Heal and get the physical support you need with contracture management from Evolve Prosthetics & Orthotics, serving Las Vegas and Henderson, NV. Life doesn’t have to stop because moving your body becomes difficult or painful. We provide both off-the-shelf and custom orthotics to promote healthy rehabilitation and improve your quality of life for different types of contractures.
What Is Contracture Management?
Contractures are conditions that make it hard to stretch or move a part of your body. They can be caused by problems on the surface of the skin, or in the tissues underneath, including your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Contractures may limit your healthy range of motion (ROM) and cause you pain.
Contracture management involves the use of custom bracing designed to provide stability and protection for your joints so you can move safely and more comfortably.
Quality Custom Bracing
There are many types of braces designed for contracture treatment and prevention. One approach we prefer was created by the Ultraflex orthotics company. This custom or ready-made design allows the clinician, patient, or physician to increase the motion of contracture in inch-pounds slowly. This approach is especially effective if you’ve had tendon or nerve repair done.
Contracture Management For Upper & Lower Limbs
You may need bracing for upper or lower limbs. Your contracture management orthotic will help guide, control, or immobilize the specific areas you and your doctor are trying to treat. Contracture management is available in a variety of device types for knees, ankles, feet, backs, elbows, wrists, and hands, including solutions for amputees.
- Wrist Braces
- Hand Braces
- Finger Splints
- Foot & Ankle Braces
- Knee & Hip Braces
- Elbow Braces
STATIC SPLINTS VS. DYNAMIC SPLINTS
Static splints help to immobilize a part of your body, usually to promote proper healing, rest the joint, and reduce pain. Dynamic splints allow you to move the joint in specific ways that may be increased over time. Some types of dynamic splints can assist your ability to move the joint.
WHO NEEDS THIS TYPE OF ORTHOTIC?
Your specific symptoms will help us choose the best orthotic design for your needs and lifestyle. You may need contracture management while you heal from surgeries, accidents, or injuries. We work hard to help treat and manage existing contractures.
