Recover From a Sprained Knee With These Knee Braces A sprained knee is the result of stretched or torn ligaments in the knee. This usually happens because of trauma to the knee, or odd movements to the knee (very common in sports where you are frequently running/stopping/changing direction). The symptoms you'll feel often include pain, tenderness, swelling, stiffness, and decreased movement.
The best remedy for most injuries is rest, but these knee braces can help compress, cool, and stabilize a knee sprain to make recovery less painful. Compression helps with the inflammation and swelling, and cooling therapies can help with the pain.
