Can help alleviate conditions of tendinitis, Chondromalacia, and Osgood Schlatter’s Disease. These band-like devices wrap around the bottom of the knee (sometimes above the knee) and apply pressure to the tendon. The major function of them is to help spread pressure across a larger area and take stress off of the sore area of the patellar tendon (tendon on the bottom of the knee). When placed above the knee, they function to help reduce stress on the area where the IT Band tends to get tight and create friction around the knee. Another added benefit to a strap is its proprioceptive effect on the knee joint. It provides feedback to the brain to help keep the muscles that support the knee on a heightened level of alert.
