Revised Knee Bracing Position Statement approved.
Upon recommendation of the Evidence-Based Practice Committee and the Council on Research and Scientific Affairs, the BOD approved a revised Knee Bracing Position Statement. The statement had been first developed in October 1997 and, under AAOS policy, underwent a regular review for updating.
The Committee's Sports Medicine Evidenced Analysis Work Group performed a comprehensive review and assessment of literature related to knee bracing and revised the existing position statement, providing additional levels of evidence information for all references and adding strength of recommendation for all recommendations listed in the position statement.
