Maybe all you need is a simple knee sleeve.  A neoprene knee brace will provide warmth and compression, that will make an arthritic knee feel better.  An arthritis knee sleeve is a simple and inexpensive treatment option that may reduce the amount of medications you take, and get you up and moving.  Less knee pain is a good thing.

This Reinforced Knee Sleeve is constructed of neoprene with a 2-sided nylon outer covering.  This knee brace provides warmth, compression, and padding.  An additional oval pad in the font of the knee support offers additional protection and localized heat.  Contouring behind the knee makes this knee brace comfortable and low profile.

This knee brace is available on the Heritage Medical Equipment website for $18.95. Click this link to learn more.

A New study published in Arthritis and Rheumatism found strong evidence that an increase in activity relates to better knee function while walking.  People with arthritis should participate in moderate intensity, low-impact exercise for at least 10 minutes, totaling at least 2.5 hours per week.

Data from patients was gathered in Columbus, Baltimore, Providence, and Pittsburgh.

Dorothy Dunlop, the study’s lead author, said, “The more active people are the faster they can walk.”  Dr. Dunlop is an associate professor of medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.

So even if your knee is stiff, just getting up and walking a little will help!  You don’t need medicine, or prescriptions, or fancy gym equipment….just put on your shoes and walk!  A neoprene support brace can help you get up and moving.
