Support for Patella Instability

Support for Patella Instability

DonJoy Tru Pull Lite Knee Brace
Recommended for acute mild to moderate anterior knee pain, support for patella
instability, lateral subluxation and maltracking.

Chondromalacia patella is a common cause of kneecap pain or anterior knee pain. This condition often affects young, otherwise healthy athletes. Chondromalacia is due to an irritation of the undersurface of the kneecap. The undersurface of the kneecap, or patella, is covered with a layer of smooth cartilage. This cartilage normally glides effortlessly across the knee during bending of the joint. However, in some individuals, the kneecap tends to rub against one side. Knee braces, bands, and cold therapy can help alleviate the pain caused by this condition.

The Tru-Pull Lite is DonJoy’s most comfortable, low profile and shortest patellofemoral brace, yet strong enough to relieve knee pain! This patella support brace is designed with pull straps above and below the patella (kneecap). This puts a “true” and consistent pull on the kneecap during flexion and extension, which realigns the patella. By properly aligning the kneecap you reduce the pain that comes with patellofemoral problems like dislocating your kneecap.

This brace is ideal for runners, recreational athletes, or individuals who are looking for extra patella support during their daily activities. Visit Sportsbraces.com.au view the entire collection of Knee Braces
