Knee Support

Knee Support

 

Can a simple support brace make my arthritic knee feel better?

A neoprene knee sleeve will provide warmth and compression.  A support brace like this is not a cure but it will help with some of the symptoms.  A little bit of support can go a long way.  This is an inexpensive treatment option that potentially can decrease the amount of drugs a patient needs to take.  There are many types of neoprene knee sleeves available.  The best ones will be durable, washable, and have some type of covering or barrier that keeps the neoprene from directly contacting the skin.
