I am amazed at how well the itBandz works for me! After reading so many positive reviews, I decided to give the itBandz a try. I have very little cartilage in my left knee, and I would frequently get a sharp pain when I walked. It didn't happen all the time, but when it did, I would reach out to brace myself on something, and then walk very gingerly, as I didn't know if it would happen again. I got so I was using a cane as a "just in case". Since wearing the itBandz, I have had very few sharp pains in my knee. I feel that the itBandz is helping to keep my knee in place, if that makes sense. I put it on first thing in the morning and wear it all day. I don't even notice that I'm wearing it. I'm sure that someday I will need knee replacement surgery, but for now the itBandz is helping me walk pain free. Thank you so much for a great product!
The itBandz is providing great relief for me. I’m now able to walk longer distances with less pain as I continue to become more conditioned. Highly recommend this product to everyone who is suffering with severe pain in your knees while trying to walk.
I had a ruptured baker’s cyst and am on Eliquis for DVT ( 9 months ago) and I decided not to use on my left knee. Didn’t help my right knee at all. However, it helped my husband’s knee a lot
Along with rest from an overuse injury and stretching exercises from my doctor this knee brace is helping reduce issues I have with IT band syndrome. Shipped quickly.
Dealing with knee pain because I’ve been favoring one leg over another due to an injury so I purchased a itBandz to see if it would help. Wow…night and day. So it got me to thinking, what if I tried it on the bad leg while it is going through PT…yup, you guessed it, it really helps support the knee until I can heal my hip and it Band, so I ordered a second.
Use of a special neoprene provides a comfortable wearing experience.
The fastening system lets you easily adjust and control the amount of tension that the band provides you so that you can get the stability and support that is right for you.
The molded rubber insert piece mirrors the natural structure of the knee
Physical therapists love how itBandz assist in protecting your knee joints / kneecaps from stress and strain - so you can stay active and mobile.
itBandz effectively alleviate the discomfort caused by IT Band Syndrome, tendonitis, arthritis, Osgood Schlatters, other chronic knee issues due to excess weight, previous surgeries, a torn or thinning meniscus, and ACL, hip or ankle injuries.
If you suffer from arthritis and thinning cartilage (bone on bone) the tension from itBandz allows the internal support piece to gently lift the patella and act as an additional shock absorber for the knee.
The knee joint is a hinge and should only track forward and backward. Lateral motion can be introduced when tendons and ligaments get injured or overly tight from IT Band Syndrome. When these happen, the knee is pulled out of alignment and requires the additional stability provided by itBandz.
If you have tendonitis, the compression on the patellar tendon reduces strain on the tendon and allows it to heal while easing pain and reducing inflammation.
