I have only been diagnosed with RA for about 3 months and I used to be an active runner. I have been cleared to continue full duty as a law enforcement officer and in the military and I am required to run two miles twice a year for my PT tests. I have flares mostly in my knees but I have the inflammation under control. Are there any runners out there that know if a brace vs compression is better to use with RA while trying to run on pavement? I do not intend on being an avid runner as I once was but I do need to train at least once a week to be able to pass these runs. Or is it recommended not use use anything at all? I don't want another flare but since I have started running these past few weeks I find my knees feel better after 9 months of rest due to flares.
