Arthritis Knee Brace

October 21, 2017

Knee Sleeve


A knee brace can be an effective treatment option for osteoarthritis.  Even a simple arthritis knee sleeve can make an arthritic knee joint feel better.  The warmth and compression can increase mobility and provide some protection as well as support.  A knee brace is a safe and inexpensive treatment option that is worth trying.  There are different types of knee braces specifically designed for osteoarthritis.  A sleeve is good for mild pain, a brace with hinges should be used if the knee hurts and is unstable, and a brace that actually opens the joint space should be used for severe OA.

Stretching is important for people with knee pain caused by osteoarthritis.  Why?  Because all your muscles, bones, and cartilage work together.  The knee joint slides, glides, and rotates – it’s complicated.  If your muscles are tight, your knee won’t function to its potential.  Your quadriceps, hamstrings, calves and hip flexors all need to be loose – and used regularly.

My grandmother told me when I was much younger that “if you don’t use it, you lose it.”  Simple words.  True words.

You don’t have to go anywhere to stretch.  Stretching doesn’t cost anything.  You don’t need drugs or surgery to stretch.  You can stretch right now.  If you were able to locate this blog post, then you have the ability to research a stretching program on line.  There are plenty of posts on this blog about what muscles to stretch, different types of stretching, and why it’s so beneficial.

Look around, learn more, help yourself feel better.  You can control your knee pain without surgery, and without drugs.

Try an arthritis knee sleeve to get you up and moving.
