Knee braces are supports to be worn when you have pain in your knee. Some people use them to prevent knee injuries during sports, to treat Osteoarthritis or other knee instabilities, or post surgery.
Knee Injury Facts
1.) Osteoarthritis is a chronic condition, meaning once you have it, you have it for life. Evidence suggests that knee braces may help reduce symptoms and improve function in people who have knee osteoarthritis.
2.) Woman are 2-10 x more likely to injure their ACL than men.
3.) A person who has torn their ACL has a 15 times greater risk of a second ACL injury during the initial 12 months after ACL reconstruction, and risk of ACL injury to the opposite knee is two times that of the restructured knee.
