Hi

I hope this finds everyone well and keeping safe.

I have Arthrtis of my left knee, and I am in constant pain with it although medication has been given by my GP (cream and Tablets), only work for 4 hours at a time.

Can anyone recommend any knee support for this, one of my friends gave me a support which has magnets round the knee part and down each side of the support which can be very warm at times and sweats the knee, but can only put this on for a short time.

Therefore I am looking for another support any recommendation I would appreciate this.

Thanks

    You are best off speaking with your Occupational Therapist or GP as knee supports vary greatly and it may be that you might need a special made to measure one.

    Mike1 has definitely go a point there e referral to a physio might be wise as you have a specific diagnosis.

    When my husband was struggling with his knee (no diagnosis) I got him a support from the pharmacy which he found quite helpful. Things he had overused his knee and it needed a rest which the support gave him.

    I hope you can get some help soon.

    Love
