Arthritis knee braces are a great way to help alleviate the pain associated with arthritis; especially osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is the wear-and-tear type of arthritis that commonly affects the knees of elderly people; it frequently affects one side of the knee more than the other, which causes unequal damage to one side.
Specialty arthritis knee braces are designed for everyday use and can help patients live an active, healthy lifestyle with less pain. The knee braces work by helping support the weight of the body and shifting pressure away from the injured knee to the healthier areas. Because arthritis knee supports encourage mobility and activity, they can also help reduce stiffness in the joint. Well-designed knee braces will be lightweight so they’re easy to wear and won’t weigh you down, making them terrific for everyday use.
We carry several types of OA Knee Supports and Braces from brands such as Ossur and DonJoy.
