Insoles for Medial Compartment OA Knee
Osteoarthritis (OA) of the Knee occurs most commonly on the medial (inner) side of the knee joint and is due to general wear and tear of the cartilage lining of the joint, usually just over time. Progression through the various stages of the disease can leave patients being eventually recommended for knee surgery/replacement, but early/mid stage symptoms can be managed if recognised and treated. Conventional treatment involves specialised knee braces and painkillers, but there is an "orthotics" solution.
Which insoles do I need?
A specific intervention is required. Lateral Wedge Technology is incorporated into these insoles to control ground force reaction and unload the medial side of the knee, thus reducing the damaging forces dramatically. This device is a real game changer, with excellent patient compliance, developed by experts at The University of Salford, UK.
