OA Insights from Our Bracing Representatives

Friday - May 15th - 2020

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that usually progresses slowly as you get older. While there is no cure for osteoarthritis, several treatments can help decrease pain and swelling, improve joint motion and muscle strength, and make it easier to perform everyday activities.

Bracing can help stabilize the joint, reduce pain,1 and in some cases, surgery may be recommended to repair or replace the damaging joint. Patients diagnosed with OA who wear a knee brace may feel better in the morning, be more active during the day, and rest more comfortably at night.

In support of OA Month, we asked our sales team to provide their insights on bracing treatment.

Our representatives’ expertise come from their firsthand experience with patients.
