Knee supports also help provide the needed compressions to speed up the recovery process following a knee injury or surgery. It is better to wear knee supports according to your healthcare professionals’ instructions. If your healthcare provider recommends, you can wear knee supports all day. Otherwise, improper or overuse of knee support can worsen your pain or cause further damage to the knee. When you wear a brace too long to immobilise your knees, it can weaken your knee muscles and joints.
Knee supports are of different types concerning their protection level, types, materials, and more. Protection levels range from one to three categories. Level 1 knee supports offer the least compression but provide more flexibility. Level 2 knee supports provide more protection with less flexibility and allow a suitable range of motion.
With Level 3, knee supports have limited movement. As they are generally heavier than others. You can find knee supports of different types including, knee sleeves, wraparound braces, hinged knee braces, knee straps, and closed and open patella braces. A knee brace should be comfortable enough to provide the needed compression based on your individualised needs.
