What are the uses and benefits of patellar tendonitis strap?

What is it for?

  • Swelling and inflammation: inflammations will always be linked to pain, so the patellar band serves as a containment to prevent swelling from deforming the knee. This garment will only be useful for mild and already controlled injuries and inflammation, when it comes to a swelling on the rise, it is best to consult a specialist.
  • Acute or chronic pain: this strap protects only the patellar tendon and components of the patella, so if the pain is associated with another part of the joint, it will have no effect. It relieves pain by lowering blood circulation and maintaining pressure on the injury, only at the points covered by the strap.
  • Arthritis: knee pads offer stability when the joint is weakened by osteoarthritis and arthritis. Its use should not be daily to avoid further complications. Although this is a degenerative injury, we should not accustom the joint to have this constant support because it would start a relationship of unnecessary dependence.
  • Patellar Tendonitis: the band is specially designed to treat this ailment, maintains a pressure that provides stability, reduces the workload on the patellar tendon, which promotes recovery and prevents involuntary movements of the knee. It is a discreet garment that can be worn under any type of pants.
  • Meniscus injuries: the patellar knee strap helps the patella to maintain its proper functioning when there are already meniscus injuries. The person feels more stability and security when walking or jogging. It serves as a shock absorber for movements that may cause more damage and facilitates rest when the body is at rest.
  • Chondromalacia patella: no garment will prevent the progression of this degenerative disease, but the patellar band for chondromalacia provides additional protection to the patella to prevent further injury to it when the progression of chondromalacia is deep. It provides benefits in the care of cartilage integrity.
  • Jumper’s knee: the compressive knee band cushion the landing in the constant jumping of athletes. They prevent tension overload from weakening the muscles and putting stress on the tendons, tissues that are more difficult to recover. Tendons are strong structures, but repeated actions wear them down.
  • Runner’s knee: as this is an overuse injury of the joint, the knee bands allow a better distribution of the workload. The patella is the most important component of the knee, hence the need to manufacture this special strap to protect the patella and its tendon.
  • Osgood-Schlatter Syndrome: the use of these garments in children improves stress distribution and prevents the appearance of bumps behind the knee. When the patellar tendon becomes inflamed and irritated, it becomes a risk factor that complicates this injury present mainly in children who play sports.
  • Overuse injuries: in repetitive sports, protective straps reduce wear and tear on the patella. It works as an escape valve where energy does not accumulate under the kneecap. There are tapes with double Velcro fasteners that exert greater pressure, without cutting off blood flow.
  • Contusions and trauma: a slight blow to the knee will cause deformations and bruises, compressive straps protect from these impacts. There are models that come with small pads that cushion this type of impact, thus avoiding inflammation and greater pain that force the person to rest.
  • Instability of the patella: the imbalance in the movements can end in sprains, irritations and rupture of fibers in the tendon. Knee strap will prevent these irregular movements, even though they are smaller compared to knee braces, which cover a larger area of the joint.
  • Postoperative: after surgery, compression taping allows tissues, such as tendons and ligaments, to remain in place, with low probability of slippage. It is a useful support when performing a patellar tendon repair operation. During physiotherapy this garment may be present.

What are the benefits?

  • Support and stability: the strap is placed just below the patella, this garment allows the knee to have better support, reducing the likelihood of having imbalances when there is muscle fatigue. It also serves as support when there is a bad tread on uneven terrain and that may affect the functioning of the joint.
  • Compression: the pressure that these bands exert is just right if the person knows where to place the band. Compression keeps swelling from getting out of control and bruises from expanding. The pressure helps to provide a temperature that promotes blood flow.
  • Pain relief: only when the injury is under control can compression taping be used as a support to reduce the pain of chronic injuries. As long as the patella has less workload, it will be able to recover and will be able to reduce pain in an accelerated way. Rest is a fundamental part and must be accompanied by the use of the garment.
  • Injury prevention: even if you do not feel pain, but some time ago you suffered a kneecap injury, the bands are ideal if you are looking for a safe sports practice, with a lower risk of making a bad movement that ends in the recurrence of the injury. Avoid using them constantly to avoid harmful dependencies.
  • Accelerates recovery: the infrared patellar band allows the tendon and connective tissues to recover from minor injuries, the relief is almost immediate and thus may begin the regeneration of damaged cells during direct injuries to the knee.
  • Minimizes vibrations: When the joint is weakened, the knee wobbles and produces vibrations that affect the functioning of the entire joint. Compression through these garments prevents these involuntary movements from further weakening the patella and its internal components.

When to use?

  • Daily life: although its benefit is punctual, it serves to support the patella when you know that any other injury can alter it. It is recommended to avoid using knee straps or bands every day because they are temporary solutions, the relief they offer is temporary. If there is an injury, it should be addressed with the support of a specialist.
  • Work activities: in jobs where you must do flexion when bending or standing for a long time, the tapes will protect the tendon so that there is no excessive extension that can break it. And when cartilage and ligament activity is irregular, the strap protects your knee from injury.
  • Golf: With each swing of the ball, the knee twists along with the rest of the body. Patellar tendonitis strap will protect the overload of stress on the tendon. You will be able to take more swings with the club without worrying that this will put wear and tear on the joint and force you to retire from the course.
  • Running: they are useful for recovering from mild and severe injuries, as long as it is accompanied by a treatment indicated by your doctor. The compressive band should not be used during a race, trying to hide an injury only increases the risk of permanent damage. In training you can use it without risk because the intensity is not the same.
  • Cycling: should only be used if there is a slight previous discomfort in the knee. As cycling requires repetitive movements (pedaling), there is no compressive band capable of containing the damage that this sport has on the knee when there is already a recent discomfort. It should not be used to increase sports performance.
  • Yoga and gymnastics: its more precise compression helps to better preserve the functioning of the soft tissues connected to the kneecap, so that they can accumulate less tension when performing the complex movements of yoga or gymnastics acrobatics.
  • Tennis, badminton and racquet sports: starts, stops and changes of direction have less wear and tear on the patella when using a well-fitted strap. It can be used in competitions as long as it is in amateur mode where you can regulate your pace of play.
  • Crossfit, weightlifting and fitness: compression bands prevent lateral movements in the knee when lifting heavy weights. The patellar tendon is one of the tissues that suffers the most in this type of strength sport, where full leg flexion is often required.
  • Climbing, hiking and mountain sports: remember that the strap tries to immobilize the patellar tendon, so it is not recommended for use when you want to practice these sports of agility, strength and endurance body. In case of injury, the bands protect the articular functioning. You should not use the band if there are wounds or scrapes on the knee.
  • Team sports: if you practice sports such as soccer, basketball, handball, rugby, baseball, lacrosse, field field hockey, volleyball, etc., no doubt this patellar tendonitis strap can help you play your favorite sport by protecting the knee from injury.

Remember first to know which model will work best for you. Although they all have a basic purpose which is to protect the patella, you should always check that you want it with pads or with greater closure so that there is a better immobilization of the tendon and that allows to relieve the load on it.
