Osteoarthritis Knee Braces and Arthritis Knee Braces

Osteoarthritis is a form of arthritis that involves the breakdown and eventual loss of the cartilage of one or more joints. Osteoarthritis commonly affects the hands, feet, spine, and large weight-bearing joints, such as the hips and knees. The type of osteoarthritis that has no known cause is commonly referred to as primary osteoarthritis, while osteoarthritis with known  cause is usually referred to as secondary osteoarthritis. Obesity, aging, and repeated trauma to joint tissues (those experienced by athletes) are some of the most common causes of osteoarthritis.

If you are suffering from knee osteoarthritis, then you're only one of the many relatively unfortunate people worldwide who are afflicted with this most common form of arthritis.  And with osteoarthritis comes the symptoms associated with it: knee pain, knee stiffness in the morning, knee weakness and swelling, and restricted range of motion.

It is unfortunate that a permanent cure for osteoarthritis has yet to be discovered or produced. But patients afflicted with osteoarthritis can at least take heart; they need not endure grueling hours of joint pain anymore, what with the treatments available nowadays. There are a lot of options now to help manage osteoarthritis along with the symptoms associated with it and these include injections, oral painkillers, hot and cold therapy, therapeutic massage, and—perhaps considered the most extreme option—surgery.  

While these approaches can effectively help alleviate the suffering associated with osteoarthritis of the knee, these treatment options, unfortunately, can also have serious drawbacks. Good thing that there's a far more effective and side-effect-free solution for knee arthritis—wearing arthritis knee supports or arthritis knee braces.

The Ossur Unloader Spirit Osteoarthritic Knee Brace: An Ideal Knee Brace for Arthritis

We at BraceAbility have one of the best arthritis knee supports in the market today, the Ossur Unloader Spirit Osteoarthritic Knee Brace. It is an adjustable, lightweight, and low-profile arthritic knee support for mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis. The Unloader Spirit is ideal for patients with proportionate limb shape looking to enjoy their normal daily activities. This is a sleeveless, single-upright, off-the-shelf knee arthritis brace for the relief of osteoarthritis knee pain.

The Unloader Spirit is one of the few arthritis knee braces that features a single upright on the affected side that combines with the Dynamic Force Strap to create a 3-Point Leverage System. Patients will also enjoy enhanced comfort with this brace's adjustable, light, and low-profile design. This knee support for osteoarthritis is also comfortable enough and easy to wear for extended periods of time.

The Ossur Unloader Spirit Osteoarthritis Knee Brace can not only help treat mild to severe unicompartmental osteoarthritis but is also ideal for other unicompartmental knee conditions requiring load reduction, such as articular cartilage defect repair, meniscal cartilage repair, avascular necrosis, or tibia plateau fracture.

Arthritis Relief Plus Enhanced Proprioception with the Bauerfeind GenuTrain A3 Arthritis Knee Support

Another excellent knee support for arthritic knees is the Bauerfeind GenuTrain A3 Arthritis Knee Support. The Genutrain A3 is an osteoarthritis knee brace that centers the patella during joint movement and stimulates the skin receptors and nerve endings in the muscle-tendon transition around the knee to decrease pain and swelling brought about by arthritis.

In addition to helping treat osteoarthritis, the GenuTrain A3 also helps enhance proprioception, which mainly refers to a sense of joint position. This sense or ability enables us to know where our limbs are in space without having to look. While proprioception is essential in all everyday movements, it is extremely important in complicated sporting movements specifically done by athletes where exact coordination of joints is of the essence.

The Bauerfeind GenuTrain A3 Arthritis Knee Support can also be used to help with patellar (knee) subluxation, chondromalacia, patellar (knee) dislocation, anterior knee pain, knee instability due to general muscular imbalance, Osgood-Schiatter's disease after lateral release surgery, and jumper's knee.
