This knee band is a simple patella tendon strap that uses a specially shaped, molded pad to compress the area directly below the kneecap without uncomfortable constriction of blood flow to the lower limb. Wearing a knee strap like this one directly under the patella (kneecap) takes pressure off the joint, dramatically reducing pain caused by chondromalacia, tendonitis, osgood schlatters disease, runner's knee, jumper's knee, patello-femoral syndrome, and other knee conditions affecting the patella. This discreet knee band features a solid tubular neoprene pad that applies pressure to the patella tendon and is manufactured from premium grade latex-free soft loop neoprene - so you can wear it comfortably all day, and even while playing sports.
A buckle and Velcro closure make this knee band for tendonitis and other conditions easy to adjust and put on. The fact that this band for the knee is adjustable means one can tighten it to an ideal amount of pressure. Being able to adjust and tighten your knee strap to just the right amount of pressure is crucial in order to effectively ease the pain. So a sized knee strap like the one is typically much more effective than a universal or one-size-fits-all knee strap.
This knee band gets the job done when it comes to addressing pain, plus it fits comfortably beneath the kneecap. The soft knee band tacks down the patella tendon, which can help with pain stemming from Osgood Schlatter disease, patellofemoral syndrome, patella tendonitis, jumpers’ knee, and other patella disorders like Chondromalacia.
Chondromalacia patella is the inflammation of the underside of the patella. This condition usually affects younger individuals who actively engage in sports, but it is not uncommon for older adults who tend to overwork their knees. This disorder commonly denotes the irritation of the underside of the kneecap. The most common sports that bring about this condition include the following: soccer, gymnastics, cycling, rowing, basketball, volleyball, and snowboarding. The good news is that treatment of chondromalacia patella doesn’t involve surgery. Using a good chondromalacia patella brace like this one can effectively provide relief from this condition.
Osgood Schlatters is a condition that affects growing children. With this condition, the strap helps by tacking down the patellar tendon and distributing force away from the tender area, allowing healing to take place and relieving pain. The many sizes and adjustable fit of the support also make it a good knee strap for children. And conservative treatment is usually a preferable choice to Osgood Schlatter's surgery. BraceAbility offers a number of braces and straps for treating Osgood Schlatter's disease.
