Hi! Any thoughts on knee sleeves? I injured my right knee a few weeks ago and it's been causing me a bit of pain. I mentioned it when I was at urgent care for shingles (no fun!). The Dr noted swelling on my knee and recommended getting a knee sleeve. Well . . . My knee feels so strong and supported! Is this how a knee is supposed to feel? Now I want one for my other knee! But there are problems, too. First, wearing it is causing my hip and back to hurt. Second, I don't really want to become dependent on the thing. Does anyone else have experience with using a knee sleeve or ideas to help my knee recover so I can work on strengthening it? I'd love it if my knees felt like this naturally!
