Why Should I Wear a Knee Brace for Bursitis?
The bursitis knee brace makes this a simple orthotic for pes anserine bursitis treatment. The contoured silicone ring encircles the knee cap and provides targeted compression to the pes anserine bursa as well as the infrapatellar bursa, suprapatellar bursa, and the prepatellar bursa, which can reduce inflammation and encourage healing.
The ring of this knee brace for bursitis can also help with knee stability and patella tracking. Splints on the medial and lateral side of the bursitis knee brace add to its stabilizing and supportive features.
This knee sleeve is a great option to treat many types of knee bursitis. The condition of knee bursitis is common in many people that tend to do a lot of kneeling or bending. Kneeling or squatting can cause the bursa to swell and become inflamed. Because of this, the injury can be called many different things including housemaid’s knee, roofer’s knee, carpet layer’s knee, etc. There are many different ways to injure your bursa, but working on your knees is a fairly common cause. Some activities that require a lot of kneeling would be cleaning, gardening, carpentry, exercising such as dancing or yoga, and work activities like construction, bricklaying, and so on.

Bursitis Knee Pain
Bursae act as important cushions and/or lubricants between the bone and tendons and other soft tissues as they glide past one another. Some have up to 11 bursae in the knee alone.
Sometimes these fluid-filled sacs can become irritated due to overuse or trauma. Tight or overworked hamstrings are often the culprit for pes anserine bursitis, for instance, while infrapatellar bursitis and prepatellar bursitis often stems kneeling for long periods of time. Bursitis is also associated with knee arthritis, unfortunately. The most commonly affected bursae are:
- Suprapatellar bursa
- Prepatellar bursa
- Infrapatellar bursa
- Pes anserine bursa (Inside of knee)
Because this sleeve for knee bursitis encircles the kneecap and provides adequate compression to the entire knee, it is useful for treating all of these common forms of bursitis. The pes anserine, infrapatellar and suprapatellar bursa surround the kneecap while the prepatellar bursa is at the front of the kneecap.
The compression this knee brace for bursa problems provides can help reduce inflammation and swelling at these tender spots and also encourage healing to occur. Plus, the knee benefits from the added support. It is important to protect the knee from additional damage when one is dealing with bursitis.
