Chicago, Illinois (PressExposure) August 20, 2008 -- Knee braces are used by people to help treat knee injuries and a wide varitey of knee disorders. While a knee brace can not cure you, they have been known to reduce pain while adding meaningful stability that your knee may very well need! The confidence the DonJoy Comfort Knee Brace can give you, with the support it provides, will help you in many of your daily activities. You will be surprised at how a simple knee brace can help you.
The DonJoy Comfort Knee Brace was designed to provide gentle compression and to help provide support to individuals with a wide variety of knee ailments. The support this knee brace can provide can help people that suffer from knee arthritis, Chondromalacia patella, Bursitis, Tendonitis, and Meniscal tears (before surgery).
When comparing DonJoy's Comfort Knee Brace (aka DonJoy's Cartilage Knee Brace) to other knee braces, certain important material comparisons come to mind. For example, many store / pharmacy bought knee braces are made of neoprene. Neoprene is a material that can be helpful, but it can become hot, and it is possible to have an allergic reaction to it. On the other hand, the Comfort Knee Brace is made of a heavy knit cotton, which is more breathable, and is more comfortable than neoprene. In addition, the DonJoy Comfort knee brace provides gentle side to side support, whereas most simple neoprene knee sleeves do not.
Another benefit of this knee brace is that there is a cushion in the front of the knee that provides protection to the knee cap, if it is painful. This can be of help, for example if you are one to ever work while on your knees. This task, of being on your knees can be difficult enough, without adding on the fact that you may have arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, etc...
It is important to also note that the DonJoy Comfort Knee brace is much easier to wear because of its low profile design, as compared to some clunky knee braces that are sold.
If you are experiencing pain, as a result of an injury or knee disorder, a quality knee brace can be a useful addition to some, if not most of your daily activities. You can look into getting one, or you can look back, six months from now, wondering what you could have done about your knee pain.
