~ copper knee supports ~

Posted by .harp player @amberpep, May 30 11:37am

I often wear a tight stretchable support on my knee (the one with the replacement and revision) and I keep seeing ads for these "Tommy Copper" copper infused soft braces. I'm very curious to see if they work, but I wanted to check out with you all first. Have any of you had one of these, by any brand, and if so, how did it work? Did you notice a difference from the regular supportive elastic braces?
Thanks for your input.

@amberpep I too have tried copper infused supports for meniscus tears in both of my knees. I have fibromyalgia & a few other conditions that cause unbearable pain/swelling. I have been losing weight but not fast enough. Both of my knees get alot of swelling/edema in both knees. In my own opinion I have tried several types of different styles of knee braces but in my experience please do urself a huge favor avoid beliefs that everything you see on TV work's. I think your Pain mgmt Dr or orthopedic Dr. Or. Physical Therapist can best advise you as to what type of brace is suited best for your knees or other parts of the body. Always check w/your Dr. Before experimenting with these types of products. I bought the knee sleeve & got the pair of gloves without finger tips also copper infused. They get very hot on hands & knee & I did not find much releif from wearing them. But we are all different & some have other health issue's associated or not that in turn could get worse from wearing the wrong type of braces. So my advice please always check with your Doctor's 1st.
I hope you feel better. I check for different products on a site I get newsletters/emails for different chronic Pain. Or related products on a website called : The Alternative Pain Treatment Directory. This is a website that has helped me understand more about my own Chronic Pain & how to help myself deal with it all. They have item's for all sorts of stuff from vitamins to CBD & even TENS machines & other types of treatments & providers by city & state. I wish you all the best. I hope you feel your post was a great question, I'm sure you & I are not the only ppl who ha've similar issue's & questions about these types of product's. Good luck.

Thank you for your response. I don't fall for all the gimmicks, I listened to my PT and did get a tens unit. My doctor said to try to slow down with the walking and elevate my leg.

Hi there …. well, you just saved me $30 and I appreciate it. I'm glad I wrote before I got one. I gone through the PT several times and they used a TENS machine on me each time (I loved how it felt and almost fell asleep). Thanks so much. abby

Are you all good meteorologists? I know I am …. I always can tell the day before it's to rain, that it's coming. It's sort of funny. My doctor told me that when the barometric pressure drops the flesh pressure around the knee joint replacement increases, and that's what causes the pain. Amazing.

Everyone is so different! I notice absolutely nothing with regard to my replaced knees and the weather!
