General Application: To alleviate pain in the back of the knee. Medical Application: To alleviate posterior knee pain caused by tendon or soft tissue injuries, such as a posterior or meniscal tear, popliteus tendinitis, and lower hamstring strain. In addition, may relieve symptoms of peroneal and tibial nerve entrapment. How It Works: The Pro-Tec compression knee support provides targeted compression to stabilize the tendon or soft tissue and reduce strain to the area. Compression may decrease inflammation associated with nerve entrapment. Design Theory: Cool Max-covered felt compression pad provides focused compression on the target area. Neoprene wrap stretches to allow the user to control compression level. Non-slip backing keeps the wrap from sliding out of position.
