Prescribed canes and braces

INFORMATION AND WHAT TO DO

Slip and falls often occur due to wet floors, spilled liquids, inadequate or missing entryway mats, and many other hidden hazards you don’t notice until it is too late. Trip and falls happen when unexpected objects or conditions impede your intended direction of travel. People often trip over large cracks in the sidewalk, potholes in crosswalks, unmarked and unexpected steps, and a host of many dangerous conditions that can cause a bad fall. Falls can happen when stairs break or crumble, or when a handrail or other safety device fails and causes a fall rather than preventing one.

Car accidents may require a person to need a cane/brace due to their injuries in the accident. A cane/brace might be prescribed to a person if the person experienced a soft tissue injury. Canes/braces can help heal the injured soft tissue by restricted movement and stabilization. Soft tissue injuries can be a factor in a car accident. 

Symptoms of Needing a Cane/Brace

  • Numbness in hurt area
  • Trouble using that area
  • Inflammation
  • Bruising
  • Weakness in joints

How it Can Affect your Life

Having to use/wear a cane/brace can affect your life by limiting your range of motion, your ability to work, or from completing daily tasks.

How Long is Recovery?

In most cases, canes/braces are prescribed to be worn for roughly 6-12 weeks, depending on the injury.
