    Hi does it have a name

      Naming my knees is a great idea! Giving them a personality will help my motivation. What about Barry and Paul (Chuckle) or knobby and Nigel?

      Hello, yep def Barry& Paul ( to me to you!) lol. Who wouldn't go far with Chuckle Brothers knees.

      Good luck with your training.

      Happy Christmas 🎄

      I'm wondering if Alexandria means does your knee condition have a MEDICAL name and not a nickname.

    you might consider wearing a

    Safe-T-Sport knee brace from Amazon.

    It is specifically designed to accommodate the patella with padding around the knee cap and an opening above the knee cap. You can cinch it with the Velcro straps top and bottom
