Abstract

Disability from knee osteoarthritis is one of the most common musculoskeletal complaints that physicians manage, yet their treatment options have been narrowed recently by reports of cardiac consequences of some popular non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Valgus knee bracing is one nonpharmacologic option that may improve patients' gait, relieve their pain, and keep them active.
