I have tried other bands, somewhat because I want to keep my achy knee from getting an worse. I like these bands because of the "bump" that is intended to hold pressure in the right place. Tobe honest, I'm not sure if the bands are really helping but I don't think it can hurt to wear them on long mountain runs of 20+ miles. My only negative is that the hard plastic piece through which the strap passes can cause some bruising. (I bruise very easily. The bruising doesn't hurt but looks ugly.)
I suffer from a torn meniscus and arthritis. I’ve been wearing itBandz regularly. I seem to be noticing a little less pain now after a couple weeks. Hoping for better results.
Only wore a few days. No complaints
Ease a lot of my knee pain, especially when worn while jogging.
I’ve had terrible knees for years, to the point where I was told I may need a knee replacement. My aunt recommended I try itBandz, which I initially was hesitant to do. Once I tried them I could do all the excersises that used to cause me excruciating pain! These bands changed my ability to work out, highly recommend!!!
I already have a pair of Itbandz and I love them. I wanted my son to have the full benefit of knowing how much they could help him so I ordered these for him. He has problems with both of his knees and these make a great difference in his mobility.
I absolutely love my ItBand! Can’t even feel it when it’s on and super comfortable. No pain since my knee surgery and my kneecap feels supported perfectly. Thinking about getting the blue one too....
Good support they help alot
Bought 2 bands in preparation for a week long vacation that would be filled with a huge amount of walking, which I knew would be nearly impossible with osteoarthritis in both of my knees. I wore the bands every day, and was quite impressed with the level of comfort and support. No, they did not magically cure my knee pain, but I was very satisfied with the reduction in the amount of pain and swelling I experienced. I whole-heartedly believe that I would have never made it through all the fun without my itBandz!
This really help some of the pain in my knee.
I have been using the itBandz for about 2 weeks.
I love them I don’t have the bone grinding feeling going up and down stairs anymore. Also don’t have the shifting of my knee cap. I would recommend this item to anyone with various knee problems!
I've got some pain in my left knee due to arthritis, especially during my morning workouts. Saw a few people on Facebook commenting how the band helped them. Decided to try it out and was pleasantly surprised how this simple, yet very effective band was able to help me reduce the pain in my knee.
I've used other knee braces in the past but stopped using them because they were bulky uncomfortable. This one is not!
They really do help. I'm amazed!!
I purchased ItBandz braces 2 weeks ago and I must say they are helping me gradually! Once I understood you didn't have to have them super tight, just comfortable under the knee, it has helped with my walking and my achy knees, I can feel the difference in pain level, but somedays I do notice as weather changes etc..but for the most part they are a great product and recommended them highly! Very satisfied customer!
I can finally walk with minimal to no pain. I have arthritis in both knees, and one knee had arthroscopic surgery for two large tears in the meniscus. These bands are a God-send.
I've been wearing the itBandz for about 10 days. So far it seems to be supporting my knee and doing it with light support. It is comfortable and easy to wear. I recently had a gel shot in my knee that has bone on bone issues. So far I feel a lot better. Hopefully this continues.
I have had no success with the apparatus. I bought it because the advertisement said will help even bone on bone knee pain which I have but that’s not true. I still have the pain with no amount of alleviation.
Unfortunately this did not help me.
I never leave reviews unless I hate or live a product and I love this! I had meniscus surgery in May and have worsening arthritis in the same knee at only 32 years old. I was having trouble just walking down the stairs, but with this product in I’ve been able to get back to my high intensity workouts without any pain.
It took about 1 1/2 weeks for the "bandz" to kick in on my knees. I could feel them improve each passing day. I love it. I can finally walk at a normal pace and no limping. I highly recommend this product and have to my friends with knee problems.
It has helped me regain some confidence in walking downhills and walking further.
Great product . Works great on IT Band Pain
