10 Years of Research Supports Unloading Knee Braces in the Treatment of Knee Osteoarthritis!

“Unicompartmental knee osteoarthritis is associated with misalignment of the knee, and unloader bracing has been recommended by various guidelines to correct this misalignment.”

“Results reviewed the evidence from 14 published articles. Almost all articles supported knee brace use and showed it to decrease pain, improve function, and improve the quality of life of patients.”

“One study in 2017 followed patients for longterm and found knee bracing to be more cost-effective than total knee replacement, and could replace the need for surgery.

“Unloader braces are an economical and effective treatment for unicompartmental knee osteoarthritis. They can significantly improve a patient’s quality of life and potentially delay the need for surgery.”
