The new knee brace for osteoarthritis is now available at Heritage Medical Equipment. This knee brace is indicated for patients who experience knee pain due to arthritis on one side of their knee or the other. This knee brace (also called an off-loading knee brace) applies pressure to the knee that opens (or unloads) the joint space. Pain is relieved by opening the joint space.
Most unloading knee braces cost over $1000. This is an inexpensive alternative that should absolutely be tried before spending big money at an orthopedic clinic. This brace will apply warmth, compression, and gentle unloading to arthritic knees.
The top and bottom of this knee brace have independent closures which make it easy to put on and take off. Relieve your knee pain without drugs, without surgery, and without expensive custom knee orthotics.
Instant pain relief. Ask any certified orthotist and they will say the same thing. The majority of patients who try on a knee brace for osteoarthritis will experience an immediate reduction in pain. The three point pressure system acts like a fulcrum. It is a biomechanical solution to a biomechanical problem.
These are prescription orthopedic devices that need to be measured for and fit by a certified orthotist. Sometimes these braces are fit by sales representatives, sometimes they are fit by athletic trainers, physical therapists, and even cast technicians. DO NOT LET AN UNCERTIFIED PERSON FIT THESE DEVICES ON YOUR LEG. Just because a person is a health care provider does not mean they are certified to fit knee braces for osteoarthrits. These knee braces do a lot of work, if applied incorrectly a knee brace for osteoarthritis can do more harm than good.
These knee braces work. They work best when prescribed by a physician, and measured and fit for by a certified practitioner.
