What does DME Bracing help with?
DME bracing helps support parts of your body when you suffer musculoskeletal injuries such as back pain and joint instability such as knee pain.
Using a DME brace is a safe, effective, and non-invasive way to help you cope with chronic pain and recover from injury without needing to use strong prescription pain medication.
DME braces strengthen weakened joints and tissues, making it possible to use the injured area. This reduces any disabling effects of having an injury and also helps the healing process. Being able to do physical rehab with the help of a DME brace can speed up your recovery and prevent any lasting effects from a musculoskeletal injury.
