Some athletes and trainees who have PFPS use a type of bracing mechanism to lend support and stability. Bracing the knee(s) can also offer mental confidence so the fear of re-injury is diminished.
One type of bracing device is the patellar strap. The patellar strap is less bulky than conventional full-knee covering braces - a “minimalist” approach to knee bracing.
A study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research sought to determine the effectiveness of these smaller straps. They used infra-patellar (below the patella) and supra-patellar (above the patella) straps to study quadriceps activity and onset timing of the bodyweight squat. Based on the study results it is encouraging that knee straps may have potential benefits.
