If so, Accident Advice Helpline would like to hear from you to offer you support and expert legal advice about your options. Around 70% of victims who are hurt and are eligible to make a claim for compensation never do. We would like to help you with free initial advice and our no-win, no-fee service.
Do I need a knee brace?
There are many different types of knee brace which can be used to prevent injury, help with knee pain or knee injuries or to help stabilise the knee after surgery. There are four main types of knee brace:
- Prophylactic, worn to prevent injury
- Functional braces, supporting the knee after an injury
- Rehabilitative braces, limit harmful movement allowing the knee to heal
- Unloader/offloader braces, offering relief to those with arthritis of the knee
Your doctor will be able to advise you as to whether you need to wear a brace for your knee injury.
