Whether you are an elite athlete or simply recovering from a knee injury, knee braces can be a critical component to your joint health. Established in 2005, Better Braces provides customers with access to a wide variety of top sports bracing and therapy brands.
Many collegiate and amateur athletes use knee braces to prevent injury. One of the simplest and least expensive braces is the cross strap knee brace that sits just below the knee. The cross strap treats patellar tendonitis (jumper’s knee) and Osgood-Schlatters Syndrome. Another simple and relatively inexpensive item is the soft hinged knee sleeve brace. This slips over the entire knee and provides compression and stability while allowing a free range of movement.
Moving up the ladder of both protection and cost, rigid hinged knee braces – like the DonJoy Drytex Playmaker Knee Brace – add plastic components to further stabilize the knee. These are perfect for active people suffering from mild to moderate ACL instability.
The top of the line knee braces are custom fit for your leg and commonly cost hundreds of dollars. These braces can combine plastic as well as metal components and, as they are custom fit, work with your body smoothly. These high end braces are ideal for those who are looking to prevent re-injuring their knee or who are recovering from surgically repaired ligaments.
Whatever your level of fitness or condition, finding an appropriate knee brace should be a vital part of your fitness and health regimen.
