Patella Bands For Knee Pain -
A patella band is designed to relieve pain around the patellofemoral joint, condition often referred to patello-femoral pain syndrome. The undersurface of the patella is curved to track in a groove (called the trochlear groove) and distributes pressure across the undersurface of the patella (knee cap) with the femur (thigh bone).le Playing sports over the years along with presentation of an increased Q-angle (termed knock knees) can increase the chance of someone becoming susceptible to having a PFPS injury. The repeated loading of the knee joint with activities like running, jumping, and ascending or descending stairs can aggravate this syndrome. Patella bands can reduce pain while a program of rest and safe quadricep muscle strengthening exercises are slowly introduced over time.
