If managed the right way, an injury should not stop you, providing you seek the right advice and use our products in the correct way.
Runner’s Knee (Patellofemoral Knee Syndrome):
This condition is classically characterized by a constant ache underneath your kneecap. The condition links back to movement around the patella or an inability of the tissues surrounding the patella to recover effectively between activity.
Suggested Product: PRO-FOAM®
Take the Healit™ PRO-FOAM® and put it just below the knee
Wrap it around the leg, not too tight but with good tension
Wrap it around about 5-6 times
Roll it up the knee so the band sits between the kneecap and the notch right below it
