    My left knee is starting to bother me. While running it isnt too bad. But if I squat or anything that puts alot of pressure on my knee I get a sharp pain. I can also just press on it right below my kneecap and it hurts. Would a knee brace help at all? If so, does anyone recommend a paticular one?

    Wraps or sleeves work well for short term activity. Dont wear em too long though.

    i always use the McDavid jumper's knee strap and it helps with my knee pain, (below the knee cap just like yours)
