Sizing and Technical Information:
Physio Warehouse's therapists advise this brace is a good value product. It is advised for patients with mild to moderate symptoms but not for tendon tears or acutely inflamed and severely painful injuries which should be treated by a professional. We do not advise this brace for use in Osgood Schlatter’s or SLJ syndrome in children and adolescents as the brace encourages early return to sport which can damage the apophysis and may lead to more severe injury – For further advice refer to your G.P. or therapist.
