Pain on the side of the knee is located on the outside (lateral) of the leg. Most side knee pain is caused by inflammation from a relatively minor sprain or strain, but it may also be the result of a tendon disconnecting from the kneecap or wear and tear of the knee’s cartilage. It’s also common for side knee pain to occur in people whose kneecaps have been pushed outward due to overuse during athletic activities. The pain can be described as weakness, tightness, burning, a dull but persistent ache, or pain that begins on the side and radiates across the kneecap. There may also be swelling or a buckling or locking feeling.
The RapidForce U Shape is designed to reduce pain in the side of the knee, and is particularly effective for youth because they can hold the kneecap in its proper position while training or competing. The Shape’s central core adheres to the side of the knee, along the outer edge of the kneecap. The central core stabilizes the injury site, and the dual arms are stretched inwards, creating dynamic structural support.
