Title: Has anyone had a Bionic knee Brace for osteoarthritis prescribed for pain
Post by: moonbeam on November 01, 2006, 04:32:01 AM
My pain management doc prescribed this new brace. He didn't really explain it . It looks like a tens unit sort of with gel and knee pads and velcro and you wear it 6-8 hours. I have plenty of cartilidge and don't have arthritis that I know of , but I suppose everytime someone has surgery there is some arthritis after. However, after 6 months continued pain and RSD have been a problem. I've tried this brace for three nights already and amazingly I'm walking longer and on my feet longer and have less pain in my operated knee. Mind you I still have the burning nerve pain , but the general tightness that normally occurs after continued time on my feet has improved. Has anyone else had success with this brace. To see what it it go to RSMedical.com.
