Frequently Asked Questions

This type of bracing is used post-surgery or after the traumatic accident sustained to your knee. It will provide support and allow for ease of movement which should aid in reducing pain on movement but as you have either had surgery or sustained an injury, pain should be expected. 

Depending on the degree of the immobilization, there may be some muscle weakening due to the restriction of movement.  It is generally recommended that you see a physiotherapist during the rehabilitation process, but this should be discussed and advised by your doctor.

This will depend on the rehabilitation plan set out by the doctor and physiotherapist. During this time if there are any adjustment that need to be made to the brace, please contact us to set up an appointment to assist you.
