Orthopedic braces & supports are widely used for the treatment of ankle sprains and knee ligament injuries suffered during sports activities. Orthopedic braces are designed to control the position of the limb and to facilitate or hinder specific movements.
New York, Aug. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "OTC Braces and Supports Market by Product, Type, Application, and Distribution Channel : Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021–2030" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06126695/?utm_source=GNW
It may also compensate for weak muscles and correct structural deformities. Orthopedic braces are commonly used for a wide range of diagnoses such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, scoliosis, spinal cord injury or stroke. Braces are also commonly used after joint surgery to keep them motionless for a while or to control their motion as the joint recovers.
Growing prevalence of osteoarthritis is one of the important factors driving the global market growth. It is the most commonly diagnosed arthritis affecting the population across all applications. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) projected that over 75 million adults above the age of 18 years in the U.S. are predicted to be suffering from arthritis by 2038. Therefore, people diagnosed with arthritis is a prominent consumer base for the orthopedic brace industry.
Injuries related to sports are increasing with the rising number of sports and physical activities. Athletes emphasize on activities related to fitness, for instance, cycling, running and others. Furthermore, the athletes are likely to get injured while performing these activities, which can further result in precarious injuries such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. Athletes from sports like football, rugby, i.e., sports that require extreme physical endurance, are likely to get their ACL torn apart resulting in a prolonged recovery or an end of a career. Indoor athletes are highly probable to acquire ankle injuries. Hence, there has been a significant demand for ankle braces from these athletes. In addition, orthopedics also recommend ankle braces after an acute ankle sprain, which is expected to further increase their demand and drive the market growth during the forecast years.
