Knee Brace for Osteoarthritis

January 20, 2016

 

An unloading knee brace is designed to provide knee pain relief for people with unicompartmental osteoarthritis.  This means a person has knee pain on one side of their knee or the other.  Usually the knee pain affects the inside (medial compartment) of the knee.  The condition comes from years of wear and tear on the knee joint.  An unloading knee brace provides warmth, compression, and some gentle pressure to the knee joint.

A knee brace is not a cure for Knee OA, but a knee brace like this will buy some time for people looking to postpone knee replacement surgery.  This is a conservative treatment option that can’t hurt to try.
