Orthopedic braces for the knee can be used for multiple reasons. Custom bracing can provide extra support, control motion and or limit injury causing forces. Connecticut Orthopedic Specialists & STAR Physical Therapy offer off the shelf, ready to use sport and orthopedic bracing, as well as custom fit DonJoy & Townsend knee braces. These braces are specifically designed for your musculoskeletal symptoms--sports injuries, osteoarthritis, chronic/repetitive use syndromes, ligament tears (ACL, PCL etc), tendon ruptures or sprain/strains.
Our custom bracing team works with your physical therapist, athletic trainer, and physician to choose, fit and deliver the most appropriate, efficient and comfortable brace for your needs. By prescription from your physician we can help you organize coverage or reimbursement through third party insurance or payment options. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact your local STAR Physical Therapy office or speak with your COS physician.
