A knee brace would have two primary functions – to provide support after a knee injury and to prevent further damage to the knee. It restricts the mobility of the knee joint to stabilize the leg and help the knee recover faster, which also reduces pain and swelling associated that are usually with knee injuries. For varying levels of support, there are different types of knee braces available.
