at risk. Injury to the medial collateral ligament is most common following a blow to the outside of the knee and can be often be treated with ice, bracing and a gradual return to activity.

Back & shoulder injuries

Soccer Shoulder injuries

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, which also makes it prone to injury. If you’re an athlete, taxing your shoulder over time with repetitive, overhead movements or participating in contact sports may put your shoulder at risk for injury.

The injury rate in CrossFit was approximately 20%. Males were more likely to sustain an injury than females... Participants reported primarily acute and fairly mild injuries.

Bracing provides needed support and facilitates healing

Cross fit braces

 The thought that braces lead to dependence and weak muscles is not substantiated by current research. To the contrary, back bracing can facilitate return to function and lead to increased trunk muscle strength. Because motion is reduced and not eliminated, trunk muscles remain active and load on the spine is distributed
