Can Osgood Schlatter disease in adults occur?
Often referred to as the growing pains of the knees, pain associated with Osgood Schlatter disease typically goes away once the adolescent stops growing. Without treatment, some kids are left with a permanent bump below their kneecap. In rare circumstances, adults may continue to experience painful Osgood Schlatter symptoms caused by residual bone fragments around the patellar tendon.
If you are experiencing a bony or painful below your knee, or knee pain while kneeling, you may be experiencing Osgood Schlatter symptoms for adults. Depending on your pain levels, check out our full line of Osgood Schlatter knee braces

How This Infrapatellar Strap Helps With Chondromalacia
There are a number of reasons this knee band is a popular choice for a number of the knee joint and patella problems you may be experiencing, including runner’s knee, also known as chondromalacia.
Knee pain from running is such a common occurrence that the term “runner’s knee” has become a commonplace way of describing a number of conditions that cause knee pain, and often pain around the front of the knee. Wearing a chondromalacia knee brace like this one directly under the patella takes pressure off the joint, dramatically reducing pain that you are experiencing during your daily activities. To avoid the pain of runner’s knee, as well as additional overuse of your knee, this strap is one to stabilize and provide constant support and compression.

THE ADJUSTABILITY IS SO IMPORTANT SINCE MY LEGS ARE SMALL
I AM 83 YEARS OLD WITH SEVERE ARTHRITIS FROM NECK TO TOES. WEARING THIS SUPPORT ALLOWS ME TO GET OUT AND WALK MORE COMFORTABLY, ALONG WITH ANKLE SUPPORTS AND COPPER FIT BACK SUPPORT. SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE A MUMMY ALL WRAPPED UP BUT IT'S WORTH IT.
I used this knee band hiking the Appalachian trail. I used it every day for five months. There were a few days when I would forget to put the brace on and after about 2 hours of hiking my knee would start to hurt. I highly recommend this knee brace.
Great Comfortable Knee Strap!
This knee strap was awesome! The padding on the inside of the band itself was very soft and comfortable. It is big enough to help and small enough to not be annoying. It really helped my runners/jumpers knee! Thanks!
