A knee sleeve is a type of support brace for arthritis. This is a simple knee brace that will provide warmth, compression, and some protection to an arthritic knee.
There are different kinds of knee braces. Some knee braces control the knee cap, others provide protection and stability, some knee braces will unload an arthritic knee joint, and some are for knee tendonitis. A knee sleeve like the one pictured in this post is an all-purpose type of knee brace. This knee sleeve is appropriate for mild sprains and strains, mild arthritis, or general knee pain.
A knee sleeve should be snug but not too tight. The compression will provide warmth and help ease the constant ache of an arthritic knee. A knee sleeve is an inexpensive treatment option that can’t hurt to try.
