There is mounting evidence that wearing knee braces can prevent and treat knee injuries. Today’s knee braces are smart devices that work hard to protect the knee from the stresses that may cause damage. There are basically three types of knee braces available to Vancouver residents:
- Ligament or stability knee braces, which are provides to patients who have suffered an injury. These serve to support an injured ligament, especially due to: ACL sprains or injuries, PCL sprains or injuries, MCL sprains or injuries, and LCL sprains or injuries.
- Osteoarthritis or unloading knee braces, also used for injury, which are used to unload the medial or lateral side of the knee. This type of knee brace can really work to decrease the weight bearing on the affected area while helping to reduce pain and increase the level of activity the patient is able to endure. Indications for use can include one or more of the following: Medial knee osteoarthritis, lateral knee osteoarthritis, Medial meniscus tears or injuries or Lateral meniscus tears or injuries.
- There are also general knee braces that can be used for a wide variety of conditions that may include: patellar femoral pain syndrome, patella malalignments, patella tendonitis, minor instabilities, arthritis, patella femoral arthritis, chondromalacia patellae or Osgood-Schaller disease.
