Runner's Knee IT-Band Compression Strap Review Pro Tec


This cheap strap has apparently helped many alleviate their runner’s knee symptoms very quickly, including mine. You may want to give it a try.

  1. Dude I really appreciate this video… thank you! I am running the NYC marathon 2 months today and I am petrified as I did London back in April and at mile 15 my IT band gave me pain like I have never had before and I had to push through the remaining 11 mile. I will be ordering one of these

  2. Hi, I feel my IT band stretched after running. What's the diff between this brace and the one I see people wear under their knee? Which one is better to hold the knee in place.

  3. I think they changed the material. I had an older version that worked great. Well, I lost it and bought a new one and it slips constantly. Wished they had left it alone.

  4. Man your legs are so skinny. I got one of these today and tried it on and the first velcro doesn't even reach the end so it just rubs on my leg. I may need to get the larger size. It stayed on until I went indoors and got real sweaty and then it fell off because of the sweat when I went back indoors. It seemed to work for the pain though.

  5. Thanks for this video. I was about to cancel the Space Coast Half. I was unable to run past 6 miles while training due to excessive pain. Based on this video, I used this exact band and finished with only minor pain. Placement is the key and , as you mentioned, not well explained. You saved my race and final 2015 goal.

  6. I have suffered with runners knee for months now had to cancel my start date for army basic training due to not being able to run! I am back on track now thanks to you and this video. People this actually does work I run fine now brought it off amazon.

  7. I've seen someone else (/watch?v=3Pl3puCIs0U) put something similar below their knee-cap instead of above it also to eliminate runner's knee. Do you know the difference between these methods?

  8. Thanks so much for this review, very helpful. Just got my strap in the mail and plan to use it tomorrow. How many miles do you usually run while wearing the strap? Getting back to running after taking a couple days of rest from itbs but ultimately I will be running about 9-13 a day… Do you think it will continue to alleviate the pain for that long?

  9. Hello thank you for this video it was very helpful! I was wondering if you only wear this when running or would it be beneficial to also wear throughout the day like at work or around the house? Thanks!!

  10. thanks dude, I ran my first half marathon, I used to run 5 km but I jumped from 5 km to 21 km directly, so got the runner's knee, on both knees outer sides… good explanation, by the way the fact that proper stretching exercises can do help is key information for me… thanks

  11. I couldn't wait to get to town and buy one of these bands, so I took a smallish flat river rock and duct-taped it to my leg in the same position that you explained in the video and it seemed to almost immediately alleviate the pain in my knee…..just worried about the pain that the duct-tape is causing around my leg now 😉

  12. Thank you for the helpful video! Training for my first half marathon and was really starting to love it when I experienced pain on the side of my knee. Read about the knee strap and found your video so I purchased a similar one I'm hoping to try out and I plan on doing the stretches as well. Quick question- did you self diagnose yourself with IT band syndrome or see a doctor? I know there are two different types of runner's knee but I figured I have ITBS due to the pain being on the side. Thanks again!

  13. Hi there!
    There are a lot of ppl on here that have given really good reviews about this strap.
    But what about for sprinters? Do u think it will work for American Football players as well?

  14. Ok, this vlog and the other one you made about runners knee, THANK YOU!!!
    I´m sure as hell ordering the strap and I will do the stretches you showed in the other video 🙂
    Very helpful thumbs up
