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.
