Knee Braces

Knee braces are supports to be worn when you have pain in your knee. Some people use them to prevent knee injuries during sports. Braces are made from combinations of metal, foam, plastic, or elastic material and straps.

Treat pain & heal injuries

When you are experiencing knee pain, take the time to examine how you feel. Clicking, popping, or other noises when you bend your leg can indicate swelling in the surrounding connective tissue. These issues can be adjusted with the frequent use of a knee brace in many cases.

A knee brace can help with the swelling by providing consistent compression and stabilization to the joint to minimize irritation. Overuse injuries that result from playing sports or a job that requires you to stay on your feet can be greatly helped with stabilization from a brace.

If you are limping, are unable to fully straighten your leg, or you feel instability while placing weight on your injured leg, physical therapy and a knee brace may be necessary  A knee brace limits the amount of stress that is applied to your joint while walking, which can provide comfort. However, if the brace is worn all the time it can lead to the muscles atrophying.
