A knee brace or support may be very helpful for you if you have injured your knee, have had knee surgery, are at a higher risk for knee injuries, or are prone to chronic knee problems. It is always recommended to consult with your doctor or healthcare professional before you select a knee brace, as this ensures that all of your individual requirements are taken into consideration.
Different knee issues require different knee supports. A brace that would be used to help prevent injury is not necessarily going to be the best choice for helping to treat or rehab an injury. And if you are using a knee brace for treatment of an injury or a painful knee, physical therapy and specific rehabilitation will be necessary to combine with this use for the healthiest and long-lasting positive outcome.
