Braces Galore!

This looks pretty strange, but it’s called the Turtl travel pillow, and it is so comfortable! I have a couple of pillows to give me neck support, but they are the traditional travel pillows. This one has the support in the front, or to the side if you prefer. I was considering a neck brace until I see the doctor (I have no idea what the hold up is). But was afraid of injuring myself further. This seemed a nice compromise, and I have had a lot less pain!

I found these knee sleeves. Available in 3 sizes, they come in all four colours. Naturally, I bought the first set, made sure they fit, bought the second set.

What I like about these is they don’t have any specific compression seams on them. Most of the items I found have seams along them designed to support your patella and offer extra support and compression. I don’t need that, and I find extra seams tend to bother me. Plus the extra pressure tends to slide my knee out of place.

$16 Amazon.ca 4, one of each colour.

I bought two of these elbow sleeves, similar to the knee sleeves, they have no stitching on them. Unfortunately, they are too small for my fat arms. I’ve ordered two in extra large, they should be here Friday, even though the guide suggests medium. Braces are tough to fit. I’m 5’8″ and 193 and I just get the biggest in everything. I actually have fairly slim legs, but I guess with swelling etc. And the fact I’m not wearing this for merely a workout, this must make a difference.

I have a couple of braces for overnight for my wrist, and a hard brace for my arms, but I’m thinking of a soft brace for my wrists, as they get so sore.

One of the advertisements had a waist trainer for back pain. I was wondering if that would have any value at all. It was a legit brace company, and didn’t look like a fake trainer like the Instagram world wears. I’m not sure. I wonder how my stomach would react. My abdomen, my digestive system.
