Wearing a patella knee brace or an open patella knee brace can help your knee move properly and decrease the wearing down of the knee joint. It can also help prevent kneecap dislocations and fight against unnatural knee movement caused by patella tracking issues.
Patella stabilizers and patella tracking braces help do this by providing compression all around the knee and “lifting” the knee into proper position. They also help give added support around the kneecap. This AllyFlex Sports® Patella Knee Brace is the best patella stabilizer on the market.
What's a Patellar Tendonitis Knee Brace?
Patellar tendonitis or jumper's knee occurs when you experience inflammation in your patellar tendon. The patellar tendon connects the kneecap to your shin bone. Patellar tendonitis weakens the tendon, which can lead to tears. A patellar tendonitis knee brace reduces pain and swelling, while preventing further injury or tearing. It helps the pain associated with tendonitis because it compresses the patellar tendon, reducing inflammation.
