Have you ever been halted in your tracks by knee pain, especially due to arthritis? At Market Mall Physio & Chiro, we understand the challenges of living with arthritis and the importance of finding relief. In this blog post, we dive deep into the world of custom knee braces, and why they might just be the solution you’ve been looking for in Calgary NW.
Understanding knee braces: Are they beneficial for arthritis?
Knee braces serve multiple purposes, from providing support and stability to aiding in pain management. For those with arthritis, the inflammation in the joints can be debilitating. Custom knee braces, like the ones we offer, are tailored to address these issues specifically.
Perfect fit every time: the 3D scanning process
It’s not just any knee brace. Our custom knee braces are 3D scanned, ensuring an impeccable fit that conforms to your unique anatomy. Through a meticulous process, we customize these braces to meet your specific needs, guaranteeing optimal comfort and function.
Why our rebel reliever osteoarthritis braces stand out
Among the numerous options available, our best sellers are the Rebel Reliever Osteoarthritis Braces. Not just any clinician can fit these – our experts are specifically trained to ensure you get the best fit and maximum relief. These braces aim to reduce symptoms, offer robust support, and, most importantly, ensure you can continue with the activities you love without hindrance.
The key benefit: Enhancing exercise and physical activity
One of the most significant advantages of using these knee braces is that they create a supportive environment for the knee. Pain becomes less of a barrier, allowing you to strengthen the surrounding muscles more effectively. As these muscles become stronger, your day-to-day activities become smoother and more manageable.
Comparing custom vs. over-the-counter braces
Though custom knee braces come with a price tag, the level of support and comfort they provide is unparalleled. Over-the-counter braces simply can’t compete. With our Rebel Reliever braces, you’re not only getting a top-quality product but also the expertise of our trained physiotherapists who specialize in custom knee bracing.

When is the right time for a knee brace?
Contemplating if and when you should get a knee brace for arthritis? It’s crucial to consider a few factors:
- Severity of Pain & Instability: The level of discomfort and instability you experience plays a significant role in determining the need for a brace.
- Activity Levels: Where you currently stand in terms of activity and where you aim to be can influence the decision.
- Financial Considerations: The availability of third-party insurance coverage or personal financial means can be a deciding factor.
- Your Long-Term Goals: What you aspire to achieve in the long run matters, especially when considering ways to combat arthritis pain.
Making an informed decision
Remember, while these considerations provide guidance, the final decision rests in your hands. If you’re passionate about regaining control over your life, engaging in activities you love, and working towards long-term physical goals, a custom knee brace could be your ally. However, if you’re unsure, discussing with your family, family physician, and most importantly, your physical therapist can offer clarity.
Weighing the pros and cons
Our Rebel Reliever custom knee braces come packed with benefits:
- Tailored Design: These braces are customized to your needs, from choosing your favorite color to ensuring it fits your unique anatomy perfectly.
- Lightweight & Mobile: Designed for ease and comfort, our braces won’t hold you back.
However, as with any product, there might be a few considerations to keep in mind:
- Clothing Compatibility: If you prefer wearing tight-fitting clothes, you might need to consider other clothing options. But rest assured, our braces are designed to fit over clothes seamlessly.
- Initial Adjustment: Every new addition requires a period of adjustment. Initially, you might find the brace slightly uncomfortable against your skin. But with time, as you adjust, we are confident you’ll find the comfort and support unparalleled.
