These do help my knee pain. I have arthritis in both knees and a meniscus injury in one. It hurts to stand and these help with that. I have larger legs and like this brand better because the strap in the back isn’t as wide as it’s softer.
I have rheumatoid in my knee and this band did not much good
I had a stroke over a year ago and it affected my right side. I’ve purchased knee braces and other knee bands to try and help me with my walking and stability…and the itBandz is the best yet! Thanks so much. Pam L.
I have been wearing these bands on both knees for two days this far. Surprised that I re rived so much relief. As soon as you are able to offer more colors I will order two more. They are comfortable even though I have large knees. So happy I tried these.
Been wearing the itBandz for over a month now. First day had pain relief and every day since. (also take anti-inflammatories) I have really bad knees (bone on bone), have all the bells and whistles knee braces and contraptions also but for just every day walking and work (on my feet, climbing and crawling at times), these work very well for me. Certainly going to score another pair or two.
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.
