A high-quality patella tendon brace can offload pressure from the patella tendon and allow your injury to heal faster!
They can be used whilst recovering plus when returning to sport from injury. Remember you should always address the underlying cause of the injury by following the instructions in our ebook.
Here are two of our favourite braces that we use every day:
The reason we love this brace is that it comes in 2 sizes and also has a second strap to stop slippage. If you’ve ever used a single strap before, then you will probably have been frustrated by the amount of time you spend bending forwards to pull the thing back up again. If you play sports, the minute you start sweating, single straps will slide down towards your ankle and be immediately useless.
This model is slightly more heavy duty than the ionocore brace, this is the one we recommend for people that are going to play contact sports like rugby or American football, it will stay locked onto the knee and withstand collisions much better than any other style of brace.
Don’t forget that if you are going to sweat lots whilst wearing these products, then you might want to buy a spare one as they need to be washed regularly or you will end up with very salty/itchy skin and a rather smelly knee!!!
