Types of Knee Braces
Custom Knee Braces for ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL Injuries & Prevention
If you've suffered an ligament tear, you're fifteen times more likely to tear it again. It's this simple fact that causes a number of professional and collegiate linemen to wear preventative custom braces on both knees.
Many soccer players, skiers, basketball and volleyball players also choose to wear preventative braces instead of risking a season or career ending injury.
If you've suffered an ligament injury in the past, the odds of re-injuring that knee or substantially higher - a custom knee brace will help protect that weakened ligament. In addition to the physical advantages, wearing a knee brace will provide a huge boost in confidence that you're protected.
Off The Shelf Knee Braces for Osteoarthritis (Unloader Knee Brace)
Unloader knee braces can help relieve the pain of osteoarthritis. By applying slight pressure to the knee the load is shifted off of the impacted area.
Unloader braces are designed to be used in all facets of your life, this includes sports, hobbies, at work, at home or anywhere else you need pain relief.
There is a misconception that unloader knee braces are bulky and heavy. In reality they are designed to wear underneath clothing and are light weight. If the goal is to reduce osteoarthritis knee pain, while improving stability and functionality an unloader brace is an excellent option.
Signs of Osteoarthritis
- Stiffness in the knee after prolonged inactivity
- Walking or climbing stairs is painful
- The range of motion in your knee is limited
- Moving from sitting to standing has become difficult
