Wrist, Elbow & Ankle Compression Support

Yes. Compression sleeves will help ease your joint pain. The sleeve applies pressure around the joint which helps control swelling and increases blood flow to the area, decreasing pain. Compression sleeves are used to ease pain from injuries and ailments such as arthritis and to provide support for the joint during daily activities and sports. LEARN MORE

A compression sleeve provides joint support and also reduces swelling and narrows blood vessels; this translates to less stress on the muscles and faster, more efficient blood flow to and from the affected area. This facilitates faster recovery as efficient blood flow is very important in eliminating waste produced by the muscles and bringing oxygen and necessary nutrients to the area. That means reduced discomfort, pain and swelling in just a matter of days.

Compression also reduces muscle vibration and joint instability, providing you with more joint support and a stable foundation for a variety of sports and daily activities. Compression also boosts your lymphatic system and reduces inflammation, which can play a role in decreasing osteoarthritis pain and improving function. Lastly, compression sleeves serve as a very helpful aid during exercise warm-ups since they warm and lubricate the joints.

Yes. A compression sleeve is a good way to help ease the pain associated with arthritis, especially osteoarthritis. Joint supports provide compression that can reduce swelling and inflammation as well as warm the joint, which can help reduce stiffness. If you feel unsteady, compression sleeves allow for mobility and activity while supporting the joint.

We understand the pain and frustration associated with arthritis. Pain and discomfort often make the simplest of tasks difficult. Fortunately, the support of a compression sleeve is one way to manage osteoarthritis and get pain relief without surgery.

The reason compression is so important for arthritis is that it encourages blood flow through the blood vessels of the joint. Increased blood flow results in less pain and swelling during and after daily activities. Compression also boosts your lymphatic system and reduces inflammation.

Yes. Compression sleeves are mainly used for regular joint support to prevent injuries.

Knee Compression Sleeves and Braces

Yes, a compression sleeve will help ease your knee pain. Compression sleeves decrease pain by providing compression around the knee which not only helps control swelling but also increases blood flow to the area, decreasing pain. Knee sleeves are used to ease pain from injuries and ailments such as arthritis as well as provide support for the joint during daily activities and sports like walking, running, jumping and weightlifting.

When shopping for compression sleeves, there are 4 features you should look for: Fit, Material, Construction, Color

  1. Fit. Choosing a well-designed compression sleeve is very important. A quality knee sleeve should provide even and consistent compression around knee. Make sure that you measure your calves for proper sizing to ensure that the sleeves will fit you correctly. If the compression sleeves are too tight, they will be uncomfortable. If they are too loose, they won’t provide enough compression and will slide down your leg. SIZE CHART
  2. Material. Look for compression sleeves that are made of moisture-wicking fabric that that keeps your skin dry. A breathable knee sleeve is always the best choice.
  3. Construction. Compression sleeves made using a seamless construction (no seams) are by far the best choice. This design allow the use of mesh panels and ribbing for optimal breathability and targeted support. So look for tightly woven high-compression knee sleeves.
  4. Color: Less of a factor than the others, but make sure the color is a fit with your intended use. For example, don’t buy white if your sleeves are bound to get dirty. If you’re using the knee sleeves for running, bright colors help provide low-light safety outside. So, look for compression sleeves that come with several colors and sizes.

A patella stabilizing brace works really well to keep your kneecap in the correct position by supporting proper movement while decreasing the degeneration of the knee joint. It can also protect against unnatural knee movement caused by tracking issues and prevent kneecap dislocation. Patellar stabilizers and patella tracking braces help do this by providing compression all around the knee and “lifting” the knee into proper position. They also help give added support all around the kneecap.

One of the best patellar dislocation braces is the stabilizing patella knee brace. This patella stabilizer supports the knee while allowing breathability. There are two types of patella knee braces: Open and Closed. Either will help the knee heal from patellar dislocation. Here’s the difference.

Open patella braces provide slightly less support than closed patella braces. Many open patella braces are designed to support the patella as a secondary benefit, holding it in proper alignment relative to the rest of the knee joint. Athletes in more active sports often favor open patella braces for their lightness and flexibility.

Closed patella knee braces can sometimes aggravate knee injuries by applying pressure to the patella during a workout, causing it to move off-center or rub against the underlying joint. Powerlifters and bodybuilders often favor the closed design.

Yes. A knee sleeve can help with Runner’s Knee and patellofemoral pain in general. The best sleeve to support your knee for runner’s knee is one you can wear daily and while you run.

Knee braces are normally worn when there is already an existing injury, whereas knee sleeves are used for compression, support, and mostly preventive measures.

Knee Braces are made for people who suffer or have suffered a serious injury like: ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament), MCL (Medial collateral ligament), PCL (Posterior cruciate ligament), and other similar injuries. They are usually made of neoprene with additional support such as metallic hinges to support knee during movement. AllyFlex Sports® Patella Stabilizer Knee Brace

While knee braces basically act like a “substitute knee”, knee sleeves on the other hand do not limit or replace the function of a normal knee. Knee sleeves are mainly used for regular knee support to prevent injuries. Knee sleeves are more apt for regular use by athletes in sports and by active people in running or workouts. The use of prophylactic (protective or preventive) knee sleeves is an attempt to reduce the occurrence or severity of injuries to the knee joint ligaments without inhibiting overall knee mobility.

The most highlighted feature in knee sleeve is the compression it provides. Compression restricts muscle oscillation and narrows blood vessels, which translates to less stress on the muscles and faster and more efficient blood flow to and from the knee/leg area. Muscles, ligaments and tendons endure a lot of stress during rigorous workouts.

Efficient blood flow is very important to eliminate the waste produced by the muscles (e.g. lactic acid) and to bring oxygen and necessary nutrients to the muscles to facilitate faster recovery. That means reduced discomfort, pain and swelling in just a matter of days.

The compression also reduces muscle vibration and reduces knee instability, providing the user a more stable foundation that’s very valuable during jumps, twists, and lifts. Lastly, knee sleeves serve as a very helpful aid during warm-ups since it warms and lubricates the joints.

There are many choices of knee sleeves on the market, very few are made of latex-free materials. We have several stand-out latex-free knee sleeves. The stay-put design and high compression of NeoAlly knee sleeves are the best choice for sports and medium to intense workouts. On the other hand, the light-weight Uptofit copper knee sleeve, with its copper rich content and moderate compression, becomes the perfect choice for daily knee protection.

Back Support Braces

Yes. A wearing a lower back belt can help reduce the pressure on the spine which will ease muscle tension and lessen pain.

There are quite a few ways to correct and relieve the back pain, here are the six most effective ways for back pain relief. A lower back brace has recently emerged an effective treatment for lower back pain relief, and can provide support for the spine as it heals following back surgery. Back brace for lower back pain relief is widely used by people with various lower back issues.

If you have lower back pain, you are not alone. According to NIH (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke), about 80 percent of adults experience low back pain at some point in their lifetimes. It is the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work days. In a large survey, more than a quarter of adults reported experiencing low back pain during the past 3 months.

Back support belt provides a variety of benefits to weightlifting athletes or individuals who have a job that requires lifting heavy objects. Back supports help prevent common injuries and strains to the lower back that often occur during heavy lifting. Wearing a lower back belt while performing heavy lifts can lessen the strain on your back, ease existing pain, prevent damage, and encourage proper lifting techniques for better performance.

There are mainly two benefits of using back support belt for heavy lifting: Injury Prevention and Performance Enhancement.

Heavy lifting without proper protection can easily get hurt on the lower back. In fact, Center For Disease Control and Prevention reports that back injuries account for nearly 20 percent of all workrelated injuries. One of the main causes of lower back injury is sprains and strains to the low back. This accounts for most acute back pain individuals experience in their lifetime. Sprains and strains are often caused by overstretching or tearing ligaments, which often occur from lifting an object improperly or something too heavy. Wearing a back support belt for lifting can ease pain for low back sprains and strains while also avoiding further tearing and injury to the ligaments. The back support belt can also be used for preventative purposes while one performs heavy lifts.

The lower back belt can potentially increase performance, allowing individuals who lift competitively to carry more weight while also avoiding injury. Studies have found that wearing a compression back belt while inhaling before lifting heavy objects reduces spine loading, which can prevent further injury and pain of the back both short term and long term. Compressing the lower back during heavy lifts allows for more stability in your abdomen and lower back. This increase in stability will allow your lower back to carry more weight and prevent injury to this area as well.
