These devices can be extremely helpful in certain conditions, especially with joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries and tears. However they aren't particularly helpful in cases of panosteitis, as there is no injury and no structures in need of support, it's just an inflammation of the bone, and compressing it may actually increase the pain.
Only treatment necessary in these cases is occasional short term treatment with NSAIDs at times of the exacerbation of the symptoms (pain, limping).
