At Performance Sports Therapy, we provide two types of custom Don Joy knee braces:
Osteoarthritic Knee Bracing
Benefits of these knee braces include:
- They reduce pain because they work to offload joint stress
- They are non-invasive and non-narcotic
- They can help you maintain your everyday activities
- They can be used in conjunction with other treatment options to help effectively manage pain and swelling
- They can be more cost effective and safer than other treatments such as medications or surgeries that carry additional risks
- They can prevent further deterioration of the joint by easing the pressure on the affected area.
ACL injury facts:
- Young people between the ages of 15-25 account for half of all ACL injuries

- Many athletes don’t return to sport after ACL reconstruction due to fear of re-injury.
