Under Loader Knee Brace
Knee braces are designed to redistribute pressure within the knee, “unloading” one side of the joint to the other. An unloader knee brace does exactly what its name suggests—it shifts stress from the affected side of the joint to the healthier side of the joint.
Using an unloader knee brace, in conjunction with precision viscosupplementation therapy, stabilizes the knee joint, extends comfort, and improves mobility. The unloader knee brace is a specially designed brace made of molded plastic, foam, and steel struts to stabilize the knee joint, limiting side movement of the joint. It fits all the way around the leg at the level of your knee joint, supporting flexibility for movement.
The AKPC certified bracing specialists measure all patients and ensure a custom, precision fit based on the patient’s unique gait and everyday activities.

Many providers Cortisone Injections as an option to keep or prolong kne surgery.
KNEE ARTHRITIS INJECTIONS OFFER AN EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO KNEE REPLACEMENT SURGERY THAT CAN GET YOU MOVING PAIN-FREE AGAIN.
Arthritic knees can not only put a stop to your active lifestyle, they can cause you significant pain and discomfort on a daily basis. Today, with the right medical treatment your arthritis doesn’t have to spell the end to your annual skiing trips, weekend hikes or daily runs.
Arthritis can be caused by many things including gender and heredity factors, age and lifestyle activities. Traditionally, doctors would treat this condition with cortisone injections, arthroscopic knee surgery or total knee joint replacement.
Cortisone Injections makes arthritis worse
While cortisone injections are one the most common medical procedures, these can actually cause harm to your knees. Research has demonstrated that repeated cortisone injections actually leads to less cartilage in the knee. This is an easy way to temporarily decrease pain while speeding up the need for surgery!
Knee surgery is not always the answer
While many medical practitioners believe these surgical procedures to be straightforward, both these surgeries require you to undergo months of rehabilitation and come with their own serious risks.
There has even been research that has shown that 6 in 10 knee replacement surgeries have no clear medical indication and 34% of arthroscopic surgeries are inappropriate. Approximately 700,000 arthroscopic partial meniscectomies are performed annually in the U.S. Annual direct medical costs are estimated at $4 billion. However, the surgery has been found to be no more effective than sham surgery, simply ineffective, unnecessary, and dangerous in a number of studies.
