Knee Pain On Long Flights Solved With Ace Bandage

Just in (to Hawaii) from the East Coast. In the past few years, my left knee has become excruciating on long flights from fluid accumulating due to a combination of long periods of sitting erect and (perhaps) lower air pressure. Yesterday, I wrapped my knee in an ace bandage (not tightly, just enough to press in slightly) moments before getting on the plane in Boston. Worked like a million bucks — hardly a twinge of pain the whole flight. (I know, off-topic, but perhaps one day someone will Google this article and save themselves some pain.)
