Patella Tendon Strap Review #Running

Do you suffer with Patella Tendonitis, Chondromalacia Patella, Runners or Jumpers Knee? Mike does. His knees bother him daily.  Occasionally, I have issues on the stairs because of my weight. The pressure on a person's knees is tremendous.  Pain becomes almost inevitable if you're a runner, jumper, or even distance walker (that's where Mike fits in).

Recently, I was given the opportunity to try the  Patella Strap Tendon Band from StrapSnake.

Needless to say, Mike wanted it.  He put it on and put it through the paces.  He was mighty impressed. He wore it to work -- he's a Land Surveyor -- and he walks for miles each day. He jumps ditches and fences, slogs through mud and muck, and walks on.

Yes, those are Mike's knees.  He wouldn't take the strap off.

I've used it a few times on the stairs. Re-adjusting the strap to fit me was easy.  I've noticed a big difference when I'm walking and climbing the stairs.  I feel like I have a more support for the knee. The pain after is less than before.  I appreciate that.
