A simple knee sleeve can help with knee pain. If you are new to the knee pain associated with osteoarthritis a good place to start is with a basic knee sleeve. Knee braces come in lots of different shapes and sizes. That’s because a lot can go wring with the knee joint. Knee braces can come with hinges, straps, donut knee cap buttresses, range-of-motion dials, and magnets. All these features have their merits but they’re not always necessary.
If you have mild knee pain associated with osteoarthritis a knee sleeve is a great treatment option. A knee sleeve will provide warmth and compression. This will make an arthritic knee feel better by increasing blood flow to the joint and by reducing swelling. You don’t need hinges or anything that complicated. Try a knee sleeve over Advil or aspirin. You’re going to have osteoarthritis for a long time, so you want to postpone taking medications until it’s absolutely necessary. Nobody has ever died from wearing a knee brace, or developed an ulcer, or destroyed their liver. That happens with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications.
A knee sleeve is an inexpensive treatment option that is safe and effective.
