3M ACE bandages are support wraps designed to provide compression and pain relief while recovering from injuries. The light support and heat retention helps relieve symptoms associated with minor sprains and strains. An ACE bandage is also ideal for relieving arthritis pain. The elastic neoprene material is breathable and flexible, allowing for full movement. 3M wraps and braces improve circulation in areas such as the knee, elbow, wrist, or ankle. Using cold compresses in conjunction with an ACE bandage wrap helps reduce inflammation.
