Our knee braces are measured and fit by experienced Physiotherapists. We guarantee a perfect fit and we are here to support you long after you receive your brace. Rest assured, when you choose Cornerstone custom knee bracing you will get exactly what you want and need.
We use only the best bracing products on the market. Custom crafted using high quality, lightweight and durable materials, these braces provide industry leading support and comfort. Whether your goal is to return to the soccer pitch following an ACL injury, or to walk comfortably with advanced arthritis, we will select the best knee brace for you.
There is currently no regulation on who can provide knee bracing services. This means that many providers will use individuals without the orthopaedic background to properly diagnose or treat a knee injury. At Cornerstone we feel that you deserve an accurate diagnosis, a thoughtful consultation on the likelihood that a brace will help, and a well rounded plan to ensure the best possible result. That is why all of our bracing technicians are experienced orthopaedic physiotherapists. Not only do we know the braces inside and out, we know your knee inside and out.
Over a decade of experience has taught us that bracing is all about the right fit. Our braces will conform to the shape of your leg perfectly, making them more comfortable and supportive than anything else on the market. We take precise measurements to ensure that the brace is made with the specifications and features you need, then we spend time teaching you how to put your brace on in exactly the right spot. We are so confident about the fit of our braces that we guarantee it for a year.
The day you receive your brace and learn how to use it, is not the end of your relationship with Cornerstone. In fact, we see it as a beginning. Our Physiotherapists are always here, ready to help you with any concerns or challenges you may encounter with your brace, or your knee!
Our admin team can provide a quote to your insurer prior to your first appointment so that you know exactly what your plan will cover. We provide all of the documentation you need to submit for reimbursement. If you have questions about bracing and insurance, please give us a call and we can assist you.
Couldn’t have had a more positive, helpful experience during such a difficult time. Cornerstone worked diligently to ensure I had the perfect custom knee brace so I was not only mobile, but more importantly, could be active after an ACL and MCL injury. The team coordinated a fitting appointment where their specialist walked me through all the details and was thinking ahead and made sure I had the brace tailored for skiing in the future. He was compassionate, informative, and very helpful. I am now biking, running and chasing after three little boys thanks to this custom knee brace. I would recommend Cornerstone and their team for a custom knee brace in Toronto anytime! It has been a lifesaver – physically and mentally! Thank you Cornerstone.
We always begin with a comprehensive assessment and consultation. Not every ACL injury requires a brace and everyone’s circumstances are slightly different. Rest assured that if your knee will not benefit from bracing we will tell you, and we will recommend the right treatment plan. That being said, here are some common conditions that benefit from bracing;
It is important to note that nothing can reverse the damage done by osteoarthritis. Bracing for this condition is not ‘curative’. Rather, it is used as a way to reduce symptoms. In fact, research shows that more than 70% of patients with knee arthritis report significant reductions in pain, despite taking less pain medication, and enjoying increased activity levels when using a custom knee brace.
