Knee pain and osteoarthritis (OA)

One of the most common causes of knee pain is osteoarthritis (OA), a disease that causes a gradual breakdown of the cartilage in your joints.

As the disease progresses and the cartilage gets worn away, the bones start to rub and grind against each other, and that causes pain.

The pain can often be felt when you bend your knees, when you walk up and down stairs, or even when you’re resting.

Alleviate your knee pain

Moderately developed OA

You may be suffering from moderate or more severe pain. Either way, you don’t have to live with it. There are a number of treatment options that can help alleviate the knee pain and let you get on with your life.

Among them is a highly effective, clinically proven option that doesn’t involve surgery – the Unloader One knee brace.

The Unloader One knee brace can often eliminate or postpone the need for surgery and it has none of the side effects of pain-relief medication.
