As an active adult and endurance athlete I was no longer able to ride and run without experiencing significant knee pain.
I suffer from a very common condition called patellofemoral pain (PFP), also known as "Runner's Knee”. It causes your knee to ache and burn during activity. It also causes stiffness after sitting for long periods or sleeping.
The underlying cause of my PFP is patella (knee cap) misalignment. X-rays revealed my patella does not track properly. It tilts and there is a lack of space on one side. There are many causes including normal "wear and tear", over use, and musculoskeletal imbalances. All can eventually lead to debilitating arthritis.
My attempts to relieve my chronic pain included several OTC knee supports, taping, physical therapy, and a visit to an orthopedic knee specialist. None were successful at providing lasting and effective relief.
Finally, after years of suffering from chronic knee pain, I decided to use my engineering skills to design a device specifically intended to address the underlying cause of my condition. The result was, NuNee™, a patent pending device that’s function is unique to any other knee support available on the market.
Since I began using NuNee™ I am happy to report that I, and many others, can now ride, run, and live knee pain free for the first time in many years.
