The Alverton Practice has been selected to be an approved regional UK fitting centre for Donjoy, the world's No1 manufacturer of orthopaedic bracing equipment.
Methods of managing knee injuries have changed significantly in the last 20 years with the development of state of the art knee braces which are used to help keep patients mobile during their rehabilitation programme and to help those with joint instability following reconstructive surgery. All Donjoy's braces and supports have been rigorously researched and tested and are trusted by medical teams around the world. If an "off the shelf" brace doesn't fit properly, a patient can be fitted with a custom made Donjoy Defiance knee brace.
One of our GPs, Dr Matthew Boulter, has a specialist interest in musculoskeletal and sports medicine and is happy to advise on which types of brace might be suitable for a particular patient. The practice offers a free fitting service and keeps a range of braces in stock for immediate purchase.
Patients with knee injuries such as ligament damage, osteoarthritis or those requiring post-operative bracing can be assured that they will be fitted with the correct size and brace for their needs. In addition, extreme sports enthusiasts and those whose sports impact on their joints such as skiers, surfers, runners and triathletes can book an appointment to experiment with a range of bracing and support products to help them maintain fitness and mobility.
A wide range of other products are also available to help treat conditions such as plantar fascititis, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Patients do not have to be registered with the Alverton Practice to take advantage of this service or purchase products from the Donjoy range. Please call to book an appointment.
