Short Patella Knee Brace
Of course, not all injuries can be treated via a small knee brace. But for some, this patella stabilizing knee brace is sufficient for stabilizing the knee after an injury or as one goes through rehab. Some conditions it can help with include the following:
This knee-o-tracker has no hinges, which makes it more comfortable to wear. If you need a hinged version of this same brace with an L-code for insurance billing purposes, this is available by special order; please call us. (See more hinged knee braces.) Plus sizes of the patellar knee brace are also available.
The c-shaped buttress can be positioned as needed for one’s injury. The kneecap area of the brace is open, keeping pressure off the patella and making the fit more comfortable.
This short knee brace is made of premium-grade latex-free CoolTex that is a lightweight and breathable neoprene alternative. This material is also sweat-resistant. All of these qualities make it a good knee brace for sports use.
The compression-molded buttress is textured and made of neoprene.
Versatile strapping and its d-rings allow for dynamic treatment and adjustable tension control. The two straps also mean the fit of the Corflex knee brace is easy to adjust.
Low-profile Patella Stabilizer for Injury
A properly tracking kneecap is essential for pain-free movement. Misalignment of the patella, patella tendon injuries and a wearing down, roughening or softening of the cartilage under the knee cap can all compromise the function of the knee joint and cause pain.
The good news is that in many instances, the knee pain can be addressed via conservative methods, such as avoiding activities that aggravate the knee and switching to low-impact activity, taking anti-inflammatory medications, icing the knee, resting it and engaging in physical therapy exercises and stretches.
Taping the knee or wearing a brace can also help with patellar tracking and reducing stress on the knee cap. This particular short patellar brace is a favorite for its athlete-friendly friendly features like sweat resistance and its minimalist design. It is also a popular knee brace for running.
And of course the adjustable, C-shaped buttress is great for stabilizing the patella and making sure it is tracking properly. See more patella stabilizing braces.
