The pain and instability that follow can sideline you. Dr. Pospisil takes a proactive approach to helping you recover and getting you back in the game. Braces and splints can play an important role in your orthopedic treatment plan. They are often used to prevent injuries, manage chronic conditions or stabilize the joint after an acute injury. Dr. Pospisil, our expert in orthopedic braces in Huntington Beach can help you decide if a brace is right for you.

You may be a candidate for an orthopedic brace if you need to:

• Immobilize a body part after an injury
• Limit the range of motion of a specific joint
• Improve the movement or function of a body part
• Reduce the weight on a specific joint or body part
• Correct or improve the shape or function of a body part
• Promote rehabilitation after a fracture has been treated with a cast

Dr. Pospisil, our Huntington Beach orthopedic braces provider, may also recommend custom orthopedic braces to optimize athletic performance.

Huntington Beach Orthopedic Braces

Braces do not replace other types of treatments but can be an excellent option for preventing injury, treating acute injuries and promoting function in those with chronic joint problems. Dr. Pospisil, our expert in orthopedic braces in Huntington Beach, offers many options, including ligament knee braces, osteoarthritis knee braces, patellofemoral bracing, knee support braces, neck and spinal braces, ankle braces, shoulder braces, wrist and hand braces, dynamic braces and pain management braces.

For most patients, braces and splints are only worn for a short period during the rehabilitation process. However, braces may be worn for longer periods particularly for those with chronic or long-term pain or joint problems. Regular evaluations with Dr. Pospisil, our Huntington Beach orthopedic braces provider, will be needed to monitor your progress and ensure continued proper fit and use.

If you have suffered an injury or have a chronic, progressive disease such as osteoarthritis, an orthopedic brace may be right for you. Call us today to learn more or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Pospisil, our expert in orthopedic surgery in Huntington Beach.
