In Reply to: Braces for arthritic knee posted by bigowl on March 04, 2000 at 13:04:34:

: Does anyone have any experience with an "unloader" type brace for dealing with the misalignment of a knee that has cartilage failure on one side? Several companies make such braces and claim they reduce pain and help offset the bowed leg that comes from this condition. Thanks for any info you can give on this.

Did you get any response to your message?
I have osteo in both knees, but one is especially worse since I need a hip replacement to boot. The brace helps to realign the bone and some of the discomfort. At times I need it to sleep with comfort. It's hard on pantyhose though.
