When to Wear a Knee Brace
The most common time to wear a knee brace is when you are having knee pain or when you want to avoid injuries. With certain sports, there is a higher chance of knee injury than with other games.
Knee braces are also worn for rehabilitative purposes. One example is following an ACL injury. The proper brace will provide you with limited movement, allowing you to gradually regain your range of motion without further injury. Knee braces can also be helpful for arthritis sufferers because they can stabilize your knee which can help reduce pain and inflammation.
Our strong, supportive patella knee braces are popular knee brace for those who are recovering from injuries or trying to prevent a reoccurring injury. They can be used during activities that require repetitive knee motions and you can adjust the compression and flexibility with the multi-strap system.
Types of Knee Braces
Best Knee Braces
When researching knee braces, you will find several styles to choose from. The style you choose will likely be based on the level of support you need. The various styles include sleeves, wraparound braces, hinged braces, and straps.
Knee sleeves are often available in multiple sizes based on the circumference of your quadriceps. They are easy to wear, and you can slip them up and over your knee. They provide gentle knee compression which can help control swelling and pain. Knee sleeves often work best for intermittent, mild knee pain. Additionally, they are designed to help minimize arthritis pain. Knee sleeves are the simplest design and the most comfortable style. They can easily fit under clothing.
Wraparound or dual-wrap braces are great for athletes who experience mild to moderate knee pain because this style provides more support than a knee sleeve. The wraparound style of knee brace is easy to put on and to take off. They can be used during training because they don’t have the bulk and heaviness of hinged knee braces.
Hinged knee braces are commonly used post-surgery by patients and athletes who need a higher level of protection and additional support during recovery. This brace style keeps your knee in proper alignment while bending to help heal existing and avoid future injuries. Your doctor may first recommend a hinged knee brace after surgery, but then move you to a less rigid design once you reach a certain level of healing. Hinged braces are either rigid or soft, and the soft style provides less support than rigid braces.
A knee strap is a great choice for a knee brace if you suffer from knee pain caused by poor patella tracking, runner’s knee/jumper’s knee (patellar tendonitis), or Osgood-Schlatter disease. Patella straps fit under clothes and are easy to put on and take off. Wearing a patella knee strap helps prevent future patella injuries and can minimize knee pain with gentle compression on your patellar tendon.
Patella braces come in two styles. One is an open patella style which has a hole above the kneecap area of the brace. The other style is a closed (covered) patella-style knee brace. Braces with an open patella avoid making unwanted pressure on the knee while offering extra kneecap support. This can allow for proper movement and tracking of the kneecap. On the other hand, closed patella braces offer slight compression at the kneecap while still offering the same pressure around other parts of the knee.
Your doctor can help you decide which style is best for your particular pain and recovery needs.
Knee Braces for Recovery
Knee Brace for Sports
Are you suffering from a sports-related injury or arthritis pain in your knee? Are you looking to simply add some additional support and prevent another injury?
Many different knee issues affect the kneecap. Some of the more common examples include patellofemoral malalignment which occurs when the kneecap is not aligned correctly and patellar subluxation which is a result of the kneecap being pulled to the side as you bend your knee.
By wearing a patellar stabilizer, otherwise known as a patella tracking brace, you can help your knee movement, and track properly. A knee that tracks properly will decrease the possibility that you will wear down your knee joint.
Patella braces can help prevent kneecap dislocations, and they also help to protect you from unnatural knee movement caused by patella-tracking issues.
RiptGear® Open Patellar Stabilizers help support your knee by providing compression all around the knee and "lifting" the kneecap into its proper position. These braces also help give support around the kneecap.
