There are different kinds of knee braces and it's important for your doctor or a health professional to help decide which knee brace might be appropriate for you. Three knee components to consider are:
* medial (on the inside of the knee joint)
* lateral (on the outside of the knee joint)
* patellofemoral (behind the kneecap)
Usually knee braces are recommended for patients who have cartilage loss in one component of the knee, also known as unicompartmental knee damage. Osteoarthritis most commonly develops in the medial component.
