Knee Cap Arthritis

October 17, 2013

Shields II Instruction

The knee pain associated with arthritis can be caused by the patella (knee cap).  If the knee cap is out of position it can cause discomfort with every step.  Many times a knee brace can be an effective treatment option for patella tracking problems – but it has to be the correct type of knee brace.

Heritage Medical Equipment has a knee brace that can correct a misaligned patella.  The Shields Knee Brace is a patella tracking brace designed to mimic the taping an athletic trainer would provide during therapy.

This is a low-profile comfortable knee brace.  it actually grabs the knee cap and pulls it back into a comfortable position.  This is the best brace available for patella tracking issues.
