Advise please on knee supports!
« on: July 21, 2014, 05:03:06 PM »
At the moment Iv got really really bad knee pain and I am stumped on what to do..well when I say knee pain it is a dull ache and nothing sever enough for surgery.. and maybe the doctors will just think I am being a wimp but is stopping me playing sports... So I been looking online and I have read a post made by one my friends who had something similar ( ) and they said knee supports are best. So do knee supports that are help?.. can the compression stop dull aches?

thank you!

You should see and take advice from a physiotherapist or sports physician as there are different types of support. Have you rested the knee adequately, used ice for pain swelling. These go hand in hand with compression
