Benefits of Knee Compression Sleeves: From Running to Arthritis

There are several benefits to living a healthy, active lifestyle. An active lifestyle means improved wellness, plus a longer, more satisfying life. But as anyone who lives an active lifestyle likely knows, staying fit isn’t always easy. That’s why you need a knee compression sleeve: providing knee pain relief how you need it, when you need it.

Picture this: you’re on a run, when you get hit with a painful sensation in one or both of your knees. Even if you remember to stretch and drink lots of water, sometimes you can’t avoid injury. Or can you?

What is a Knee Sleeve?

A knee compression sleeve is, at its simplest, a material that fits around your knee. Knee sleeves offer firm knee support that may help decrease knee pain.

Many knee sleeves on the market are scratchy or rough—but not here at Kinship Comfort Brands. We make our knee sleeves with a comfortable microfiber nylon. This reliable fabric stays in place, while fighting against sweat and unwanted moisture.

Knee compression sleeves work by promoting blood circulation. This may help reduce swelling during exercise or physical activity. The firm compression on your knee joint provides that bit of extra support you didn’t know you needed.

What are the Benefits of Knee Sleeves?

So you understand how a knee sleeve works—but is it worth it? We want you to make your decision with confidence. We’ll go over several benefits of knee sleeves, so you can decide what’s right for you.

Reduces Knee Pain During Physical Activity

Committing to an active lifestyle has a plethora of long-term benefits. Improved physical wellness is one of these benefits. Yet in the short-term, the process may be more painful than it is rewarding.

That’s right: working out hurts, especially if you’re trying something new. Although some aches and pains are pivotal to muscle growth, extreme joint pain or knee pain is never the goal.

With a knee sleeve, you may experience less pain while being active. This is thanks to the extra knee support and stability that’s applied to your knee joints. A decrease in pain can help you work out faster, longer, and harder than ever before.

Helps Manage Arthritis Symptoms

Some people think that arthritis only occurs in elderly or unhealthy individuals. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. Arthritis can develop at any age, and some forms of arthritis have no determined cause.

Whether you’re young and spry or old and wise, arthritis could impact you and your health. Luckily, you can use our knee sleeves for arthritis.

Arthritis flare-ups (a period of worsened symptoms), happen after overuse or overexertion. Using a knee sleeve while working out may help prevent a flare-up. Some have found that sleeves also provide general relief for their day-to-day arthritis symptoms.

Considering using our knee sleeves for arthritis pain? Give our sleeves a try! If you’re looking for arthritis pain relief and knee support that’s easy to use and affordable, it’s definitely worth a shot.

Prevents Injury While Working Out

Working out is an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Staying fit can help increase your physical, mental, and emotional health. But you know what doesn’t help your physical, mental, and emotional health? Injuries. We all want to avoid injury while living an active lifestyle, but how? Knee sleeves are a great place to start.

You can use knee compression sleeves for running, walking, hiking, biking, and more. That’s right: the opportunities keep on coming. If you’ll be straining your knee, that’s a great indicator that you could use a knee sleeve!

There are many ways that knee compression sleeves may help prevent injury during workouts. First, knee compression sleeves provide knee joint support while you’re active. Second, knee compression sleeves promote blood circulation. Better blood circulation lets your knee receive more natural, nourishing lubrication. Questions on how to find the right graduated compression? We’ve got the answers.

Increases Stability While Running

Do you consider yourself a runner? Or do you hope to start running sometime soon? Whatever your level of expertise is, you likely know how strenuous running can be.

Luckily, using knee compression sleeves for running comes with a host of potential benefits. We’ve already been over how sleeves help decrease the odds of pain and injury. But that’s not the only plus. Knee compression sleeves are known to promote improved stability while working out. This is particularly handy for runners, who have to keep their pace and direction in mind at all times.

Better stability also means better control while running. More control? Less likely to sustain an injury. The positives keep on coming!

Can a Knee Sleeve Give Me Enough Support After a Serious Knee Injury?

Recovering from a knee injury is a serious undertaking. Compression may help alleviate pain, improve your range of motion, and support the joint during physical therapy. Our sleeves provide 20-30 mmHg of firm compression support. This could be just what your knee needs on your recovery journey! Ask your doctor or physical therapist when you can wear a knee compression sleeve after a meniscus tear or other injury. Every situation is unique and they’re your best resource for advice pertaining to your injury. Ice therapy can be great for knee injuries too. Have you read Ice Therapy Tips & Tricks? Check it out!

How to Wear a Knee Sleeve Properly for Exercise and Support

Compression sleeves can help people reduce pain and regain a full range of motion. But can you wear knee sleeves all day? Are there any risks of compression treatment? Our sleeves promote increased blood flow. This is a good thing in most situations, but it can cause problems when the sleeve is too tight.

It’s always important to pick a sleeve that fits. And always best to seek the advice of a licensed medical professional if you’re dealing with a serious injury. Check our sizing chart to find the right sleeve for you. Or get in touch! We’re always happy to help with sizing questions.
