Why use a brace?
Braces are used to support a painful or injured knee, ankle, back, or other injury. Knee braces, for example, can be very effective for use to prevent knee injuries during sports. Braces are made from combinations of metal, foam, plastic, elastic material and straps.
When are knee braces used?
Different knee conditions require different types of knee braces. Your physician may prefer a particular type of knee brace following a knee surgery or may prescribe a different type of brace for support instead of surgery for a torn knee ligament. Consult with your doctor regarding the type of brace recommended for your condition.
