This is a bit long but I think will be interesting and fruitful regarding lower extremity bracing.
Here are some of the topics I'll be covering today:
1. Indications for bracing
2. Considerations, precautions and contraindications
3. Foot and ankle bracing
4. Knee bracing
5. Bracing for immobilization, protection and correction
6. The importance of compression sleeves
7. "Who is the right candidate for bracing?

Here is a video of a patient requiring a "Corrective" knee brace. I explain in this video why this gentleman is a good candidate and the purpose for the brace.
