Patellar Tendon Strap

WHAT IS A PATELLAR TENDON STRAP USED FOR?

 

The patellar tendon is the muscle at the front covering the kneecap. A patellar tendon strap is an orthotic device which provides targeted support and relief to the patellar tendon area to relieve symptoms of patients experiencing pain.

Patellar tendon strap is used to assist in pain management for patellar tendonitis, also known as Jumper's knee, which is the inflammation of the patella tendons due to overuse.

Other conditions which a patellar tendon strap can be helpful in are patellofemoral pain syndrome, patellar chondropathy, patellar tip sydrome and jumper's knee.
