Our Performance™ knee sleeves are extremely comfortable and can be worn on a daily basis to help you recover faster from knee pain, and fatigue. These knee sleeves keep your patella in place and your knee ligaments stable. The 4-way compression fabric provides adequate compression without restricting your movements during all types of activities.
What is a knee compression sleeve?
Knee sleeves are stretchy bands of fabric that provide warmth and compression to the knee. The warmth of the compression increases blood flow to the knee, improving control, support, and stability.
Knee compression sleeves are different from knee braces, which are used to protect an already injured knee.
The purpose of knee compression sleeves is to reduce swelling, minimize pain, and provide support, while the purpose of knee braces is to limit movement and allow for healing.
How do knee compression sleeves work?
The purpose of knee compression sleeves is to prevent future injuries or damage to the knee. In the case of severe instability or injuries, knee sleeves are not sufficient, and a knee brace may be recommended by your doctor. Knee compression sleeves, however, can help to:
Improves blood flow and reduces pain by providing compression.
Aid in the recovery process by preventing the loss of body heat.
Enhance sense of stability
Increase proprioception - the ability to feel a joint's position
Increase your range of motion.
As a result, your synovial membrane receives a steady supply of oxygen and nutrients, while synovial fluid lubricates the joint.
By wearing knee compression sleeves, you can strengthen your knee muscles, ligaments, and tendons through exercise.
The Benefits of Wearing Knee Sleeves:
Support and Control
This is particularly relevant if you’re active or into sports. These activities can put a lot of pressure on your knee joints and a compression sleeve can help align and support the different parts of your knee, allowing it to perform better and protecting it from injury.
A knee compression sleeve also compresses the knee, which increases the temperature of the joint. This helps increase blood flow and boost healing after a knee injury.
Arthritis is one of the most common causes of chronic knee pain, and it can negatively affect every aspect of your daily life. Studies have shown that wearing a compression sleeve can help to reduce your pain levels, allowing you to resume your daily activities in comfort. Compression sleeves can also help minimize pain after injury.

BOOST YOUR PERFORMANCE: Our knee brace optimizes performance during and after activity by preventing potential injury and enhancing performance for high-intensity workouts, training, sports & exercise.

This is pretty customizable for support. My knee pain occurs when the weight comes off which isn't good at all. However, I can wear this for a day whenever I aggravate my knee and the pain goes away for several weeks even if I don't wear it, which is interesting. Of course, depends on what type of issue you have.
I instantly felt relief, support. I had just injured my knee for the first time and was in absolute agony. My wife ordered the knee sleeves and I cried because of how they helped/gave me confidence to walk, to start my road to recovery on day 1. I would recommend it to everyone in need of knee support.
Good support for serious knee problems.
My knee was very swollen from a fall. It felt better as soon as the compression sleeve was on it. I ordered a size small according to the size chart and it fits well - snug but not too tight. It really helps with walking to have it on.
It helped a lot for support & to reduce any pain after running. Only thing was that I should have probably ordered a bigger size since it was a tad too tight.
Bought for hubby he absolutely loves them. Enough support without leaving indentations. He’s run the gamut of knee braces & likes these the best. This is his 2nd pair in about 3 yrs so they hold up pretty good.
