I was wondering what is causing my knee to give me a 'dead leg' when I make contact with the floor. (I play volleyball) My leg goes numb, I lose control of it, and if I try to continue playing I have sharp pains and it will give out while I am playing or simply walking around. I had a scope about a year ago and it has never been the same. I can't play in this condition and am looking for an answer to help me play again.

Pro-Tec Athletics' J-Lat Knee Support helps guide the patella back into proper alignment with gentle pressure from the lateral to medial direction. Compression surrounding the patella will help keep it in the patella-femoral groove.
