Donjoy Fortilax Elastic Arthritis Knee Support
When you're looking to purchase a knee support, it's important that you find one that provides a high level of compression to the area as this helps reduce swelling and oedema. The Donjoy Fortilax Elastic Arthritis Knee Support is an excellent brace that is designed specifically for arthritic knees during sporting activity and everyday use. As a result of its design, it offers a high level of support and compression to the area, making it ideal for a wide range of conditions.
Who Can Make Gains with the Fortilax Brace?
Acute or chronic knee pain is difficult to ignore, particularly if you work out frequently as any movement will put pressure and shock on your knee joints. The Fortilax Elastic Arthritis Knee Support compresses the joint, which in turn provides proprioceptive and neuromuscular stimulation to the area. This is particularly useful for properly positioning your knee joint, which is extremely important in sporting activities where you need to be aware of your body and its position.
The Donjoy Fortilax Knee Support can be used for a number of conditions. This includes the following:
- Acute knee injury
