We often get asked, What does a knee brace actually do?
4 Ways Knee Braces Can Keep you Active
Sometimes knee injuries slow us down, and our bodies don’t work as well, or as we age, our bodies slow down, but we want to keep active. One way to keep doing the exercise we love to do is to support our bodies with a knee brace. Come with us as we explore four ways that knee braces can keep you active.
Combining a knee brace with a good pair of shoes can help you keep active. If you wear a knee brace with shoes that aren’t supportive, you can be doing more damage to your knee. We recommend wearing Dr Comfort shoes with a custom knee brace for ultimate support.
If you have arthritis or have an ongoing injury walking is fantastic for your body, although it can be quite painful. Using knee support will enable you to continue with your exercise routine with a little less pain.
A compression knee brace can help stabilise your knee and aid with swelling from the effects of osteoarthritis. This not only assists you in doing routine daily tasks but will also help you offload some of the pain so you can engage in life actively.
Staying healthy isn’t just about diet; being active is just as important. Using aids like a hinged knee brace or a custom knee brace can aid you in remaining active when our bodies are challenged. A knee brace can help make simple stretching exercises or a big workout more comfortable and possible during healing.

Knee brace for Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis (OA) braces are weight redistribution devices that apply a varus or valgus force to the knee to “Unload” the affected compartment. By transferring weight onto the unaffected compartment, OA knee braces are suitable for unicompartmental OA as the unaffected side must be able to accept an increased load (weight).
Are you considering an OA Knee brace for Osteoarthritis? Make sure you understand the additional pressure that will be applied to the unicompartmental to assist the Unloading. If you have both medial and lateral arthritis in both compartments then this form of OA brace is unsuitable.
Osteoarthritis is a progressive disease, bracing can be effective in early stages particularly when mobility becomes an issue. The most common effects of OA is severe joint pain while suffering with mobility issues.
The Donjoy range of OA knee braces provide a range of braces and supports to compliment individuals in assisting joint pain and mobility issues.
