A stabilization (“Tendonitis”) strap must be worn at ALL times.

Proper placement for this strap is as followed:

  • Elbow: 2″ below the crease of the arm (towards the hand)
  • Knee: 1″ below the knee cap
  • Apply ice for 10-15 minutes maximum, after any physical activity

On a daily basis, around bedtime, do the following steps:

  • Remove the stabilization strap
  • Apply Bio-Freeze to the area
  • Wrap the area with an ace bandage or “saran” plastic wrap
  • Re-apply the stabilization strap to the affected area
  • Keep the area wrapped until the morning
  • In the morning, remove the wrapping and wash the area
  • Reapply the stabilization strap to the affected area

This cycle is done on a daily basis
