Do neoprene knee braces work

Common Questions and Answers about Do neoprene knee braces work


Avatar f tn Wrist braces and compression gloves (like IMAKs) can do the same for your hands and wrists. Ace bandages/neoprene braces are also available for knees. Hope this helps!
645800 tn?1466860955 So now I can finally put my pants on, but I then have to pull the legs up above the bottom of the knee braces as the top of the AFO attaches over the bottom of the knee braces. Of course the AFOs attach with Velcro straps as well and they stick to everything as well. Finally the struggle to get the pants legs down again past the AFOs. So far the fastest I have been able to do this is around 10 minutes. Oh and getting undressed is just as involved. So is all of this worth it?
1692231 tn?1325130959 You're very welcome, sweetheart. Just feel better as soon as possible! I wear the IMAKs with the fingertips cut out so it's easy to type. I also keep those slip-on, neoprene ankle and knee braces for my achy days, though those can sometimes be hard to pull on if your hands are hurting. Try the Ace bandages first. Ice packs on your knees are worth a try, too. Also try a product called BioFreeze, if you can find it. If not, try MaxFreeze, which has the same active ingredient.

Avatar m tn When that did not work, I had an MRI, which only showed some inflammation of the patellar tendon. He told me to do leg presses and extensions to build up my quads. Unfortunately, this only aggravated my knee more and did not return for over a year due to financial difficulty. A month ago, I returned and he gave me a cortisone shot. It did not get rid of the irritation completely but it seemed to shorten the duration of symptoms. In the meantime, I have been going to physical therapy.
Avatar f tn My doctor told me to wear knee braces whenever I am going to be on my feet a lot. The knee braces help a little but they drive me crazy. My doctor told me that I need to have knee surgery on both of my knees in order to prevent it from getting worse. I have refused the surgery and now two years later they are hurting worse than ever.
Avatar n tn You could also look up knee strengthening exercises on the Internet. Use ice whenever possible and take Advil or other anti-inflamms. Also, knee braces work wonderfully. Go to your local drug store and buy a good one. Try it out by wearing it for a few days and see if it gives you any relief from the pain. Another thing that might help your pain is if you ask for and get a steroid injection directly into your knee joint. It can usually relieve pain for about a month or so.
518798 tn?1295212279 t have the opportunity to read all the previous posts and questions. So, here we go. For the past 2 months, my knee has been slowly getting worse. It started with a little ache in the knee, but now it is to the point that it keeps me up all night. If I have my leg straight, it hurts like hell to bend it, and if I am sitting with it bent, I can't straighten it out. I am a teacher and several times when I go to stand up, my knee gives way when I try to get up.
Avatar m tn I read that dental work may cause an outbreak if i have hsv, but i'm not sure if i do since i've never gotten an outbreak but have dated people with oral herpes, but they've never suffered an outbreak after the initial. whats the % of outbreaks caused by dental works? since i need to get a tooth removed for braces.
Avatar m tn 3) Can I continue with sports such as cricket, cycling and swimming if I wear knee braces/supports? If yes then which kind of knee braces/support? (because I usually tend to injure my knee with the elastic knee supports more often than without it). 4) Would Yoga, magnet therapy or any kind of therapy help heal the knee joint? Thanks in anticipation...
4966610 tn?1362054308 I have a toy/mini poodle named Shadow who is over 12 years old. He weighs 12.5 lbs. He has several serious medical issues including a luxating patella (trick knee) on his right rear leg. Because of his age, and his medical condition, I don't want to chance surgery to repair this as there is more of a risk of fatality from surgery and or anesthesia as he gets older. Unless there is some dire need for surgery, I am looking for a non surgical solution for this problem.
Avatar f tn I'm really hurting and I'm about to be 33 wks... think I'm going to go buy knee braces or something. .. weight is probably the issue, I wonder if a cold or hot pack will work. ..maybe icy cold gel, not sure if safe though. .

1308443 tn?1302693321 I am doing exercise I found online and wearing knee braces during karate. Nothing seems to help. The doctors keep telling me sorry just wait I out take 4 advil when they hurt. That doesn't help at all. Is there something else I should do or suggest to the doctors?
1308443 tn?1302693321 m very flat footed. MRIs and blood work is normal. This weekend my right knee began to have pain at the top of my knee cap. It feels like it is stuck on the pop. I can still get my knee to pop but it still feels like it is stuck on another pop. Usually my knees only hurt on the bottom or on the sides but never on the top. What is this? I know that my knee can't get stuck on air but that's what it feels like. What is going on and how do I get it to stop?
Avatar f tn Knee compression sleeves are generally suitable for everyday wear. The neoprene material is comfortable enough to wear everyday without experiencing chafing. However, the question as to whether you can wear it round-the-clock is subjective to your condition and how it is worn. Compression sleeves can be used on extended periods of time but provided that it has just the right level of tightness.
Avatar f tn I was told that I have patella feminel pain, I am use to having trouble kneeling and walking after a shift at work and and my knee being weak and the knee cap moving around, but lately even when I am not doing anything it feels as though something is push up on my knee cap, and extremely painful and I cant get the pain to go away. At time it feels as though something is being wedged under my knee cap.
Avatar n tn I take Black cherry extract for my arthritis. It is the best thing that I have found so far and healthier for you. I take 2 750 mg pill each night before bed. For the first week I took two three times a day to get them built up in my system. Also a brace or ace bandage helps when I am having a bad knee days to keep them a little more stable. Hope this info helps you. Have a blessed day.
Avatar f tn I dislocated my knee in April this year, went to the hospital and they popped it back in. It took from April to July for me to recover, with different knee braces and pysico. A week after getting discharged from the hospital in July, my knee dislocated again however this time it popped back in by itself, it took until September for it to be fixed. I just got discharged from physio last week (November).
233622 tn?1279334905 I am not sure what AFO stands for but they are braces that go from just under my knee down under my foot. They are for foot drop and help support my legs and hips. They are not bad but it makes wearing shorts or a dress not as attractive as it used to be.
Avatar f tn There is controversy as to how helpful this supplement is in improving arthritic knee pain, but some patients do report benefit with long-term use. As you've had regular medical checkups and MRI without any findings, you may consider discussing with your doctor some next steps which may include: physical or occupational therapy, an exercise program, or wearing knee braces, to name a few.
