Osteoarthritis or Arthritis Pain - Effective Pain Relief from Active650

Who does Osteoarthritis (OA) affect?

In a nutshell; anyone. However, as it is a degenerative disease, symptoms are more likely to become noticeable as a person gets older. It can be due to genes, developmental issues, nutritional deficiencies, mechanical reasons (overuse, trauma) or just general wear and tear at the joint.

What is Osteoarthritis?

What is Arthritis or Osteoarthritis? As a person ages their cartilage becomes less resilient. As the cartilage degrades it leads to less protection of the bones in the joint space.

As joints are almost constantly moving this leads to increased wear and tear and exacerbates the problem. The space between the bones decreases and in some cases bony outgrowths can occur (osteophytes).

Symptoms of Osteoarthritis

Symyptoms of Arthritis or Osteoarthritis and Treatment The main symptom of Osteoarthritis is pain. A loss of mobility, stiffness at the joint and inflammation are all common signs but, as with anything, it is normally the pain that spurs a sufferer to seek treatment.

Pain is often described as being like a ‘burning sensation’ in the surrounding soft tissue. Many sufferers complain that cold and wet weather make the symptoms worse.

How does an Active650 Full Knee support help?

Treatment of Arthritis or Osteoarthritis Knee Pain
An Active650 Full Knee Support provides exceptional heat retention, improving blood flow and keeping the cold at bay.
An article in the Arthritis Today magazine quoted the American College of Rheumatology on the recommended management of arthritis as stating, “The use of lightweight knee braces may correct misaligned bones of the knee joint and reduce pressure on the soft tissues.”

The article went on to say that the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons supports the use of knee braces for Osteoarthritis, stating that braces, “may provide significant reduction in pain”.
If you are going to seek the proven benefits of a knee support you will want to be looking at one that is the most comfortable to wear. Designed by orthopaedic surgeons who were fed up with conventional supports slipping and bunching behind the knee, the Full Knee Support has been designed with comfort and practicality in mind.

The superior stretch allows expansion that moves with the wearer, without causing restriction, and contraction that provides superior support with a non-slip guarantee.

Every Muscle, Every Body!
