What is Osteoarthritis (OA)?

Arthritis refers to more than 100 diseases that affect the joints and their surrounding tissues. Osteoarthritis, or OA, is the most common form of arthritis. The statistics on OA are staggering:

  • Nearly 21 million people in the United States have OA*
  • The incidence of OA is expected to increase even more as the U.S. population ages*
  • Over 7 million Americans are limited in their ability to participate in their main daily activities because of their arthritis*

The joint most often affected by osteoarthritis is the knee. Knee OA is caused by the degeneration or breakdown of articular cartilage that covers the ends of the bones that meet at the joint. Cartilage serves as a cushion between the bones, providing a smooth surface for the bones to move against each other.When the cartilage deteriorates the bones may actually be rubbing together. Your physician will often refer to this as “bone-on-bone” osteoarthritis.

What is Osteoarthritis (OA) knee bracing and how does it work?

Osteoarthritis (OA) knee braces stabilize the joint, help reduce pain which allows patients to return to the activities they love. Load redistribution and joint alignment Through a process called “off-loading” or shifting, OA braces help relieve pain by redistributing the weight bearing load on the painful or affected compartment of the joint to the healthy or unaffected compartment.

What to expect from a Osteoarthritis (OA) knee brace

  • Braces cannot cure OA and may not be right for everyone. However, it is a viable solution for many people. The ideal candidates are typically active people who are motivated to strengthen their muscles and willing to wear a brace to realize the benefits of this form of treatment.
  • Discuss treatment goals with your doctor and others on your health care team before you get a brace.
  • Don’t expect a brace to feel good from the start. It may take from a week to a month to get used to how the brace feels on your leg. Be patient. It took a long time for your knee OA to develop.
  • Bracing has come close to eliminating pain for some people with knee OA, while others experience moderate relief.

Product Questions

Age 70 with cartilage issues. Both upper and lowe bones are rubbing and with barely any cartilage there is pain and swelling.
Would this product help in alleviating pain and help with better ease in walking?
If not, please recommend with is best.
Thanks Much.
Question by: Shadow on Oct 6, 2014, 6:39 AM
The OA Everyday will help with this problem. The brace unloads the side that has the bone on bone and rubbing so it is easier to walk and do activities or daily living. There is a adjustable hinge on one side of the brace that can be adjusted to unload the painful area

Hi I've grade 4oa on the lateral side of my left knee. I'm 33 and still very active. Could you suggest a brace that I could use for crossfit and soccer? Thanks
Question by: marty on Jul 30, 2014, 1:35 AM
Either the OA Full Force or the OA Nano. Both are light weight and for active people. The difference is that the Nano is 14oz, has a magnesium frame and the Full Force is 20 oz and has a aluminum frame, a little stronger than the Nano. Both are for Mild to moderate OA.

Can this brace be worn playing hockey or <a href="{{store direct_url='basketball'}}">basketball</a>? Will it slide down the leg when playing sports?
Question by: Mike on Feb 2, 2013, 6:19 PM
Hello, Mike -

The OA Everyday is not designed for athletic activities such as hockey or basketball. Although suspension (the brace sliding down the leg) should not be an issue, it was not designed to withstand high forces incurred while participating in these type of sports. The OA Everyday is made for activities of daily living, such as walking, yard work, stair ambulation, mild hiking. By wearing it during high level activity, you can either compromise the support of the brace or even damage the brace itself.

If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our product specialists at 888-405-3251.

Thank you and have a wonderful day!

I work retail and am on my feet all day and I have a general problem with the load on my knee I am 280 lbs and I injured it last year by slipping on some ice and landing on my back with my knee folded under me. I cannot bend it while there is almost any amount of weight on it and I need something that will take quite a lot of stress off of it.
