Treating Knee Pain and Arthritis Without Surgery – Knee Bracing Options
Most insurers cover knee braces for people with moderate to advanced knee arthritis or activity induced knee. The authorization process can be tedious but our experience in helping patients through this process can win the day. Out of pocket costs vary depending on the insurer and the type of plan. Please ask us about pricing. We have had the best results with the Bledsoe Axiom Adjustable or Bledoe Z 12 Adjstable OA for medial compartment OA and Lateral compartment OA. This brace is also for people that are “bow legged” or “knock kneed”. This brace is fabricated from a Lightweight Magnesium or Aluminum material and streamlined design.
We use the Bledsoe 20.50 for Patellofemoral Runner’s Knee or subluxation /arthritis of the knee cap. This device is indicated for Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS) and any condition where additional support to resist lateral patella dislocation is desired. These conditions include Patella Arthritis, Patellofemoral Malalignment Syndrome, Patella Subluxation and/or Dislocation, Patellar Tendonitis, Osgood-Schlatter's Disease, Post Operative Effusion, and Jumper’s Knee.
The Don Joy Reaction is a brace using an innovative web approach for absorbing shock and relieving knee pain caused by Chondromalacia, Patellar Tendonitis/Teninosis, general Patellofemoral tracking issues.
The Breg Roadrunner is a lower profile brace that is effective for a knee pain in patients with less advanced pain and arthritis. Please contact our office and schedule an evaluation if this program could help live with your knee pain/arthritis.
