WHAT IS KNEE BRACING ?
A knee brace is one tool in managing the discomfort of knee osteoarthritis.
In One Spine, we have many patients coming in with the diagnosis of Knee Osteoarthritis causing them to suffer from pain in their knee joint and having difficulty performing their daily life of activities.
Besides performing other treatments on patients, we also recommend patients to wear unloader brace on the affected knee joint.
WHY KNEE BRACE ?
An unloader brace can help reduce pain by shifting your weight off the most damaged portion of your knee.
In addition, it can also improve your ability to get around and help you walk farther comfortably.
Osteoarthritis can make you feel as if your knee is about to give out. As a result, you might automatically guard your knee and avoid putting weight on it.
If worn consistenly, a knee brace can offer stability and regained your confidence in moving around.
