How can a knee support to relieve pain?

A knee support is used to support the joint, increase stability and where needed, reduce range of movement.

If you are recovering from a recent injury a knee support can be great at protecting and offloading the joint. They also offer the firm support for knee pain caused by arthritis.

Taking a long walk? Playing squash? Cycling? Mowing the lawn? A knee support will  take some of the impact and reduce twisting forces. For knee pain around the knee cap kneeling and squatting can be made easier by using a support which includes a reinforced ring to off load pressure.


  • Swelling management - knee swelling can increase in response to activity; a support brace can keep you on the golf course and support you to keep shopping all day, which in turn will minimise the repercussions of pain and stiffness.
  • Stability - injuries to knee ligaments can leave the knee feeling more unstable and the surrounding muscles have to do a lot harder. This can be easier to manage with a support brace to add some external support to this process, particularly useful when you have a more vigorous task that needs to be done or you’re just getting back into it.
  • Padding - knee braces with patella offloading can be great for tendon injuries as well as allowing a person to continue squat and kneeling without applying a huge amount of direct pressure onto the knee cap.
  • Protection - many braces are designed to reduce the impact going through the knee and absorb some of the shock, they can also help to restrict twisting forces if you are moving quickly or jumping.
  • Confidence - if you’ve had a past injury and still feel that your knee isn’t as strong as it could be or want to go back to the activity that caused the injury in the first place then knee braces can be a great vehicle. You instantly get more feedback from wearing the brace around the joint and this frees you up to spend more time concentrating on your sport or activity than worrying around what will happen to your knee.
