Now, don't listen to the naysayers who proclaim, "Running will ruin your knees." Statistically, statement is completely false. Obesity will ruin your knees a lot more quickly than running.
Nevertheless, knee discomfort plagues many runners.
When a knee issue arises, many of us ascribe to the RICE method of rehabilitation: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation.
Over the years, I haven't had trouble with the rest, ice, and elevation components, but I could never find a compression knee sleeve that provided the compression I required without feeling heavy, bulky, or restrictive.
Then this past summer, I tried the Alpha Athletica Compression Knee Sleeve.
It is, by far, the best product I have ever used for my knee. It is lightweight and non-restrictive. It holds its elasticity and is quick-drying. I would recommend this product to athletes participating in any sport.
I did have one problem, however. My wife, in preparation for her first half marathon, injured her knee, and decided to "borrow" my Alpha Athletica Compression Knee sleeve. She has since adopted it as her own.
So, for the Holiday season, the Alpha Athletica Compression Knee Sleeve folks have solved that problem. Use the special promotional code: XMASBOGO, and when you buy one Alpha Athletica Compression Knee Sleeve, you'll receive another absolutely free.
