General Application: Great for alleviating moderate knee pain, especially in areas under and surrounding the knee cap.

Medical Applications: Knee Pro-Tec,"The Original Neoprene Knee Strap" helps alleviate symptoms oftendinitis, chondromalacia, Osgood-Schlatter's Disease, and other knee ailments.

How It Works: Knee Pro-Tec provides compression on the patellar tendon, helping spread pressure uniformly across the patellar tendon, reducing discomfort and irritation. This compression may also help stabilize your patella, improving its tracking. In addition, Knee Pro-Tec absorbs stress to the knee, reducing vibrations in the femoral groove.

Design Theory: The Knee Pro-Tec patellar tendon strap is designed to provide consistent pressure on the patellar tendon. The strap is made from neoprene, which stretches, allowing it to stay comfortably in place. Tubing, sewn into the neoprene, is used to provide gentle compression and a plastic loop is utilized to make it easier to adjust. The strap attaches with a velcro closure.

Patellar Tendinitis
Medical Definition: Inflammation of the patellar tendon (ligament). The patellar tendon is actually a ligament that connects the patella (kneecap) to the tibia.

Causes: Overuse, often times due to extensive jumping or running, can cause tiny micro tears in the patellar tendon. This can lead to inflammation and soreness.

Symptoms: Localized tenderness at the point of insertion where the tendon meets the bone.

Recommended Treatment: R.I.C.E. - Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Reduce activity to promote healing. Strengthen surrounding muscles with a professionally recommended program. Apply Ice for 10-15 minutes after each workout to reduce inflammation and pain. A proper stretching routine is highly recommended pre and post workouts. As with any orthopedic injury, a consultation with a sports medicine professional is recommended.

Chondromalacia
Medical Definition: Wearing away and/or softening of the articular cartilage, which is a connective tissue that covers and protects the underside of the patella, the bottom end of the femur, and top end of the tibia. It absorbs stress to the knee joint and allows the patella to track smoothly in its femoral groove.

Causes: Excessive running or similar activity can wear down the articular cartilage over time. This can occur due to the patella not tracking smoothly in its femoral groove.

Symptoms: Pain around the patella (kneecap), usually occurring on the medial (inner) side and below.

Recommended Treatment: R.I.C.E. - Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Reduce activity to promote healing. Avoid downhill runs especially. Strengthen surrounding muscles with a professionally recommended program. Apply Ice for 10-15 minutes after each workout to reduce inflammation and pain. A proper stretching routine is highly recommended pre and post workouts. As with any orthopedic injury, a consultation with a sports medicine professional is recommended.

Osgood-Schlatter's Disease
Medical Definition: Enlarged tibial tuberosity causing inflammation of the patellar tendon at the location where the patellar tendon inserts into the tibial tubercle. Common in young, male athletes.

Causes: During growth spurts in young athletes, the quadriceps muscle, which is much stronger than the patellar tendon, can pull away the patellar tendon from the tibia, causing pain.

Symptoms: Pain and/or tenderness just below the kneecap at the patellar tendon insertion on the tibial tubernacle.

Recommended Treatment: R.I.C.E. - Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Reduce activity to promote healing. Strengthen surrounding muscles with a professionally recommended program. Apply Ice for 10-15 minutes after each workout to reduce inflammation and pain. A proper stretching routine is highly recommended pre and post workouts. As with any orthopedic injury, a consultation with a sports medicine professional is recommended.
