It’s springtime, and that means it’s time to start gardening! However, along with warmer weather, it also means long hours of bending over, pulling weeds and planting flowers. These activities may cause both knee pain and back pain.
Wearing knee braces may help alleviate gardening knee pain by providing compression and support around the joint. They are ideal for gardeners who have osteoarthritis or a previous history of knee pain. Knee braces are also great for helping prevent the onset of knee pain and injuries.
Wearing a back brace can help prevent back injuries and back pain. Like knee braces, back braces offer compression and support, which helps to align the disks in the back properly. They also help individuals maintain proper posture when gardening, thus reducing the risk of back injury.
