Knee injuries and knee pain are extremely common in athletes as well as individuals who suffer from arthritis and obesity. There are many factors that can lead to knee injuries and knee pain. Compression for knee pain is a common remedy to treat and relieve knee pain while speeding the recovery process from knee injuries and surgeries. To learn more about general knee pain, visit our orthopedic resource library. BraceAbility offers a wide variety of knee compression sleeves and supports for knee pain in men, women, children, plus-size individuals, athletes, and more.
The neoprene material and compression element of the knee sleeve is designed to relieve pain while also protecting the knee from future injury and pain. Through compression, the neoprene compression knee sleeve increases blood flow while also reducing pain and swelling in the knee joint. Athletic knee compression sleeves are very popular with athletes and active individuals because they prevent future injury and pain in the knees while allowing them to remain active with little to no effect on their performance.
Athletic knee compression sleeves are available at BraceAbility for athletes who wish to remain active with knee pain or avoid future knee pain or injury. The best knee compression sleeves for athletes have a snug fit to increase blood flow to reduce pain and swelling in the knee joints. This compression knee sleeve is great for athletes and active people with any kind of knee injury and pain.
Post surgery knee compression sleeves are very popular for pre and post-surgical procedures performed on the knee joints. It is likely that your doctor will recommend wearing a compression knee sleeve before and after knee surgery for the purpose of pain relief and to reduce swelling. For athletes, it can be very challenging to bounce back to their normal routine and remain active after knee surgery if the knee is unable to achieve its normal full range of motion. With the help of compression pre-knee surgery, swelling is reduced before surgery, making it easier to regain muscle strength and avoid swelling post-surgery.
Compression after knee surgery is very important because it helps to increase blood circulation to the injured knee joint. Blood circulation helps to aid and quicken the recovery process. Therefore, the more snug fit of the compression knee sleeve, the better in terms of pain relief and healing. After surgical procedures in the knee, your joints tend to be very vulnerable and weak. The compression knee sleeve protects the knee from further injury and damage, allowing your joints and muscles to regain their strength. A common surgical procedure performed on the knee is repairing of the ACL from an ACL tear.

Overweight and obese individuals often suffer from knee pain and knee injuries. This is because every pound of body weight yields five pounds of force onto the knee. Therefore, even a few extra pounds can put a lot of pressure and stress on your knee joints. Learn more about how obesity and knee pain are connected by reading our blog post, Knee Pain and Obesity. Being overweight or obese can also increase your chances of arthritis, specifically knee osteoarthritis. This type of arthritis wears away the knee’s cartilage. Those few extra pounds can also cause existing arthritis to worsen more rapidly over time. There are also knee compression sleeves for arthritis available. View all of BraceAbility's knee braces and sleeves for knee osteoarthritis.
Besides exercise and better nutrition, wearing a plus size compression knee sleeve is a great fix for knee pain and injuries associated with obesity or being overweight. Compression sleeves for large men help take the pressure of the knee and relieve pain while restoring the function of damaged knee joints. Plus size knee compression sleeves have also been found to be effective in improving the functional capacity of your knee joints, making it easier for overweight or obese individuals to be active and strengthen their knees. BraceAbility offers knee compression sleeves in extra large sizes for plus size, large knees. Sizes XL, XXL, 3XL and 4XL knee compression sleeves are available. This plus size compression knee sleeve is a great plus size compression knee sleeve for various sources of knee pain.
A Meniscus tear is an extremely common knee injury in athletes and older individuals who are active. In fact, it is one of the most frequently occurring cartilage injuries of the knee, often caused by contact sports and athletic performance in general. The meniscus cartilage of the knees serves to stabilize the knee joint, protecting the bones from wear and tear. Therefore, a meniscus tear can be extremely painful. Often times, individuals who tear their meniscus also tear their ACL or have another knee injury at the same time.
To speed the recovery process, a knee compression sleeve for a torn meniscus is often recommended. Compression is suggested for a torn meniscus to control swelling, reduce pain, and quicken the recovery process. Wearing the knee meniscus compression sleeve will also allow athletes to recover faster and return to performing sooner. Stretching and strengthening exercises are also recommended to help reduce stress to your knee after you’ve torn your meniscus. Wearing a knee compression sleeve will protect the knee while doing these stretches and exercises, allowing you to be active again with reduced pain. BraceAbility offers a wide variety of knee brace and sleeves for a torn meniscus.
Knee pain and injuries are extremely common in runners. The most common of these is known as Runner’s Knee. Runner’s knee isn’t a specific injury, but a general term to describe knee pain and injuries caused by running or any activity requiring repetitive bending of the knee. Running too much, misalignment of the bones, hypermobile feet, weakness in thigh muscles, and much more can cause runner’s knee. To learn more about runner’s knee, read about it in our orthopedic conditions library. BraceAbility offers a wide variety of braces, sleeves, and supports for runners.
Resting and icing your knee are both very important for treatment of runner’s knee. It is also important to compress your knee. Compression knee braces for running are available at BraceAbility to give your knees the extra support they need while also reducing pain by increasing blood circulation. The knee compression sleeve for running can be worn while running, allowing full range of motion in the knee joint while also avoiding any further injury or pain.
