Supports and neck braces in Ireland
One of the most common types of supports you’ll see is the knee brace. Available in a variety of designs, from straps to open patella support and knee sleeves, they reduce movement of the knee cap and support the joint to reduce stress and strain. In turn, this helps to relieve pain caused by an injury.
Another brace you’ll often see is wrist supports. These stabilisers wrap around the wrist and are extremely popular in supporting those with carpal tunnel syndrome or preexisting wrist injuries.
