I read the reviews carefully and decided to try it because most said it worked for them but I was one of the people it did not help
I got these for my fiancé. He had a lot of pain when he walked. The bands really helped. He’s walking much better and feels much less pain.
I bought an it band for my right knee. I have arthritis in both knees but the right one is worse by far. The knee was not always stable and I was afraid of it giving away and causing me to fall. I wore my it band faithfully every day for 3 months. My knee no longer aches and it is stable. Thank you!
P.S. Wish you made something for shoulders - my husband needs that.
I believe that I Purchased the wrong size and I'm not really a person who likes to return items.
Very pleased with my it hands Knee Braces. Have worn them every day since I got them and my knees haven't felt this good in forty years. No pain when I do my speed walking every morning.
Only reason for the 4 stars is because they aren't made in the U.S.
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.
