The Best Knee Brace for Runner's Knee

The DonJoy Cross Strap was designed specifically to help prevent runner’s knee, and was engineered with runners and cyclists in mind. It is fabricated in one piece, so nothing will fall off and you won’t lose small parts. It is designed to apply just enough pressure on the patellar tendon to avoid friction on the iliotibial band (ITB). It is small yet comfortable to be discreet under running pants, without any stitching. It compresses the forces above and below the knee cap to reduce tension in the ITB and the pain resulting from there.

Of course, other athletes suffering from knee pain may also benefit from wearing a DonJoy Cross Strap during their sports activities to reduce pain and help prevent runner’s knee. As mentioned above, runner’s knee does not only affect runners and cyclists. If you lift weights or perform other tasks with consistent bending of the knee, you should consider wearing a knee strap such as the DonJoy Cross Strap, as pressure on the lateral part of your knees can also cause runners knee.

It is the simplicity of this brace and the targeted support it applies that makes the DonJoy Cross Strap ideal for someone who is looking for relief from runner’s knee. Plus it can be worn during daily activities and sports!

How do you put in on??
Question by: nicole on Jul 25, 2011, 1:10 PM
There is a slit in one side of the strap that you thread the other side through at the front of the knee just under the knee cap. The donjoy logo will be at the top of your calf so that someone standing behind you can read it, then attach the velcro on each side of the strap onto the brace to hold in place.

My knee is measuring 18 just below my knee cap. Will the large don joy strap fit comfortable? My legs are very heavy and want to know which strap is more efficient for patella tendonitis? I will be wearing daily under dress pants. I would like to order don joy or pro care strap today. Thanks
Question by: Sarah on Jan 14, 2015, 8:13 AM

Can this strap help me if I have bi lateral patella compression syndrome.
Question by: Dave on Jul 22, 2015, 4:43 PM
Yes this strap will help you with a mild support on that bilateral patella compression syndrome. Another one I would recommend is the DONJOY REACTION WEB knee brace which will give you a better support and decrease pain.
