We offer both custom and over the counter professionally sized orthopedic bracing.


CCC Osteopathy provides our patients with professionally fitted and recommended over the counter, prescribed and custom orthopaedic bracing.  We utilize the world renown company DJO GLOBAL and it’s umbrella of companies as our supplier for our orthopedic braces – however, we are not restricted to just DJO Global and will order other braces from companies if we determine that is the best option for the patient and their condition.


We are able to refer our patients to our medical doctors and nurse practitioners to be evaluated to receive a prescription for most braces we dispense.  Patients may decide it is best suited to see their own family physician to obtain the prescription, upon which we will give the patient the details of the brace to bring to their physician.

Once our office receives the prescription, we will submit to the patients insurance company to determine eligibility for reimbursement.  However, it is ultimately on the patient to determine if and how much they are entitled to be reimbursed.

We do not direct bill for any medical items and payment is due upon item dispensed.  For custom bracing, a deposit will be required prior to submitting the order.  Custom bracing typically takes 2 weeks for fabrication and delivery once ordered.

What is an Orthopedic Brace?

An orthopedic brace is a medical device made of rigid or soft materials designed to inhibit the movement or range of motion of a joint. The purpose of a brace is to ensure that a joint is unable to move beyond a certain range of motion, or in some cases at all.  This ensures all connective tissues get the chance to heal properly.  In some cases, a brace can even allow you to retain use of your muscles for reasonable exercise.  Advances in the research and development of bracing techniques allow the selection amongst a variety of types.  They are designed to be used for specific injuries and conditions and are available for the majority ofbody areas and joints.

Objectives of Bracing

Use bracing techniques to:

  • Provide support and protection when preventing injuries
  • Provide support and protection when treating and rehabilitating existing injuries
  • Provide compression to reduce effusion and swelling when treating and rehabilitating injuries
  • Provide control of ROM when treating and rehabilitating injuries

Classifications of Bracing

Braces can be classified according to the following: i) Fit, ii) Purpose, and iii) Body Area Design.


Braces are designed to provide compression, protection, support and limitations in ROM for specific areas of the body.

ii) FIT:  

The fit of a brace refers to the sizing and manufacturing. “Off-the-shelf” or Custom-Made”

“OFF-THE-SHELF”: Come in predetermined sizes and are ready to use upon purchase. Generally less expensive than custom made designs.  Most reputable companies provide circumference measurements of body areas on the package to assist in proper fitting.

CUSTOM-MADE:  Fitted and manufactured for the specific patient and their injury/condition.  Manufacturer representatives, orthopedic technicians, allied healthcare providers and other trained healthcare professionals perform the fitting procedures prior to construction of the braces.  The type of injury/condition, surgical procedure and rehabilitation as well as the limb, girth, height, weight and sport/occupation help determine which model of brace should be used.

iii) PURPOSE:  

Braces are used for dynamic purposes and can be grouped as: i) Prophylactic, ii) Functional, and iii) Rehabilitative.

PROPHYLACTIC: Designed to protect an uninjured joint and the surrounding soft tissue structures.  Ex. Using an ankle brace to limited ROM instead of taping.  Typically you will see this in volleyball, football and basketball players.

REHABILITATIVE: Used to provide immobilization following a surgical procedure. Allow for control of ROM for the individual using adjustable hinges.

FUNCTIONAL BRACES: Used to provide support and protection for existing injuries, conditions, or post-surgical repairs or reconstructions. Available in both custom and off-the-shelf.

The guy is a wizard. I’ve been looking for a long time for someone that knows what they’re doing when it comes to backs. I will only see Spencer now going forward. If you decide to see someone else for back pain I’m not sure if you really want to get better. Whole clinic is great.

After many years of cervical spine discomfort and osteoarthritis most likely as a result of sitting at a desk for a good number of years, I found myself wanting to find an alternative means towards improving my spine health!My Naturopath Doctor recommended I see an Oesteopath namely Spencer Jean who came highly recommended.Spencer welcomed me into his office and the conversation began as to how to go about the process of correcting my posture! A plan of attack was formulated as to how to begin the process which was amazingly positive based on his confidence in doing so along with my part in wanting to do so!Today my posture has improved tremendously and I cannot thank Spencer enough for getting me to this point! The exercises are not difficult and As I see the progress, I am so much more encouraged in doing so! Thank you so much Spencer and the wonderful welcoming staff at Community Chiropractic Centre! I am truly blessed!
Spencer has been a great benefit to me, as he listens to what is wrong and works to help with that problem; so that I get some relief & can do more of my ADL. Before meeting Spencer & being under his care; I had very limited relief of discomfort. I would recommend anyone with chronic pain & skeletal ailments to give Spencer a try. He maybe just what you need in your life.
