Whether you are recovering from an injury or just dealing with age related musculoskeletal issues, Barber DME offers a full line of orthopedic braces that can help you to maintain or improve your health and fitness.
Orthopedic braces can be prescribed for you for a number of different reasons. They can limit or stop muscles, joints or limbs from moving in certain directions or beyond a proper range of motion in order to facilitate healing and prevent further injury to a damaged limb or body part. Braces can also be used to encourage proper body positioning, forcing the body to move with a proper alignment, encouraging blood flow to the joints and reducing pain, as well as promoting proper breathing. Finally braces can be utilized to provide ideal support, aiding a patient in performing tasks or exercises in a manner that puts them back into their normal routine or helps them to improve to a point where they can work beyond their previous capabilities. This can help to promote increased strength and flexibility, and ultimately, enhanced mobility.
While exercise can lead to health benefits and longevity, it can also be the cause of injuries. Orthopedic braces can help to limit injuries, not only to athletes, but also to those with a more sedentary lifestyle
An older population finds itself susceptible to injuries to bones, ligaments, cartilage, tendons and muscles, merely by the fact that our bodies naturally grow weaker with age. As a result, this population suffers from stiffness in the joints and musculature, especially in the knees, shoulders and back. Unfortunately, left untreated, this can lead to chronic or acute conditions.
Barber DME carries several different types and brands of orthopedic braces, including items for the knee, ankle, hamstring, shoulder, elbow, wrist and back. Our in-store representatives are ready to help you to select the right braces for your specific needs and can help you with the paperwork for your TriCare insurance coverage.
