Frequently Asked Questions

What are the symptoms of a knee ligament injury?


Symptoms of a knee ligament injury, such as an ACL or MCL tear, typically include pain, swelling, instability, and difficulty bearing weight on the affected leg. Many individuals report a popping or snapping sensation at the time of injury, followed by pain and reduced range of motion.

What are the treatment options for a knee ligament injury?


Treatment options for knee ligament injuries may encompass rest, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery. Knee braces play a crucial role in providing support and stability during rehabilitation. They are often prescribed by healthcare professionals to protect the injured ligament, reduce strain, and aid in the healing process. The type and duration of brace usage depend on the severity of the injury and the individual's specific needs.

How do knee braces work to support and protect the injured ligaments?


A knee brace offers support, stability, and protection to the injured ligament, aiding healing and preventing further damage. By limiting excessive knee joint movement, it helps maintain alignment and reduces strain on the injured ligament.

How do I choose the right knee brace for my specific injury and needs?


Please consult with a healthcare professional who can assess your injury and recommend the most suitable brace.

Are custom-fitted knee braces better than off-the-shelf options?


Custom-fitted braces offer a more precise fit and support but can be more expensive. Off-the-shelf options are more affordable and accessible.

Do knee braces help with pain management or only provide support?


Knee braces primarily offer support, but this added stability can alleviate pain and discomfort associated with ligament injuries.
