A Guide to Knee Braces

Regularly participating in physical sports can help to maintain an active and healthy body as it improves the body’s flexibility and strength, which also helps in our overall circulation. However, when participating in any physical sports, proper care must be taken especially when playing a sport that involves physical contact and collision, which can pose serious risks for individuals that are not trained sufficiently. But even for individuals that received proper training, risks are inevitable as most physical sports are rough by nature, which is why wearing protective accessories is important to reduce the potentially damaging impact of heavy collisions that can occur in most physical sports. These gears also come in sturdier types that are used to manage joint pain and swelling from injuries that may or may not be sports-related, such as in the case of joint problems from degenerative causes.

Knee supports are garments worn temporarily to prevent further injury and swelling on the knee, and reduce discomfort, which is often helpful as an initial intervention when waiting for professional treatment. When intended for use in injury management, individuals must seek advice from professionals first as it can only provide temporary relief, but treating the case still needs medical intervention.

For first-time buyers, here are the most common types of knee supports that you can choose from:

1. Stabilizing Knee Support – this type is commonly adjustable, and is worn by athletes that had previous ligament-related injuries and need a fair amount of support while playing.

Hinge Type- these are given to athletes that suffered a worse case of injury that damaged the ligament as it also provides protection aside from stability, but may not be recommended for some sports because of its metal part.

Closed Knee Cap Support- commonly used when jogging or walking briskly during exercises, and can aid in minimizing knee pain and swelling, but cannot be continuously worn as it can be too constricting especially when bending the knees.

Open Knee Cap Support- provides support with an open structure, which prevents too much constriction, that makes it possible to be worn every day without any risks.

Knee Cap Tendon Supporter- provides adequate support for the knee tendons, which is best for people restricted by pain in the area during running and jumping exercises.

Prior to using supportive gears for the knees, consumers must also consider the type of sports or injury that they want to use it for, as there are specific types that are intended for each case, and putting on a wrong one can further worsen the case instead of alleviating it. The gear’s intended amount of use must also be kept in mind to keep your knees from further injuries caused by excessive and prolonged constriction, which is risky when having to keep moving while wearing it.
