How to choose the best knee brace?
From ACL to MCL instabilities to patella and arthritis pain, there are a number of knee injuries that can sideline your training and daily activities. However, there are a variety of braces to choose from that can help you recover quickly and prevent re-injury to the knee, whether it be for sports, daily functions, pain reduction or post-surgery.
Knee Brace with HingesA knee brace with hinges is ideal for athletes who need protection and stabilization post-surgery, PCL, LCL or ACL injuries. A bad twist, poor knee to ankle alignment, or wrong way to land are common ways athletes sustain ligament injuries. A hinged knee brace offers protection to the athlete's knee, delivering support and stability to heal quickly. Hinges can prevent hyperextension of the knee and offers protection of the ACL, and other ligament injuries, to athletes who don't want to lose speed by weighing themselves down with a heavy brace.
Knee braces with hinges come in two forms: rigid and soft hinged. Soft hinged knee braces are ideal for mild to moderate support whereas rigid hinged knee braces are ideal for moderate to maximum support and offer better protection and stability for contact-sports.
Compression Knee SleevesFor mild to moderate chronic knee pain and arthritis can be minimized with sleeves and compression braces. These support braces redistribute the weight-bearing load and increases the ability to perform your best during training and sports, helping decrease pain from day-to-day movement, which is no small feat. Can fit under clothing for daily comfort.
Wraparound Knee BraceWraparound styles for athletes provide bracing solutions for mild to moderate knee pain, patellar instabilities and dislocation. Simple and easy to put on and off, allow you to customize the fit for comfort and knee protection. Wrap-style bracing can be worn during activity allowing you to focus on your performance without all the bulk.
Knee StrapsHelp ease runner's knee pain, patellar tendonitis (jumper's knee) or acute knee pain with strap bracing. These are designed to apply a comfortable, effective pressure on the knee to help alleviate pain. Simple to wear (fits under clothing), and easy to put on, straps can be worn during daily activities and sports.
