arthritis in the knee

Postby keyxley » Mon Aug 29, 2011 8:34 am

What type of knee brace is good for someone who has arthritis in the knee? My right knee has arthritis. The pain comes and goes. I love jogging and tennis but it just kills me. I hate to give those up but will if it gets too bad. But is there any good knee braces on the market that might alleviate the pain and prevent more damage?

Hi
You should ask your Gp`s advice or even a physio`s to make sure you are using the right type, like you said you dont want to cause more damage. :goodluck1:

I agree with Shaz, it would need to be fitted properly for you to get the most benefit so you need to speak to your doc to get referred to the physio department :goodluck2: with it :wave:
