One of the most-effective tools to fight chronic pain is effective bracing of the body part that produces the pain. Back, neck, wrist, arm, shoulder, knee, leg and ankle braces, as well as special shoe inserts, are all medically classified as Orthotic devices. An ORTHOTIC is a wearable rigid or semi-rigid device that supports a weak or deformed body part or which restricts or eliminates motion in an injured body part.
Lifestyle is a national leader in the use of bracing/orthotics for the management of chronic pain. Lifestyle’s expertise extends far beyond that of the traditional DME company.
There are thousands of different braces on the market. Lifestyle cuts through the manufacturers’ marketing pitches to give healthcare practitioners the information they need to make better prescribing decisions.
