I have had lots of snaps and crackles in on left need and even using salves and ointments I still had issues.
When I use them with the knee brace, I hardly have an issues and seems to support my leg as well. Thank you
Wear both when playing golf. No pain.
It seems to do the trick, but they need to make the band in back wider where the velcro sticks on. All they need to do is sew the velcro on a wider softer strap so that the scratchy velcro does not dig in to your leg behind your knee. Very annoying.
I bought this because part of my knee is bone on bone and the knee slips with some sudden movements. This seems to help to stabilize the knee and helped with my pain when running errands.
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.
