Kneesavers?(4 posts)

Mar 29, 2002 10:52 PM
I am wondering if any of you have any experience with this product. I suffer from arthritis in my right knee and am trying to find ways to help keep the discomfort down and the milage up.
I have been working with a physical therapist that is also an avid cyclist. He feels that I may benefit from a cleat placement that alows my foot to follow my normal tendancy to toe out. When I set my cleat up to work that way I am always knocking my heel into the chainstay. While cruising the web for solutions to my problem I found Kneesavers. Have any of you used these or know anyone that has? Thanks

Yes, I have used them for several years. They are an excellent product. If only they would come out with a titanium version (they are a bit heavy)!

I don't have tendonitis. When I had my last arthroscopic procedure the evidence of arthritis was clearly visible. The only treatment to realy help besides the surgery has been Glucosamine and chondroitin as a dietary suppement. I am always looking for every biomechanical advantage possible to limit the stress on my knee. I have had tendonitis in the past and rest is certainly part of the treatment. I have also had infamation of my MCL once that was cured by friction massage therapy by my physical therapist. All of these diagnosis were made by a sports oriented orthopedic surgeon. So many things can't be diagnosed any other way and you run the risk of more serious problems if you try the wrong treatments. If your tendonitis was not diagnosed by a competent physician you should see one if your problem persists.I also think good position and fit done by a knowledgeable thecnician will help most people keep their joints healthy.
