I went out and bought one. They are cheap, mine was around $15. A few minutes working my left leg on it and my knee was back to normal. It was like magic.

Unfortunately for me, my IT band tightens up easily and even some simple leg work can cause a lot of pain in that knee. Lunges, squats, whatever.
So here I am today, post cardio, working out the leg. Taking the pressure off the knee.
