What is Osteoarthritis (OA)?

Arthritis refers to more than 100 diseases that affect the joints and their surrounding tissues. Osteoarthritis, or OA, is the most common form of arthritis. The statistics on OA are staggering:

  • Nearly 21 million people in the United States have OA*
  • The incidence of OA is expected to increase even more as the U.S. population ages*
  • Over 7 million Americans are limited in their ability to participate in their main daily activities because of their arthritis*

The joint most often affected by osteoarthritis is the knee. Knee OA is caused by the degeneration or breakdown of articular cartilage that covers the ends of the bones that meet at the joint. Cartilage serves as a cushion between the bones, providing a smooth surface for the bones to move against each other.When the cartilage deteriorates the bones may actually be rubbing together. Your physician will often refer to this as "bone-on-bone" osteoarthritis.

What is Osteoarthritis (OA) knee bracing and how does it work?

Osteoarthritis (OA) knee braces stabilize the joint, help reduce pain which allows patients to return to the activities they love. Load redistribution and joint alignment Through a process called "off-loading" or shifting, OA braces help relieve pain by redistributing the weight bearing load on the painful or affected compartment of the joint to the healthy or unaffected compartment.

What to expect from a Osteoarthritis (OA) knee brace

  • Braces cannot cure OA and may not be right for everyone. However, it is a viable solution for many people. The ideal candidates are typically active people who are motivated to strengthen their muscles and willing to wear a brace to realize the benefits of this form of treatment.
  • Discuss treatment goals with your doctor and others on your health care team before you get a brace.
  • Don't expect a brace to feel good from the start. It may take from a week to a month to get used to how the brace feels on your leg. Be patient. It took a long time for your knee OA to develop.
  • Bracing has come close to eliminating pain for some people with knee OA, while others experience moderate relief.

    • I work retail and am on my feet all day and I have a general problem with the load on my knee I am 280 lbs and I injured it last year by slipping on some ice and landing on my back with my knee folded under me. I cannot bend it while there is almost any amount of weight on it and I need something that will take quite a lot of stress off of it.
    • The OA Everyday would be a great choice. It is ideal for mild or moderate osteoarthritis and mild ligament damage for daily activity.
  • rob at 5/10/2016 2:17 PM
    • I'm 36 and live a healthy active lifestyle. I have OA on my right knee due to miniscus injury. I still do kiteboarding and snowboarding. What is the right the knee brace for me?
    • I would suggest trying the OA Reaction Web Knee Brace. This brace is for mild OA and is a very light weight low profile brace that can be worn during activity. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-oa-reaction-web-knee-brace
  • John benson at 12/30/2015 12:21 PM
    • is it recommended to wear an under brace sleeve with this brace and if so what are your recommendations...thanks
    • you can wear the under sleeve if you have irritation to the brace or if you have any migration issues with the brace, but it is always best to wear the brace directly on the skin if you can
  • diane at 12/7/2015 6:28 PM
    • Hi,
      I just got the OA everyday knee brace medial,for my left
      I received it from a medical healthcare supplier.
      My insurance covered most of the cost.
      My question to you is it is to tight on my thigh and my knee.
      They did measure my thigh,they didn't measure my knee.
      Will I be able to return it as it wasn't a custom order?
      I am going to contact them tomorrow as I didn't really notice it being uncomfortable on my thigh as it was hurting my knee.
      Which I knew to expect that .
    • You will need to contact the medical supplier where you purchased the brace to find out if you can return it.
  • Robert at 8/25/2015 9:10 AM
    • I have a great amount of trouble getting a knee brace that fits properly. I have very large calf muscles, 35" and then when I measure below the knee, it is only 19". There is nothing on your sizes that match for me, what am I supposed to do. I have osteo in both knees, it is getting very severe and I am looking for relief.
    • Robert
      It sounds like you may need a custom brace as we do not make an patient ready OA brace bigger than a 3XL and accorging to your thigh measurment you need something bigger. You can contact one of our local sales reps for Don Joy here: http://www.djoglobal.com/contact-us/sales-rep-locator
      The sales rep can help you with getting custom braces for your knees
  • Swathi at 8/21/2015 12:35 PM
    • Hi I have a question regarding Measuring my thigh. So while measuring the circumference of the thigh do we need to hold the tape firmly or loose or very tight.
    • The measuring tape should be loose enough to stick a finger easily under it, but not too loose
  • Shadow at 10/6/2014 6:39 AM
    • Age 70 with cartilage issues. Both upper and lowe bones are rubbing and with barely any cartilage there is pain and swelling.
      Would this product help in alleviating pain and help with better ease in walking?
      If not, please recommend with is best.
      Thanks Much.
    • Shadow
      The OA Everyday will help with this problem. The brace unloads the side that has the bone on bone and rubbing so it is easier to walk and do activities or daily living. There is a adjustable hinge on one side of the brace that can be adjusted to unload the painful area
  • marty at 7/30/2014 1:35 AM
    • Hi I've grade 4oa on the lateral side of my left knee. I'm 33 and still very active. Could you suggest a brace that I could use for crossfit and soccer? Thanks
    • Marty
      Either the OA Full Force or the OA Nano. Both are light weight and for active people. The difference is that the Nano is 14oz, has a magnesium frame and the Full Force is 20 oz and has a aluminum frame, a little stronger than the Nano. Both are for Mild to moderate OA.
  • Bill at 7/14/2014 6:48 AM
    • my question is:
      my friend has synovitis on both knees, both medial liquid. I am not sure which ones are better for her.she is about 40 years old. She is not sure which side, medial or lateral, are hurt. so I don't know how to choose medial or lateral.

    • Bill
      Your friend can ask her doctor if a Unloading brace is right for her, if so which compartment needs unloading. Synovitis is inflammation so she may not need an unloader brace at all unless the inflammation is being caused by arthritis.

    • Is the OA Everyday ok to use for snow and water skiing. I do ski the bumps and so it would get a lot of activity.
    • John
      The OA everyday is not for active people, I would suggest the OA Nano for an active lifstyle. The brace is for mild to moderate arthritis and is extrememly light. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-oa-nano-knee-brace This would be a better choice for you.
  • ra at 2/21/2014 11:05 PM
    • in 2001 I shattered my tibia plateau when I was ready for a brace I bought the donjoy legend as I also had lcl and acl and meniscus damage to the left leg the brace over the years has helped my leg but 1 month ago I have redamaged the knee and I am in need of a brace that will help with pain relief and allow me to have a active life once again I told my dr I only wanted donjoy, is this a good brace my oa at this point is mild moderate
    • Thank you for your question. The OA Everyday will be a good option for people who need the brace for daily living. If you are an active person, the OA Adjuster would be a better option. Please feel free to call or email us if you have any other questions.
  • Bob at 11/13/2013 3:20 PM
    • I broke my tibia plateau a few years ago, since then I have developed osteoarthritis in my knee. I am a very advid skier in the winter, 80-90 days of skiing each year. I get enflexus shots into my knees each fall which does help to prevent any pain. Which of your braces would you recommend for very active, agressive skiing. Thank you
    • Bob
      Thank you for contacting product support. Take a look at the OA Nano, https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-oa-nano-knee-brace. This brace is for the active patient who has mild to moderate arthitis of the knee. It is the lightest knee brace on the market only weighing 14.2 oz. If you have more severe arthritis there is the OA Adjuster 3 https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-oa-adjuster-3-knee-brace . This brace is made of the same material as the nano but is for those who suffer from moderate to severe arthritis. Please let us know if you have any other questions
  • DAN at 6/18/2013 6:50 PM
    • I acquired the <a href="/knee-braces">knee brace</a> some years ago and have forgotten how to install it. Please send apropriate directions showing the correct positioning of the velcro straps. Thanks

  • Mike at 2/2/2013 6:19 PM
    • Can this brace be worn playing hockey or <a href="/basketball">basketball</a>? Will it slide down the leg when playing sports?
    • Hello, Mike -

      The OA Everyday is not designed for athletic activities such as hockey or basketball. Although suspension (the brace sliding down the leg) should not be an issue, it was not designed to withstand high forces incurred while participating in these type of sports. The OA Everyday is made for activities of daily living, such as walking, yard work, stair ambulation, mild hiking. By wearing it during high level activity, you can either compromise the support of the brace or even damage the brace itself.

      If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our product specialists at 888-405-3251.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  • sal at 11/22/2012 10:34 PM
    • I had surgery in my left knee to repair a tiny damage problem in my left <a href="/knee-injuries/meniscus-tear">meniscus</a>, my Dr. fixed , but now I worn my cartlige and a OA apear in my Xrays about 1mm , Im a runner , love long distance ...my Dr. give some injecctions ( sinovial fluid) and it help to stop the pain ...with this knee brace can I be able to run not long distances but enough just to keep me in shape. sorry my english.Its not my lenguage .thanks

    • Hello, Sal -

      Yes, this OA Everyday would be a good option for your suggested activity. It is recommend for use for every day activities and for mild exercises like the running you would like to do to stay physically fit.

      If you have further questions, we encourage you to contact our product specialists at 888-405-3251.

      Thank you and have a great day!

    • Chris,
      If you are looking for something for help with everyday activities of daily living then this is a great brace. It is low profile and fits under pants better than some of our bulkier braces.
  • Charlie at 8/9/2012 11:30 AM
    • Can the OA <a href="/donjoy-oa-everyday-osteoarthritis-knee-brace">everyday brace</a> be worn over clothing, or just on the bare leg.
    • You can wear it over clothing, but you may have some issues of it sliding down your leg.
  • Mark at 3/26/2012 6:46 PM
    • How can you clean the padding?
    • Hand wash in the sink with laundry detergent, rinse, and air dry.
  • Harold Hollis at 12/26/2011 1:38 PM
    • I have OA of the right knee with the damage portion being on the inside.
      As I understand this, if I order the DonJoy OA Everyday brace it would
      be “Medical Right”. Is this correct?
    • Yes, you should order the medial unloader version.

      If you have additional questions, please call 1-800-553-6019.

      Have a nice day.
  • Robert at 12/15/2011 3:52 PM
    • Would you recommend this brace for someone who has knee hyperextension from a stroke ?
    • No this product is for people with Osteoarthritis. You would benefit from a product with Fourcepoint Hinges such as the FullFource or Armor. This hinge has a dampening affect through extension, like having break pads on your car.
  • Texas Gal at 12/7/2011 7:17 AM
    • I have purchased an OA Everyday. Is there a <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fPC3YPfmOY" target="_blank">DonJoy OA Everyday video</a> on how to correctly fit my brace to my knee? Or a PDF? I have lost the little paper that came with my brace.
    • We will eventually have videos up on how to fit a brace properly, but at this time we do not. I will forward you the PDF instructions.
  • bill at 5/1/2011 1:22 PM
    • need the plastic closure piece for one of the straps. how do i get one
    • Hello Bill,

      You'll need to contact the manufactuer directly at 800-336-6569 and requesr replacement male clips for the OA everday straps.
  • Misty thompson at 4/6/2011 6:45 PM
    • What is the difference between medial and lateral
    • Hey Misty
      Medial and lateral refer to anatomical landmarks. If you were looking at someone standing directly in front of you, facing you, and you drew an imaginary line down the middle of their body splitting them into equal halves, anything towards the line would be medial, and away from the line would be lateral. The inside of the leg which is towards the line is the medial side of the leg, the outside of the leg which is further away from that line is the lateral side of the leg. In this case, the medial compartment of the knee is towards the inside of the leg, and the lateral compartment of the knee is towards the outside of the leg.
