itBandz Knee Brace
Since I started using this I have some relief! Especially when over exerting my knee. If I’m doing a lot of up and down stairs, walking around my yard it makes a big
difference. I gave it 4 stars because the strap can hurt the back of my leg, so I wear it over my jeans which helps!
I have found it to be somewhat helpful to me. Some days better than others and of course depending on what I am doing. I definitely see the value in it and it does work (for me) some of the time, of which I am glad about. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for releaf! I most likely will need a knee replacement at some point in time, so this for me is kind of like putting a band aid on a bigger wound, but again, it has been helpful! Thank you!
I was pleasantly surprised to find that this band really made a difference.

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.
