Best Basketball Knee Sleeves

WHY SHOULD YOU WEAR A BASKETBALL KNEE SLEEVE?

High impacting movements such as layup shots and knee breaker dribbles in basketball, make knees highly prone to injury. Wearing a Bauerfeind knee brace, such as the Sports Knee Support will help prevent and treat basketball knee injuries.

The braces and supports provide enhanced stability for the knee and improves circulation. This reduces the risk of injury. The medical-grade compression in Bauerfeind's Knee braces improves blood flow and depletes lactic acid aiding in a speedy recovery after a workout.
