Knee Osteoarthritis Treatment And Braces

Take Control Over Osteoarthritis

Knee Osteoarthritis TreatmentAlthough osteoarthritis of the knee is most common in athletes over forty, this degenerative disease can strike at any age. Many athletes who suffer from osteoarthritis do not necessarily need surgery to properly manage their symptoms. At Athletic Edge Sports Medicine, we offer a variety of options to help you take control over osteoarthritis and start playing to your full potential.

Your treatment plan may include:


Physiotherapy to Control Osteoarthritis of the Knee

The Athletic Edge Sports Medicine clinics house Toronto’s best physiotherapists. We are dedicated to providing the best physiotherapy treatment and care, if it is determined that this is the best course of action to help you keep playing.


Viscosupplementation involves the replenishment of a naturally occurring protein in the knees, which is depleted in osteoarthritis. This protein increases joint fluid viscosity, thereby protecting the joint surfaces. Our skilled and knowledgeable team of professionals will help determine if viscosupplementation is right for your needs.

Custom Knee Bracing

Custom knee bracing can help off-load some of the stress in the worst part of the knee, making walking or running more comfortable. We offer custom knee bracing options on premises for your convenience and comfort.

Book your consultation with one of our specially trained sports medicine physicians today, and we will answer any questions you may have about surgery alternatives to control your osteoarthritis of the knee symptoms. We request that, if possible, you bring any x-rays of the affected area to your consultation.

For a consultation, please call us at 416-800-0800 or contact us via our convenient online form.
