Reaction/Knee Pain

Do you have a lingering discomfort in your knee that just won’t go away? Finally take charge of the knee pain that has caused you problems and worry. It doesn’t matter whether your pain is a general ache or an underlying condition like Osgood-Schlatter Disease or arthritis, when you have the DonJoy Reaction Reaction Knee Brace. Not only will it have you feeling like new, but you’ll barely notice it’s there!

The Reaction Knee Brace is different from other braces or knee sleeves that you might have tried in the past–it uses elastomeric web design. By using this technology the knee brace not only absorbs the shock and disperses the energy away from your area of pain, but it also stabilizes your knee to help prevent further pain.

Step away from the traditional neoprene and elastic braces and step into the Reaction Knee Brace. You’ll feel an immediate difference from the breathable fabrics to the dual axis hinges that add to its comfort and functionality. You’ll function the way you want to function!

Preventive Bracing

No one enjoys getting injured…especially when it keeps you from participating in the sport you love. However, have you ever thought about the steps you can take to prevent that injury from happening in the first place? Whether you’ve sustained an injury in the past or not, preventive bracing is the absolute best option to ensure it doesn’t happen again or never occurs at all. Look at football, it’s the king of contact sports and can change the course of an athlete’s career in a matter of seconds! So why not take a stand and prevent a possible injury?

DonJoy is the name that world class athletes trust with their most valuable asset–their bodies. If you’re going to trust the most vulnerable parts of your body to a brace, why not trust DonJoy?
