Knee pain affects most people at some time in their lives. Wearing a knee sleeve, such as the IMAK Compression Arthritis Knee Sleeve A2015 can bring relief 24 hours a day.
Knees take a lot of strain every day. Even without exercise, our knees are put through the mill on a daily basis and we suffer the consequences. In the United States, there are over 700,000 knee replacements done each year and this is expected to rise to around 3.48 million procedures by the year 2030. In Australia, there was an increase of 88% between the years 2003 and 2014. It therefore makes sense to take care of your knees and protect them from injury and re-injury.
The knee is bound by an intricate system of ligaments, tendons, cartilage and muscle and, as such, is prone to wear and tear and injury. Our knees absorb one and a half our body weight with every step, so it perfectly understandable that knees develop problems over time, such as osteoarthritis and various major and minor injuries.
Arthritis is inflammation of the joints. It can affect one joint or multiple joints. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis, with different causes and treatment methods. Two of the most common types are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
The symptoms of arthritis usually develop over time, but they may also appear suddenly. Arthritis is most commonly seen in adults over the age of 65, but it can also develop in children, teens, and younger adults. Arthritis is more common in women than men and in people who are overweight.

How to put on the IMAK Compression Arthritis Knee Sleeve
Fold over the Tri-band at the top of the knee sleeve, so the Tri-band is on the outside of the sleeve. Slip the sleeve over the foot and gently pull it up the leg. Position it about 4 inches above the knee and then unfold the Tri-band, so it’s securely kept in place.
