The Shock Doctor Knee Compression Sleeve With Open Patella Stabilizer

I was looking for a good quality knee support for quite some time and when I had the opportunity to put the Shock Doctor Knee Compression Sleeve With Open Patella Stabilizer to test, I welcomed the chance. The knee compression sleeve has a pre-curved compression fit sleeve, designed with an open patella coverage and helps to provide support for minor pain, sprains and strains thereby allowing for daily use over an extended period of time.

I have had issues with my knees for nearly a decade now. I have been to multiple doctors and orthopaedics. Tests and x-rays were taken, but nothing has been diagnosed so far. They think it is some mechanical issue with my knees and I have been told to manage the pain with painkillers and to stay active. My knee pain has still not been linked to my palindromic rheumatism, though I personally feel it could be a manifestation of PR. If I tend to walk for long or climb up(even over a slight incline), my knees start to hurt and eventually lock leaving me in excruciating pain. Even a slight movement in such a scenario hurts. The pain eventually subsides and the knee is back to normal. Due to the knee problem, I do not take part in any strenuous activities which puts pressure on my knees. I stopped my aerobic classes because squats and other exercises which involve repeated knee movements were making my pain worse. But I do keep active with regular walking at a comfortable pace. And even at these times I feel the need for a knee sleeve that will provide some support and comfort.

The Knee Compression Sleeve with Open Patella has been working well for me. I use it when myself and Mr.H go out for long walks or when I am exercising at home. The compression sleeve has a good fit, offers good support and because of the open kneecap design it reduces pressure through the kneecap. The sleeve doesn't restrict normal knee movement and doesn't bunch up or twist. It stays in position as well without slipping. I think the key is selecting the right size and fit. The Shock Doctor Knee Compression Sleeve comes in 5 sizes(small, medium, large, XL and XXL) so you should be able to find one that fits you perfectly.

Key features of the Knee Compression Sleeve with Open Patella:
  1. Anatomical pre-curved design that provides enhanced fit, comfort and performance.
  2. Breathable mesh window that provides cooling and comfortable full-range of motion flex.
  3. N-TEX™ air flow Neoprene that provides moisture wicking compression for therapeutic warmth and healing.
  4. LYCRA® binding for comfort and long lasting wear.
  5. Convenient finger tabs for easy grip pull when fitting.
If you need protection and support for mild knee pain or sprain or knee weakness, then the Shock Doctor Knee Compression Sleeve With Open Patella is for you. It is ideal for short term use if you have an injured knee and perfect for long term use for an on-going knee condition like mine.
