A knee brace can help if you’re suffering from an inflammatory or degenerative condition like osteoarthritis or if you have had a ligament injury. An unloader knee brace works by shifting the pressure and weight off your affected joint to ease pain. You should wear one when you are doing activities such as walking, sport activity, extended periods of standing or activities where pressure is being put on the worn arthritic area of the knee. For a ligament brace, that may vary from wearing it regularly to provide stability to the knee and when you are doing sports to any activities that put strain on the ligament that need to be supported.
If you’re experiencing knee pain or suffering from a ligament injury, carpal tunnel, sprained ankle or other condition that your doctor feels you need a brace for, then talk to Dr. Khan or Ken Ansell to see which knee brace is right for you.
