Osteoarthritis, Meniscus Injury

“I have nothing but good things to say about the brace. I have severe osteoarthritis in both knees. My left knee has deteriorated substantially over the last few years. I have had it scoped and I am now bone on bone for the most part in my left knee. I play a lot of golf and was forced into taking an Electric Kart in order to play. In spite of the using a Kart, I still had to put a bag of ice in order to bring down the swelling after every round. Further, I would be limping for a few days after.

The reality is that I will need an artificial knee replacement. However, they currently are only good for 15 to 20 years. Being active and only 56, I wanted to put off as long as I could. As anyone with knee issues, you are always searching for ways improve the strength and manage the pain. I found Spring Loaded Technology through a Google search. The added benefit was the facility was located in the city I lived in. While not a scientist, the information provided on the website made sense to me.

When I play golf now I no longer have to ice my knee after the round. It provides stability and adds strength. Further, I no longer limp for a few days after a round. However, the most surprising effect is that my left knee appears to have seen a slight improvement in its strength when I am not wearing the brace. I have only had the brace a few months, but I am excited to see what benefits it will provide over an extended period of time – not only for golfing, but for walking in general.”
