The brace-to-bone connection required for complete support of your knee joint
Health Star Clinic has a team of experienced therapists that are trained in the assessment and fitting process for custom knee braces.Custom knee braces remove stress placed on your joint to reduce pain and stiffness. Bracing allows you to control the position of your joint, diminish undesired or potentially harmful movements, or allow desired motion. Custom braces are designed for your knee, allowing for a perfect fit and a significant reduction in symptoms.
How Custom Knee Braces Help:
When used to relieve bone on bone pressure in conditions such as osteoarthritis, custom knee braces gently apply pressure to the unaffected side of your knee, thereby alleviating compression on your affected side. The force that is present in the degenerative part of your knee is decreased, providing lasting pain relief that usually eliminates your need for medication or surgery. When used to treat ligament problems, custom knee braces protect and stabilize in a comfortable, easy to adjust and light weight construction.
Types of Knee Braces:
Knee braces fall into four general categories: Prophylactic Braces, Functional Braces, Rehabilitative Braces and Unloader Braces. Prophylactic braces are best for sports injuries, protecting your MCL, ACL and LCL and reducing knee stiffness. Functional braces are mainly used for rehabilitation, after knee surgery or sports injuries. Rehabilitative knee braces are best for controlling your movement, after surgery or sports injuries. Unloaded braces are used for knee osteoarthritis, knee pain, stability and rheumatoid arthritis.
