Exercise knee brace

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise knee brace

exercise

Back to exercise and eating right. The sports knee brace works great. I love it. Today I went through a long walk in the woods with my dog. It sort of more hiking than anything. I couldn't do anything cause my knee would swell if I did. Now I can. I have also been doing a lot of weight training too.
It is best advised to get this evaluated by a primary care physician, if not an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Meanwhile you could try using a knee brace to avoid motion that may aggravate your symptoms. However long term immobility is not advised since this could lead to stiffness. Hope this helps. Take care!
i use a cheap ace brand knee brace that slips over my knee, and that seems to secure the knee a bit... any regimen suggestions until i see the doctor?
Tried using a good knee brace, not much help. For the past 1 month or so, I can feel my left knee(right knee is perfectly fine, God forbid) going stiff(even while driving). I do not have any other issues. I am normal weight & height and in my later 20's. I have seen people suffering with arthritis. They are unable to do anything normal. I am very concerned. Can this be ok in exercises? Is this an issue with my calcium intake? Experienced people, kindly advise.
However, i would also want you to have a second opinion with another doctor, to cross-verify the things. Meanwhile you can start using a Knee Brace, so as to give you additional support, for the "Give Away" feeling. Feel free to discuss more, for any doubts. Regards...
Riding and walking consistently have kept the other from surgery for 15 yeara and I am allergic to NSAIDs. Sometimes they can give you cortezone. The one knee does worse the less exercise I get. Every knee is different and that is why I would start with a GP an possibly PT first.
Contemplating using a regular knee brace which has an opening around the patella, hope this will help when exercising and not cause any further damage. I have to see the physio tomorrow. Still no news on my appointment with the orthoped - hope it comes through pretty soon. No visible swelling around the knee, maybe the ibrufen which I had taken for a week helped. I have notcied that my knees hurt more when I stand for a period of time and then try to squat or sit.
Avoid movements that make symptoms worse. Do specific stretches and muscle-conditioning exercises. Lose excess weight. Tape or brace the knee, in some cases. Learn the best way to perform a sport, and wear the right shoes or equipment. Intensive acupuncture can help.
Red2008 - I tore a ligament in my right knee about 4 years ago. Major Pain!!! I had to wear a knee brace for 6 weeks which I didn't do cause it impeded my work and the darn thing wouldn't stay on. Anyways they said if it didn't get better with the brace I would have to wear a cast for 6 weeks. I lied and said it felt fine lol. I still have some pain every now and then to this day. I imagine that I will need that cast or surgery in the future.
My father in law had this done and it did provide relief for a while, but again this may only put off surgery for an additional couple years. A custom-made knee brace, if he doesn't already have one, can also ease pain and swelling during activity. My Father in law used to place ice bags on his knees before and after playing golf or walking a lot. Exercise will also help, but it has to be non-impact, like bicycling or stationary cycling.
At first the pain was only when I walked up and down stairs and had to put all my weight on one knee but now I can hardly extend my knee without getting sharp pains on the inside of the knee. Also, not sure if this is relevant, but there is a painless bruise on the middle of my knee right below my knee cap and I have no idea where it came from. Any ideas?
I don't want to stop running, as it is my favourite form of exercise and I love it so much. I'm not sure if I should cut my runs down shorter, buy a knee brace, or keep doing what I'm doing. I'm basically looking for some advice as to what I should do with this situation. Maybe somebody has experienced something similar and could let me know what they did? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
He is unable to walk with out a knee brace and crutches. None of the heavy narcotics he is on even dull the pain. He is at a loss and no one is able to do anything for him. Any help is appreciated.
Hello, I'm 29 and on Sept 28 dislocated my knee. It popped back in place but the mri said torn patellofemoral ligament, small joint effusion and contusion of femoral condyle. My kneecap will still completely sublux also. I have been in a brace and been doing pt at home. My last follow up the ortho said my muscles are still extremely atrophied and increased the pt, said he would operate if not better in 4wks. I am still having pain when walking and being woken at night by pain.
I would advice you to use some external supports (Mobile Knee Brace), to counter the knee instability, if you are facing presently. The cause of your pain is joint arthritis and cartilage damage. So options at present are- 1) Inj hyaluronidase, etc like stuffs, which are supposed to aid in cartilage growth. 2) Cartilage regeneration. Beside these you don't have much options left.I am strictly against joint replacement as you are too young to undergo this procedure.
Some possibilities might be exercise, physical therapy, viscosupplementation, and wearing a knee brace. Depending on his other medical issues, your father may have limitations on the type of pain medication he can use, but hopefully he can use something. If he happens to be overweight, losing at least some of the excess weight has an excellent chance of helping. Water aerobics and swimming are great therapy.
I have never had surgery on the knee, I have had no injury to the knee. I exercise moderately and am not considered overweight--well at least for a 53 year old man--but I was riding a stationary bike more frequently (4-5 x per week) and at a higher resistance level for a few month before this pain. If anyone knows what this is, any contribution to this thread would be appreciated.
This has also resulted in both cartlidges being torn in the same knee due to a poor choice of exercise (stair running). I am now ready to start playing sport like basketball and maybe low impact aerobics, so I was hoping someone could help me choose an appropriate knee support that: 1. Cuts down on lateral movement. 2. Lessens impact to my cartlidge. 3. Can be warn in semi-contact sports like basketball without hurting others in collisions. Please bear in mind I am 1.97m and 113kg.
1. Lie on back and gently pull one knee to chest (which is near impossible, so I do the best I can.) Hold for 5 seconds, then do other leg. I do 5 on each let. 2. Same as above, but try to straighten leg out and hold up, again, near impossible, but I do what I can and am finding I can pull further each time. 3. Lie on back. Pull your stomach in, and squeeze your pelvic muscles like you were going to do a pelvic lift, but don't, because your can't bend or twist.
As the topic states, I get knee pain in the back of my knee when jumping off one leg while playing basketball. However, the back story should help explain things. About three years ago I rolled my ankle a number of times over the course of a couple of months. It was to the point where I favored it and just started jumping off my opposite, strong leg. This worked for the most part. However, I still managed to roll my weak ankle incidentally while playing from time to time.
Also, should I do rehab exercise with knee brace or bandage on? because I tried without bandage and knee brace it is very painful. I will appreciate any help I can get on this because I am flooded with so many questions and seraching for those answers.
I had a lot relief overnight and 2 days later the knee was down to it's normal size and 90% of the pain was gone. Since then, I've kept an ACE brace on the knee during the day while I'm at work and I'm still on the Mobic and I'm still doing so much better. Note: Just a few days ago I was feeling so well that I tried going off the Mobic. 2 1/2 days into this the knee swelling started to come back...so I quickly got back on the Mobic and did the Castor oil wrap again. Works great again!
You need to contact the doctor and talk about pain management options. A knee brace, compression wraps, ice packs, pain patches, physical therapy, Synvisc injections, etc. At your age it wouldn't surprise me if the doctor is reluctant to consider a partial knee replacement (I had my first hip done at 37), but it's best to exhaust every other avenue of pain management first. Good luck!
currently I am walking with straight legs but started leg movement and little knee exercise to stop muscle stiffness.
I deal with it. I'm not on pain meds.The thing that bothers me the worst is my knee pain. My knee has been locking up on me now for 7 to 10 years, and it's only getting worse. I can't stand this pain, it's the worst. I can't drive for more than thirty minutes, can't sit too long. Is there anything I can do besides surgery? Is it from my scoliosis?
Hello; for the past few months I have been experiencing a pain in my knee, it is just to the outside of the patella. It is a very sharp pain, like an electrical shock. It happens totally at random. It can happen when I am walking, sitting, sleeping, etc. When the pain is not occurring, my knee feels completely normal. When it happens, it usually happens every few seconds or minutes, then stops for several hours. I am not aware of any injury or unusual stress to that area.
You can take up swimming as an exercise if you have to lose weight as this will put the pressure off your knee while allowing you to exercise. How long it will take the knee to settle down cannot be said. But the right combination of rest, physiotherapy, use of anti-inflammatory medication helps treat this successfully. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Over the last four years, I have seen several ortho docs/sports med surgeons and neurologists and had PT, several MRIs of the knee and one of lower back, EMGs, xrays, massage therapy, prolotherapy (just prior to symptoms getting much worse), meds, steroid injections in the knee, ice/heat, brace etc. No test was helpful and no treatment or therapy was either. Also, I had blood work to rule out other things like diabetes and other diseases. MS ruled out.
Went to another orthopedic doctor who said my knee cap was slightly too far to the right and so out of its groove. I used Advil, Bengay, ice, rest and got a knee brace for compression. I'm now scheduled to start physical therapy tomorrow to strengthen one muscle. I still don't think the answer to the electric jolts has been found.
My husband who is 70 had a total knee replacement 6 weeks ago and the pain seems to be intensifying rather than diminishing. He had a childhood injury to this knee, then another operation 13 years ago but is crying with the pain most of the time and has gone from ordinary pain killers to needing morphine. He has physiotherapy 3 times per week, also hydrotherapy and acupuncture, they all say he is making some progress but very slowly and keep telling him exercising will relieve the pain.
