Supporting Your Knees

Arthritis Brace

OA Brace

Since the knee is such as complex joint, utilized in quick movements and weight-bearing activities, it is highly susceptible to injury and osteoarthritis. Knee injuries and conditions once diminished a person’s quality of life, but today there is a variety of options to help combat the pain. One of these options is a knee brace.

A simple support brace is an effective and efficient method to provide support and comfort to the knee joint.  It provides circumferential compression and warmth to the arthritic joint.  The compression and warmth increases blood flow to the joint bringing oxygen and nutrients to the damaged cartilage.
