Your meniscus is all that stands between you and that bone-on-bone grind you hear so much about. Levitation®2 can be used as a meniscus knee brace as it separates your thigh bone from your kneecap, reducing the painful grinding.
Knee Meniscus Tears and Injuries
Because it’s thicker than cartilage elsewhere, torn segments of meniscus are tough enough to wedge themselves in your joint, causing your knee to lock. And while you can injure your meniscus at any age (it’s very common for young athletes), it does grow more brittle as you get older. Which means it’s even easier to tear. A sudden movement, repeated squatting, a twist of the knee – sometimes it doesn’t take much to damage. All of this is why more than half a million people are diagnosed with meniscal injuries every year in the United States alone. Meniscus damage is also associated with knee joint degenration due to osteoarthritis.
A Non-Surgical Approach
As you bend your knees, the compression in your knee joint can increase up to seven times your body weight. Unlike other braces, Levitation can work as a meniscus tear knee brace because it’s designed to reduce compression by acting like the shock absorption system in your car. By absorbing and disbursing weight away from your knees, Levitation can reduce friction in your joint. This helps reduce pain and cartilage loss while you build and regain your strength.
