Bamboo Pro Self-Warming Knee Support
We received the Bamboo Pro™ Self-Warming Knee Support from The Healing Tree ($19.99ARV). This knee support contains Bamboo Charcoal Technology that offers self-warming properties. Other supports do not activate with your body heat. This support does and when it does it restores warmth to your muscles, cartilage and joints. This natural heat increases blood circulation which in turn delivers proteins, nutrients and oxygen to the affected area. It helps to relieve discomfort, achy joints due to aging, enhances muscle performance and recovery. No need to worry about overheating with bamboo charcoal. If you overheat the bamboo charcoal fluctuates in temperature and provides cooling relief. Bamboo Pro™ is a safe and effective, easy to use product. It can be worn all day and night for long-lasting and natural relief.
Both Dan and I have bad knees. His are due to poor care of his body when younger. Mine... well, basically all of my joints are "bad" due to my Ankylosing Spondylitis. Our knee pain is different, this knee wrap greatly helped my knee pain and discomfort. While I had great relief from this product, unfortunately for Dan, the size I received for myself was too small for his much larger knee. I received a Medium knee support and he would probably need a large.
I like that the knee support is thin allowing for each free movement of the knee. It's not too tight on the back of my knee nor has it bunched up. Dan tried a different knee support last year and it seriously bunched up behind his knee making it rather uncomfortable for him. When I first put the knee support on it took some getting used to, it's hard to explain, but it was kind of weird to walk with it on. I've noticed when I walk or even at rest, when my knee is bent it feels warm, but then when I extend my leg making my knee straight or if I lock my knee it feels cool. Weird, cool, odd... something to get used to.
My great grandma was having knee problems when she was living in town here with my grandma so I let her borrow it. She is 90 years old and still walks so I knew as soon as my grandma told me about her knee pain that I needed to let her use this. She needs it more then I do. From what I've gathered she likes the knee support and it does help.
We both greatly enjoy the Bamboo Pro™ Self-Warming Knee Support. After using this product I am definitely interested in trying other products from The Healing Tree. I have also suggested this product to other family members since receiving it and having had used it myself.
