The best brace that is the most difficult to put on

At SPC, we use the SERF strap a lot.  It is a useful tool that can be applied for short term, volume increases when breakdowns occur.  It can be used for pain for the ankle, knee and hip.  The strap helps by controlling the hip into internal rotation and adduction and therefore can prevent excessive  hip adduction, internal rotation, knee valgus, or too rapid pronation and tibial internal rotation.

But it is hard to put on.  So I made a video to help.
