A few weeks ago, I read the article linked below. As a guy with a bad knee that will need to be replaced in the future, I was intrigued. I went right out and bought a thin compression sleeve that I could wear all the time. In the three weeks since, I have had minimal knee pain. Even the excruciating pain from standing after sitting for extended periods has lessened. I have been wearing the sleeve 90% of the time taking it off for short periods of time and occasionally over night. Give it a try on your sore joints.
