For two decades, our knee strap has been acclaimed by orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists, podiatrists, chiropractors, family-practice physicians, physical therapists and their patients -- as well as scores of professional athletes. Why? Because shortly after initial usage, it produces a marked reduction in discomfort. What's more, when used daily, it allows most individuals to return to work and leisure activities with increased mobility and greatly decreased discomfort. In fact, the Cho-pat knee strap can offer symptomatic relief for acute/chronic pain associated with Patello-Femoral Syndrome and Osgood-Schlatter's Disease. In most cases, jumper's knee, runner's knee and thigh-muscle weakness respond well. These remarkable results are based on the device stabilizing and tightening the mechanisms of the kneecap via the patella tendon. The knee strap reduces or eliminates inflammation and helps prevent knees from giving out.
