Inflammation causes, or contributes to knee pain. When you have arthrosis of the knee, the pain emanates from inflammation in the surrounding capsule, as the damaged cartilage itself does not have any nerve supply.
The Back on Track adjustable Knee Brace is the preferred option for those who have swelling or want to use it while exercising or walking. It incorporates an adjustable strap across the upper portion of the garment. The strap itself is elasticated, and attaches by a hook and loop touch tape strap. It also has a flexible spring support in each side of the brace, designed to keep the brace properly positioned during exercise. Although it may well lend support to the knee, the product is designed purely for pain relief and the reduction of inflammation. For those who have swelling in the knee, please allow for a reduction in swelling when choosing your size. Measurement is the circumference of the thigh 12cm (4.5 inches) above the centre of the knee. Available in sizes Small through to XXX Large.
"I think the Back on Track knee braces are great for patients with knee osteo-arthritis. Nine out of ten patients think they are very good. Many have tried other knee braces and they are either too thick, too hard or slip down easily, but the Back on Track brace is a really great design and fit" Marie Zetterburg Gellerstig, MD, physical therapist specialising in knees at Sergel Rehabilitation in Stockholm, Sweden.
