To achieve the strength and flexibility that you desire while participating in jumper’s knee exercises, it is important to wear the gear that will protect and support your injured knee.
The Cho-Pat Dual Action Knee Strap has been designed to reduce stress that is placed on the knee during jumper’s knee stretches, allowing you to achieve the desired results of reduced pain and increased healing. Jumper’s knee can limit the day to day activities that an individual can perform, and can also limit their athletic ability as well. When done properly, jumper’s knee exercises will help you to get back to better health.
Knowing how to prevent jumper’s knee can help you avoid a lot of pain and suffering. When you feel the initial pain during sports or other activities, stop what you are doing and ice the knee and surrounding area. Trying to play through the pain will only make the injury worse.
Participate in strengthening and flexibility exercises, such as those with the StretchRite®, to make the area more able to resist injury. In addition, do jumper’s knee stretches before and after you workout to make the muscles and tendons warm so they won’t tear.
