However, after two weeks of daily use of the Air Relax compression pump, the pain in my knee is greatly GREATLY reduced and the swelling is virtually gone! My leg feels better than it has in 8+ months. I no longer cringe when having to stand up for fear of pain shooting through my knee. And that's just after two weeks. Granted, it wasn't the "overnight miracle" that I was hoping for, but daily consistent use (sometimes 3x a day) has really worked wonders. I love to do a session of "mode A" on pressure level 2, followed immediately by another session on level 3. It's gotten to where I'm sad when it ends because it's so relaxing and feels so good. Great to do right before bed time - I'm positive I'm sleeping better too!
UPDATE: It's been about 6 weeks since I started using the Air Relax and my left knee pain is 100% GONE. Gone, as though my knee was never hurt to begin with. And the swelling in my left foot, which I believe was related to the knee pain, is also GONE. It's just been amazing.
Yes, the unit is expensive, but it has been totally worth it in my case. I don't even use it daily now, maybe 4 times a week, and I still do one session of "mode A" on pressure level 2, followed immediately by another session on level 3. My favorite time to use it is still right before bed, so relaxing! I've even fallen asleep, sitting upright in my chair, while the unit is running! It is by far the best purchase I've ever made.
