Stride-OA-Knee-Brace

A knee brace for osteoarthritis works best when treating an arthritic knee where one side of the knee is affected more severely than the other.  Knee braces that provide medial support help relieve pain on the inside of your knee.

In most cases of unicompartmental osteoarthritis, the medial compartment or the inside of the knee is affected.  This is due largely to the way the knee functions, the angle of the hips,  and how body weight is distributed across the joint.
