An over the knee sleeve can be beneficial to an arthritic knee.  The sleeve will provide warmth and compression.  Do not underestimate how this can make your knee feel.  Even just a modicum of knee pain relief and additional stability might mean the difference between taking the steps or taking the elevator.  Small changes in your lifestyle can add up as the days, weeks, and months pass.  And decreasing the amount of medications you consume over the days, weeks, and months can also have a beneficial effect to your overall health.

It took years for osteoarthritis to deteriorate your cartilage, it will take some time to overcome and circumvent the damage.  Strong flexible legs should be your goal.  An over the knee sleeve can help!
