What is the best knee brace to recover from patellar tendonitis?

To ensure you get optimum support when suffering from patellar tendonitis, you need a patellar tendon brace like our Sports Knee Strap. Its clever design effectively reduces pain:

  • Positioned below the kneecap, at the insertion of the patellar tendon
  • Special pad with four nubbed pressure points that exert a beneficial massaging action during movement
  • The inner pressure points also guide and support the tendon and relieve the tendon insertion when subjected to strain
  • The outer pressure points stimulate the area around the patellar tendon and boost the knee’s sensorimotor function.

It is extremely important that the brace fits perfectly, i.e. it must neither be too tight nor too loose. The Sports Knee Strap ensures this perfect fit with its individually adaptable strap system: you can evenly tighten the strap from both sides and fasten it securely. That means everything is exactly in the right place – and will stay there.

What to do about anterior knee pain?

Pain in the area of the patellar tendon is usually the result of excessive strain. That is why you should significantly dial back the intensity of your running training for the time being. You should also avoid strain caused by jumping and replace it with activities that are gentle on your joints such as regularly cycling or rowing.

The patella is embedded in the tendon of the anterior thigh muscle (quadriceps femoris muscle). Tension in the thigh muscles can therefore cause tensile loads on the patellar tendon. That is why regular stretching can provide noticeable relief even at this stage. Furthermore, cooling your knee several times per day with a cold pack for a maximum of 20 minutes each will alleviate pain.

Depending on how pronounced and severe your patellar tendonitis is, you should implement additional measures. In addition to physiotherapy treatment – such as ultrasound, electrotherapy, shockwave or manual therapy – aqua jogging, for example, is also very suitable to get the knee joint carefully used to movement again. The buoyancy of the water will significantly reduce strain on the joints and alleviate pain.
