    Knee sleeve for just walking?

    45 years old, 6', 225LBs, wanna get under 200.
    About 5 years ago my doc said...your knee jiggles around a little, get a brace for jogging.

    Well...no idea where it is and I'm going to start walking again. No jogging...yet...I'm in awful shape and just want to start walking, on my Sole F63....maybe with some incline here and there.

    I remember the brace I had was either comfy and wouldn't stay in place, or it stayed in place and was TIGHT!
    I might head to WalMart or Kinneys and pick up something on the less expensive side...anything good I should look for and do I really need it just for walking?

    Unless you're having pain, I would not wear a knee brace as a preventative measure. Walking shouldn't hurt your knees, but don't overdo it at first if you're poor health. Losing weight is going to take the pressure off of your knees and strengthening your leg muscles through squats, lunges, etc will help you avoid pain. I would never start jogging unless it's something you love. It's hard on your joints and the benefits are debatable at best.

    Knee sleeves may not give you the support your looking for.
    Maybe see an orthopedic doctor for a more accurate assessment.
    Knee sleeves though can keep the knees warm with moist heat which may help some with knee discomfort.

    Did he give a slightly more medical diagnosis along with the jiggling statement? You prob want to find out structurally what the issue was.

    I suggest you actually start walking first and see how you feel. I don't think it's a big deal if you want to wear some sort of knee sleeve or support, but since that was 5 years ago you prob want to see how it feels without one (and see an ortho if necessary), before deciding on exactly what, if any, support you need.
