Do Compression Sleeves Work for Wrist Pain?2021-02-11T14:15:31-05:00

Do Compression Sleeves Help Arthritis?2021-02-11T14:09:23-05:00

Yes. Compression sleeves can help arthritis. 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.

How Do I Choose Knee Sleeves?2021-02-11T13:54:05-05:00

There are 4 things to consider before you choose knee sleeves: Fit, Material, Construction, Color. Check out our Compression Sleeve Buying Guide below.

Buying Guide: How To Choose Knee Sleeves – 4 Things to Consider 

  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 you choose knee sleeves that are too loose, they won’t provide enough compression and will slide down your leg.
  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 for a knee sleeve. 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.

How Does A Patella Brace Work?2021-02-11T14:02:12-05:00

Patellar stabilizers and patella tracking braces provide compression all around the knee that ‘lifts’ the knee into proper position. The stabilizing knee brace also provides added support all around the kneecap.

What Is The Best Brace for Patellar Dislocation?2021-02-11T14:01:08-05:00

If you want the best brace for patellar dislocation, try the stabilizing patella knee brace. This patella brace supports the knee and is very breathable.

There are two types of patella knee braces: Open and Closed. Either will help the knee heal from patellar dislocation. Here’s the difference.

  1. Open patella knee 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.
  2. 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.

What Is The Difference Between A Knee Brace And A Knee Sleeve?2021-02-11T13:58:31-05:00

It’s important to understand the difference between a knee brace and a knee sleeve. Basically, knee sleeves are for everyday support, injury prevention and pain reduction. Knee braces are for existing injuries. This guide will help you get the right knee support.

Knee Support Guide

  • Purpose of a Knee Brace – Support for an existing injury
  • Purpose of a Knee Sleeve – Regular knee support, injury prevention, pain reduction

What Is A Knee Brace?

Knee braces basically act like a “substitute knee.” They’re made for people who suffer or have suffered a serious injury like:

  • ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament)
  • MCL (Medial collateral ligament)
  • PCL (Posterior cruciate ligament)
  • Other similar injuries

Most knee braces are made of neoprene and sometimes have metallic hinges to support the knee during movement. Check out our AllyFlex Sports® Patella Stabilizer Knee Brace.

What Is A Knee Sleeve?

Knee sleeves do not limit or replace the function of a normal knee. They’re mainly used for regular knee support to prevent injuries. The benefits of wearing a knee sleeve include: compression for better blood flow, daily support, mobility, increased stability, and joint lubrication.

Benefits of Knee Sleeves

  • Compression. The most highlighted feature in a knee sleeve is the compression it provides. Compression restricts muscle oscillation and narrows blood vessels. This means less stress on the muscles and faster, more efficient blood flow to and from the knee area.
  • Better Blood Flow. Efficient blood flow is very important to eliminating the waste produced by the muscles (e.g. lactic acid) and to bring oxygen and necessary nutrients to the muscles. This process facilitates a faster recovery and results in reduced discomfort, pain, and swelling in just a matter of days.
  • Daily Support. Knee sleeves are more suitable for regular use in running, workouts and other sports.
  • Maintain Mobility. Use protective knee sleeves to help reduce the occurrence or severity of injuries to the knee joint ligaments without inhibiting overall knee mobility.
  • Increase Stability. The compression also reduces muscle vibration and knee instability. This gives you a more stable foundation that’s helpful during jumps, twists, and lifts.
  • Warms & Lubricates Joints. Knee sleeves serve as a very helpful aid during warm-ups since it warms and lubricates the joints.

Do Back Braces Prevent Injuries?2021-02-18T15:40:07-05:00

Wearing a back brace for heavy lifting can ease pain for low back sprains and strains. A back support belt can also help avoid further tearing or injury to the ligaments.

Heavy lifting without proper protection can easily hurt the lower back. In fact, Centers For Disease Control and Prevention reports that back injuries account for nearly 20 percent of all work-related injuries. Sprains and strains are the main causes of lower back injury. They contribute to most of the acute back pain that people experience. Sprains and strains are often caused by overstretching or tearing ligaments, which often occurs when lifting an object improperly or something that is too heavy.

Does A Back Brace Help Enhance Weightlifting Performance?2021-02-18T15:40:19-05:00

Yes. A back brace can potentially enhance weightlifting performance. A lower back belt allows people who lift competitively to carry more weight and avoid injury.

Studies have found that wearing a compression back belt while inhaling before lifting heavy objects reduces spine loading. This can prevent further back injury and pain.

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 the area.
