Suffering from Knee Pain?
There are many causes of knee pain, with it being a “pain” to deal with. With the doctors being mostly off-limits due to the recent outbreak, you may feel like you will just have to put up with it.
Knee Pain can affect many aspects of your life, from walking to just overall mobility. It can significantly impact your lifestyle.
Not to worry! There are numerous different things you can do to relieve knee pain, using a Hinged Knee Brace is one of them.
But what is a Hinged Knee Brace?
What is a Hinged Knee Brace and what are the benefits of using one?
A Hinged Knee Brace is a tight, adjustable brace that used to support the knee. Once placed on the knee, the product will help with knee swelling and prevent injuries during recovery.
It does this by preventing as much sideways knee movement as possible, giving it time to recover and heal correctly. The support can also be used to give additional rest to joints suffering from wear and tear.
It will also help with bringing your knee back to full health, and preventing a further injury on the joint.
Use the brace at the start of an injury/pain, as it can stop the pain from getting worse, whilst also strengthening the knee.
How to use the Hinged Knee Brace
To use the Hinged Knee Brace, simply place it on your knee and use the velcro straps to put it around the knee. There is metal on each side of the brace to provide strength and stability to the product.
The velcro straps are adjustable, so you can tighten or loosen them depending on how swollen the knee is and the size of your legs.
As well as providing stability, the knee brace shifts a lot of weight from the knee. This is vital for recovery and important in order for your knee to heal correctly.
What else do I need to know about Hinged Knee Braces?
You are typically required to wear the Hinged Knee Brace all day to see the full benefits of using one. This includes sleeping too, which is completely safe.
You can wear the brace under your trousers so no one will notice, and you can continue to go about your day disaffected by it.
The Hinged Knee Support can help with the following:
- Severe Arthritis (Osteoarthritis)
- Severe Tendonitis
- Mal-tracking Patella (Knee Cap wobbles side to side)
- Cartilage Tears
- Getting back into activity and exercise
- Following Surgery
- Recent patella dislocation
- Recovery from a recent knee injury

Remember, keep the brace snug, but not too tight. We want you to recover well, but not be in discomfort whilst doing so!
