I was diagnosed with Patella Tendonitis 3 years ago. I am a college basketball player. I ice my knee everyday and take ibuprofen. I also use the strap while I play but it gives me a rash on the back of my leg, whether I wrap it or not. What is an alternative brace that could be used? Whats the best anti-inflammatory medicine? What are good excersices and stretches that i could do in practice or before a game?
