Knee Support braces

Are you tired of knee pain holding you back? Perhaps you’re dealing with the aches and discomfort of arthritis, or maybe an injury is keeping you on the sidelines. You’re not alone – many people suffer from knee troubles that can make even the simplest tasks seem like an uphill battle. Picture this: What if you could find relief and regain the freedom to move with ease? Amazing, right?

Here at NuovaHealth, we believe in empowering people to live without limitations. That’s why we offer a diverse range of knee support products that can help you reclaim your mobility and live life on your terms.

But what exactly are knee supports? Well, they are specially designed orthopaedic devices that aid in stabilizing your knee, providing the right level of support and prevention of excessive movement. These supports help ease the strain and pressure off crucial ligaments, tendons, and joints, enhancing their function and reducing the risk of further damage. Ideal for sports enthusiasts, runners, and even those who enjoy an active lifestyle, our knee supports are designed to help you avoid injuries and maintain proper form during physical activities.

Our knee supports not only provide stability but also offer soothing compression. This compression helps to boost blood circulation, which in turn can reduce swelling, speed up the healing process of damaged tissue, and ease muscle fatigue. It’s a win-win situation! The science behind this is that compression helps prevent the build-up of lactic acid, promoting better muscle recovery. This makes our knee supports an excellent choice for sports, running, and other high-intensity activities.

Discover How Our Knee Supports Can Alleviate These Common Injuries & Conditions

Our knee supports are trusted and widely recommended by physiotherapists for treating and preventing a variety of knee injuries and conditions:

  1. Patellar Tendinitis:First on our list is Patellar Tendinitis. This is an injury to the tendon connecting your kneecap (patella) to your shinbone. The patellar tendon plays a pivotal role in the way you use your leg muscles, particularly when jumping.T his condition is incredibly common among athletes who play sports like basketball or volleyball, where the force of the jump is often through the knees. Signs and symptoms include pain just below the patella that worsens with activity. Prolonged repetitive stress on the patellar tendon can lead to tiny tears in the tendon, which your body attempts to repair. But as the tears in the tendon increase, they cause pain from inflammation and weakening of the tendon. When this tendon damage persists over time, it becomes tendinitis.

    If untreated, this can lead to a rupture of the tendon, which is a serious injury that may require surgery and extensive physical therapy. So, why risk it?

    A study conducted by St. Mary’s University demonstrated the effectiveness of knee support in the treatment of Patellar Tendinitis. The research indicated that the use of a knee brace reduced pain and increased stability in the knee, allowing for improved mobility and performance.

  2. Osteoarthritis: The Ageing Knee

    Next up, let’s discuss Osteoarthritis (OA). This degenerative joint disease, characterised by the breakdown of bone and cartilage, is the most common form of arthritis. Pain, stiffness, swelling, and decreased mobility are tell-tale signs. OA is seen in about 1 in 5 adults over 45 in the UK, with women over 50 and the overweight particularly at risk. Left untreated, OA can affect your quality of life, leading to disability and even requiring knee replacement surgery.A study by Cambridge University found that knee supports, by providing stability and reducing load on the knee joint, can alleviate OA symptoms and improve quality of life. The added benefit? No side effects, as compared to long-term pain medication.
  3. ACL Injury: An Athletes nightmare

    Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries are common in athletes, particularly those involved in sports that require sudden changes in direction, like football or basketball. An ACL injury is a tear or sprain of the knee’s ACL – one of the major ligaments in your knee. The tell-tale signs encompass a loud “pop” sound at the moment of injury, severe pain, inability to continue the activity, and knee swelling within a few hours. If treatment is delayed, it can lead to permanent knee instability and increase the risk of further injury, such as cartilage or meniscus damage. A study by the University of Warwick demonstrated that wearing a knee brace following ACL reconstruction surgery reduced pain and improved knee stability. It supports the knee, limiting unwanted movements, and helping reduce the risk of re-injury during the recovery process.
  4. Runner’s Knee: Doesn’t just affect runners

    It affects a whopping 40% of running injuries in the UK. Although the name suggests this condition is exclusive to runners, it is far from the truth. Any activity that exposes your knee to repeated stress, can potentially lead to Runners knee.

    Our knees act as shock absorbers during movement, with the kneecap bearing the brunt of the impact. Causes of Runners knee can range from a direct blow to the knee, overuse, or even foot issues. Yes, you heard right! Your feet can impact your knees too. Runners, athletes, and indeed anyone participating in high impact activities are more at risk of developing Runners knee.

    Pain, the primary symptom, usually focuses on the knee, intensifying during activities such as kneeling or climbing stairs. Immediate effects include reduced motion range and strength, while long term implications include chronic pain and potential osteoarthritis. Scary, isn’t it?

    Ignoring these symptoms is akin to inviting unwelcome consequences. A timely intervention, however, can turn the tide. In a 2019 study titled “The Role of Knee Braces in Managing Runner’s Knee,” the University of Birmingham revealed encouraging results. Knee braces, it found, significantly reduced symptoms and aided recovery.

    The benefits of a knee brace in managing Runners knee are undeniable. By providing adequate support and absorbing shock, it minimises the stress on the knee. The outcome? Enhanced stability, reduced pain, and a quicker return to your active lifestyle.

    A study by the University of Birmingham found that patellar braces were effective in reducing pain for people suffering from this condition. The brace provides support to the knee, helping to evenly distribute forces across the joint and thereby reducing pressure on the kneecap.

  5. Osgood Schlatter Disease

    Did you know that Osgood Schlatter Disease (OSD), a common cause of knee pain in growing adolescents, is an inflammation of the area just below the knee, where the tendon from the kneecap attaches to the shinbone? It’s estimated that OSD affects between 10% to 30% of sporty children in the UK.

    The telltale signs of OSD include knee pain and swelling just below the kneecap. Now, you might be wondering, who’s at greater risk? Well, the answer is quite simple. OSD is commonly observed in young people who participate in sports that involve running, jumping, and swift changes of direction, such as football, basketball, and ballet. It occurs more often in boys than girls, with onset typically happening during a growth spurt.

    Why is ignoring OSD a risky business? If left untreated, OSD can cause chronic pain and may impact the individual’s ability to perform in sports. So, what’s the solution?

    Studies such as one conducted by the University of Oxford indicate that knee supports can play a significant role in managing OSD. The research highlights that wearing a knee support can help reduce pain and inflammation, providing much-needed relief. Why is it effective? The knee support helps to reduce the tension over the area where the tendon attaches to the shinbone, alleviating the symptoms.

  6. Patella Tracking Disorder

    Patella Tracking Disorder (PTD) is another common condition that causes knee pain, primarily due to the patella (kneecap) moving out of its usual path when the leg bends or straightens. UK studies suggest approximately 25% of the population may experience PTD at some point in their lives.

    The symptoms? Rising from a seated position or climbing stairs can cause a dull, aching pain in the knee. It can also lead to the knee ‘giving way’, where it suddenly buckles without warning.

    Active individuals, particularly athletes, are at an increased risk of PTD due to repetitive knee movements. Overuse, muscle imbalance, or an injury to the knee can also cause displacement of the kneecap.

    Left untreated, PTD can lead to more serious conditions, such as patellar dislocation. Therefore, it’s crucial not to ignore the signs. But how can a knee support help? A study by the University of Sheffield found that knee supports can help realign the patella, easing pain, and improving mobility.

  7. Bursitis

    Bursitis, is the inflammation of the small sacs of synovial fluid (bursae) in the knee. It’s not as common as the first two, but it’s worth mentioning. The main symptom is swelling over the kneecap that increases with movement and decreases with rest. Bursitis can be caused by chronic overuse, trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, or infection. People who kneel for a long time, such as carpet layers and gardeners, are more prone to develop knee bursitis. Ignoring this issue can lead to chronic swelling and pain, and in some cases, the infection can spread to other parts of the body. Scientists at the University of Cambridge found that the use of a knee brace can significantly reduce the symptoms of Bursitis. By providing compression and support to the affected area, the brace reduces inflammation and swelling, providing relief from pain and enhancing mobility.
  8. Meniscus Tear

    Last but not least, let’s talk about the Meniscus Tear, a knee injury often caused by turning or twisting quickly, with the foot planted while the knee is bent. Meniscus tears can be quite common, especially in contact sports.

    The symptoms typically include pain, swelling, and difficulty moving the knee. It’s particularly common in older people due to age-related wear and tear.

    In this case, ignoring the problem can lead to persistent knee pain, chronic knee instability, and an increased risk of osteoarthritis.

    A study conducted by Newcastle University found that knee supports can be beneficial in managing meniscus tears. The support can reduce pain, improve stability, and limit the range of motion during the healing process.

While knee supports are not a cure-all, they are a key piece of the puzzle in managing these conditions. They provide stability, reduce pain, and offer a helping hand (or rather, a supporting knee) to your body. However, it’s very important to keep in mind that knee supports are not a substitute for professional medical advice and treatment. Always consult with a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
