Recovering From Common Knee Injuries

 

Whatever age, activity level or fitness level, knee injuries can happen to anyone. Even some of the common injuries like sprained ligaments and arthritis flare ups can be supported to encourage faster healing and recovery. 

Ligament Injuries

Sprains and strains happen when the knee or leg over stretches. Sprains are graded 1-3, from partial tears to full ruptures (no longer attached). A support can add stability and support healing. Rest may be required initially to support healing. Simple movements and gentle exercise like swimming (not breast stroke!) can help speed up healing of knee ligament pain. 

Knee Osteoarthritis

Wear and tear in the knee joint over time can lead to pain and stiffness. Range of movement can be lost and movements like kneeling, squatting and stairs may become more difficult. A support can be useful for taking the pressure off, making the joint feel more stable and secure. Bending and straightening the knee on your bed will help avoid stiffness and swelling. 

Cartilage Damage

The cartilage that protects the joint surface can get worn over time or can tear with twisting injuries or falls. Putting weight can be difficult and range of movement may be lost. If can often lead to trouble putting weight on the leg or walking long distances. To speed up healing and return to sport and work, a support can be worn.


knee support for cartilage damage

The '3-Point Lock' design provides superior support over the more common two strap design. Giving a firmer 'hug' of the knee allowing the knee support to stay in place in natural alignment with the patella at the front.
