Because the knee consists of many structures working in conjunction, knee pain can stem from many different issues. It is for this reason that Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine offers multiple non-invasive options for knee pain treatment. These options range from traditional Physical Therapy to Laser Therapy and Knee Injections for Osteoarthritis. Knee braces are yet another alternative we offer, often in conjunction with these other modalities. Knee braces are an effective way to treat moderate to severe knee pain safely and effectively without drugs or surgery. They do this by reducing pressure on the knee while providing support and stability. Furthermore, because some of these knee braces can even be worn under clothing, they can allow people to resume an active lifestyle with reduced pain and swelling.
Knee braces, which cause virtually no negative side effects, can provide immediate relief by redistributing pressure within the knee. This allows the joint to properly heal and recover while the brace provides support and stability. A simple yet effective solution, knee braces can allow people to resume an active lifestyle while dealing with conditions like Osteoarthritis or Tendinitis, among others. Moreover, braces can also help patients attain better long-term results from physical medicine and rehab treatment.
Medicare and most health insurance carriers cover knee braces, which we also offer at reasonable self-pay rates. For patients receiving custom knee braces, our staff will demonstrate the proper way to apply and fit the device.
