I have tried them but my knee pain is not any better. I was hoping!
I wear mine every day and found they give me the knee support I need. I bought two for both knees. However one of the Velcro straps does not stay fastened. Just purchase them in May. I’m on the edge if I wasn’t to spend another $35 for replacement.
It seems to help some. I am more able to stay on my feet longer. I will need to continue to wear it to make sure it is going to work as well as I hope it will.
I had my doubts on this product but I ordered any way. I am so glad I did. My daily life was suffering severely and this includes my job but I ordered and started wearing them and what a difference. I had fallen 2 different times three years apart but each time I did damage to my knee and leg. I have osteoarthritis and cannot put any direct pressure like kneeling on my knees. I have not been to a doctor for them to tell me exactly what is wrong because I fear they will tell me surgery. When I started wearing these Ibandz I felt such relief. My pain when walking has reduced by half. It’s not completely gone and I still have to watch how I turn my knee but my walking has greatly improved and for that I say 5 stars and take the chance with this product
So easy to put on compared to others I have tried and very comfortable. I will probably get a second pair. My knee’s don’t hurt going up and down stairs and walking around places like the zoo while I’m wearing these. Without them stairs are agony!
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.
