Choosing a knee brace that suits your needs isn’t as simple as walking into your nearest second-hand sporting goods store and grabbing the first brace you see on the rack…
There are a few things you absolutely must know before choosing a knee brace that will help rather than harm you.
You see, a knee brace comes in four different types:
- Knee sleeves; which are sized and meant to be slipped on over the knee.
- Knee supports; which are adjustable and are made to wrap around the knee.
- Knee stabilizers; which contain steel springs on either side.
- Hinged knee braces; contain hinges.
