Knee brace wrap

Common Questions and Answers about Knee brace wrap


Avatar f tn He gave me a night brace and I was fitted for a walking brace. He also scheduled an MRI on knee and back after my insistance on knowing what caused it. Come to find out, I had a cyst in my knee that was created from arthritis. The cyst was in my knee and traveled down my leg pushing on the nerve. I had surgery about 3 weeks ago. I have a nice 7" scar down the side of my leg. After a couple months, I MAY see some improvement. 15 months out, I should know where I end up.
Avatar f tn My husband has the same problem and I always wrap his with an ace bandage when it gives him trouble and he also has a knee brace he wears when it hurts him or becomes swollen. He will not go to the Dr and I keep it pretty much down from swelling with the brace and ace bandage and he takes Advil for swelling and pain. He does not have pain all the time like you.
8412758 tn?1398013501 They seem to heal fine either way......Mine (All cases) were restricted from doing more damage for 4 weeks....In our case a knee brace was not used, but I think a sturdy wrap is helpful..... Mine also received Acupuncture for pain & Laser therapy to heal the tissue faster & control inflammation.....Worked every time!!!! We've had 4 so far!!!!
1187071 tn?1279369698 t feel anything like this but then again I tried not to move them but with my knee I have to. I had to go out and buy a wrap to put on it and I am going to see if that helps with the pain. Maybe if I keep it straight the severe pain won't happen when I get up from sitting down. I'm going to wait the 2 weeks which will be friday and call the dr and ask her to order the tests. Not sure when I can get them since my son is having surgery monday.
Avatar m tn I read "I bought a knee brace for work, and sports. It is like elastaprene, or something. It works well keeping my knee stable (ACL injury). But it makes my skin have a rash. Is there another style material brace I could buy that would not make my skin have a rash? " But no answer. Is there any solution?

Avatar f tn Is it o.k. to wear a knee brace that also covers the vaiacose vein in my shin. without the brace I have pain in my knee cap & not sure if any pain is from the varicose vein. it does feel better with the brace on But will it do harm to the varicose vein?
Avatar f tn I used to play a lot of soccer and have not in years, but I remember having knee and ankle pain quite often, enough so that I frequently wore knee braces and wrapped both ankles. I now play golf, and after playing one day I noticed some knee pain. There was no specific incident or sudden onset of pain - it just gradually appeared. I also started hearing more popping noises than usual, but now it hurt and I felt movement.
Avatar f tn My son destroyed an ACL playing football -- he lives a normal life without one, but uses an orthopaedic knee brace when he runs or plays sports.
Avatar m tn He also suggested waiting as long as possible for knee replacement so hopefully the brace helps- he did say there were more specialized Patella support braces available also- Can you recommend any if this one seems to help the situation???
645800 tn?1466860955 Yesterday I finally got my new foot brace for my right foot ( called a toe off) . Right from the start it felt so weird walking with it on. Probably mostly because my foot has been dropping and turning in for such a long time that I had gotten somewhat use to it. It is made of carbon fiber material and goes all the way up my shin to just below my knee.
Avatar m tn The knee started feeling around 80% better about 3 days ago. I wore knee brace every day even to sleep, 2 days ago I changed to a more comfortable brace with those metal hinges on sides, also slept with it. My current issue/question, is 2 days ago I woke up with a swollen ankle and pain when putting leg down to walk. I don't remember any sprain in ankle at all, I had just walked a theme park the night before with no ankle issue or even the knee felt great.
Avatar f tn thanks for your reply, I was also wondering do you think they would follow the same steps as last time regarding the surgery?? like six weeks on crutches again but no knee brace again or would they maybe change it?
Avatar f tn See your chiropractor, seriously, I have a knee that does that, he works on it and it is fine. In the mean time, try wearing a knee brace to give it support.
486038 tn?1300063367 Wha is THAT? Sounds like an alien to me. The NYU doctor said I needed one on my foot to help with my walking... and so I said "ok". This is a brace right? Because he was talking about a brace too. Just making sure!
Avatar n tn Dear Kezza, You evidently had both a discectomy and laminectomy, sometimes done at the same time depending on what the surgeon finds. Now, you say you've been caring for your husband who had a similar operation last week. This activity has probably aggravated your condition, and so new swelling is now bothering a nerve, and thus your symptoms. You need to ask a family member or friend to take your place in helping your husband right now. Quit helping him.
Avatar f tn I have no reflex in my right knee and I was thinking about getting a brace for it. Anyone have similar problems and used a brace?
957414 tn?1246670050 I went down right away and felt pain in my left knee. Both sides of my knee were a little bit swollen, and I could not bend my knee all the way back. In addition, if I put pressure on the sides of my knee, it hurts and this was after swelling went down. I was able to bear my full weight on my injuried leg without pain at all. I have since then put on a brace to limit my knee movement with icing and elevation.
Avatar f tn My doctor recommended wearing a wrist brace it helped a lot with my last pregnancy my hands and feet would go really numb it goes away after pregnancy
