How Do Compression Sleeves Work
Braces and supports are used to control, guide, and limit the movement of an extremity, joint or body segment. Most braces and supports are made of elastic materials that lay against your body for added protection. Athletes commonly use braces during training to keep joints moving naturally while also providing support and stabilization to prevent injuries from occurring. Unlike braces made of harder materials such as plastic or carbon fiber, these supports can be more comfortable to wear so that the user can continue with their daily life without being overly restricted.
What is the best knee brace?
There are many different types of braces, slings, and splints available. Depending on whether the brace will be used for recovery or for support will determine how the user should wear the brace and for how long. If you are unsure which brace or wrap is right for you, consult your healthcare provider before making your decision. To decide which thigh or knee brace will help you heal your injury, it is best to consult your healthcare provider to learn more about your options.
