Do straps help?
Had X-ray on knee over 4weeks ago which has not been reviewed yet😏. Am assuming it is arthritis as I have arthritis in both ankles. It is very painful at the moment and I have started wearing a strap but not sure if it’s doing any good or not. Getting frustrated now as it’s stopping me doing things and don’t seem to be getting anywhere with a diagnosis☹️. Does strapping the joint help? Many thanks!
Welcome to the versus arthritis forum.
You have arthritis in your ankles and await the results of a knee scan. You are experiencing pain and have tried using a strap but it’s not clear as to whether or not this is helping. You’d like to hear from any forum members who have tried strapping and whether it helped.
Whilst you await some feedback you may find these links of use:
Also, here’s a link to a recent discussion which mentions knee straps, you may wish to join the discussion:
I hope you receive some useful input.
