Curafen Review

by Emily Jacob (2019-04-05)

Before we prove that knee braces Curafen do work, we want to discuss why they do not. (Read this carefully) If you have an ACL tear, MCL tear, or meniscus tear, you need to think about supporting these particular instabilities. (Bottom line) If you just get a really simple "knee sleeve" that is made from an elastic material, then this is probably not going to support a more unstable injury. Knee sleeves do work for minor knee issues, but not for more serious ones. Remember this. If you have a more serious knee instability, you need to focus on getting the proper knee brace. If you have a ligament tear or a meniscus tear, you need to help protect medial to lateral movements, plus excessive front to back movements at your knee. - What this all means is that you will need a knee brace that includes medial and lateral uprights and a hinge on each side of the knee to help control painful movements. You will still be able to move very well, but when you have a more serious knee injury you need to have a knee brace that will control excessive movements that will further insult your knee. Knee supports can be your new best friend. Do not go to someone that is not a specialist when you are looking to buy one. Moreover, know that "knee sleeves" are for mild knee issues. If you have knee pain then you should rate it on a scale 1-10. If you are above a 5-10, then you seriously need to stay away from what only a knee sleeve can provide. More than likely, this support is going to help, but maybe not enough for a serious injury. Research other knee supports, the descriptions at online sites should describe what each knee support provides. If not, then RUN! Just a word to the wise.
