Number 1 Draft pick Elton Brand played in the NBA for 17 years. As a result of the heavy pressure placed on his knees and the variety of sudden movements on the court, Brand experienced severe issues with both knees. He suffered chronic pain from meniscus tears, and he felt discomfort in both knees. In spite of the lateral meniscus repair surgery, Brand still experienced the same pain and was limited in the activities he would engage in regularly. “I tried standard, regular surgery. They went in with a scope, but it just didn’t improve, so I wanted to try RELIEF® to see if it would give me a shot to get back to my normal lifestyle. “ “My flexibility has improved already. It’s miraculous because it’s been over ten years since I could be this flexible in this knee as I am right now,” Brand says. “The entire experience was painless. I didn’t have to get anesthesia, I just relaxed on the couch. We had some music. I really like that the procedure was not invasive. I didn’t feel a thing, didn’t have to take anesthesia – I was awake the whole time relaxing,” Brand smilingly says. “I would absolutely do the procedure again if I needed it, maybe my right knee, but the way my left knee feels right now, it doesn’t feel like I’ll need it again.”
