Re: Synvisc injections

Mine are by Futuro which I found at CVS. I was looking for that or the same one's made by Ace which I found at Walgreens. They are simple pull on braces with a hole for the kneecap. The sides have flexible plastic or thin metal strips. My right knee, which needs the TKR, needs the compression and comfort of the knee brace/wrap. I have a better brace I got from a prior doctor but it's harder to get on and off and not comfortable to sit down with it on.
