Stride-OA-Knee-Brace

There are few products available to treat osteoarthritis that offer immediate pain relief.  Custom knee braces make that short list.  These knee braces offer a bio-mechanical solution to a bio-mechanical problem.  Unloading knee braces actually shift your body weight from the damaged cartilage in your knee.  The hinge and shells absorb some of the pressure, and the rest is transferred to the healthy cartilage on the opposite side of your knee.  These braces work.  And for most patients the results are immediate!  Knee braces for OA have been available for over twenty years and there is a lot of valid science proving their efficacy.  Medicare, Medicaid, and most major HMO’s and PPO’s pay for this type of medical device.  Be sure to be fit by a certified orthotist.  Custom arthritis knee braces should not be ordered over the internet.
