The 3M Knee Strap features upper and side compression tubes that target misalignment of the knee and help improve patellar tracking.
It works by providing a compressive force targeted above and below the knee cap. This pressure provides restraint to the knee cap and surrounding structures. This helps to prevent a 'knock kneed' posture, otherwise known as 'squinting patella'. This is important as a knock kneed posture can increase tension in the Ilio Tibial Band and cause Runners Knee.
By correcting knee cap posture the Mueller Max Knee Strap relieves strain on the Ilio Tibial Band and this reduces the friction that causes Runners Knee pain during running activities.
The knee strap's breathable, mesh fabric allows for an all-day comfortable fit.
