The Importance of a Ligament Knee Brace in Post-Op Rehabilitation
Post-operative rehabilitation is the period of recovery that comes after surgery. Needless to say, rehabilitation is essential to long-term recovery and future health, most especially for athletes who engage in sports for a living. In professional athletes, effective rehabilitation after surgery usually determines whether the athlete will be able to continue playing or should walk away from the game entirely.
Knee braces and ligament knee supports, like the Ossur Paradigm OTS Knee Ligament Brace, is often recommended after surgery. This is because knee braces help control the knee's range of motion, most especially in the case of reconstructive surgery, and helps protect the knee graft as it heals. Knee bracing is usually done for a number of months following surgery.
