These knee braces have done the trick for me! Years of hiking and mountain climbing caught up to me, and simple walking was difficult, due to the lateral motion of my knees. These give me all the support that I need, and have restored my confident and firm stride.
It’s so nice to have a thin band that takes care of the pain in my knee. I use to wear a brace that covered my knee almost to my ankle. It was so hot when the weather got warm. I didn’t realize that I could get the same support from a band that’s smaller and thinner. A great great product! Thank you it bands knee support!
I fell and hurt tore medial and lateral meniscus 2 years ago and they didn’t want to do surgery. I also messed up the nerves in my knee. After using many knee braces, I found Ibandz and they are the only thing that has helped me. I have to wear mine daily or else I simply cannot walk without a limp
My problem is my right knee buckles. I have 4 bulky braces that have not really helped. When I saw the itBandz I thought why not?? I purchased 2 and have been pleasantly surprised how much the bandz has helped with stability. After costly braces this one has given me the most satisfaction. It has not cured my wonky knee but I feel a satisfaction wearing it.
I ordered a large which was actually too big.
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.
