Best Knee Braces For Basketball

HOW CAN I PREVENT OR AVOID A KNEE INJURY WHILE PLAYING BASKETBALL?

 

Basketball has one of the highest risk of knee injuries in sports. Some of the most common forms of injury while playing basketball include jumper’s knee, ACL and MCL tears and inflammation.

Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or knee support can minimise your chances of injury by providing enhanced stability, proprioception and medical-grade compression.

Bauerfeind knee braces help to promote blood flow with the use of our 3D weaved medical grade compression, something not found when using simple neoprene sleeves and braces.

Professional athletic trainers for the NBA and NBA players trust and use Bauerfeind GenuTrain knee brace for preventing and treating knee injuries.

Your knees help propel and absorb shock during high impact sports like basketball and aids in assisting as you make sudden, high speed direction changes.

Injury can be prevented with knee braces, which stabilise your knee joints and activate and massage the surrounding muscles. 

Push your personal limits like NBA players with this added support which will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to dribble down a court or complete your next layup.

    HOW TO TREAT A BASKETBALL KNEE INJURY?

    We recommend visiting a physiotherapist for treatment and advice on treating common basketball injuries. They may recommend the following treatments.
    • Strains or Sprains. Many sprains and strains can be treated with the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. A good physiotherapist can assist with the recovery however prevention is always better than cure.
    • Jumper’s Knee. This is the common name for Patellar tendonitis. Rarely does this condition require surgery. It can generally be treated using a combination of anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen) and exercise. Corticosteroid injections may also be used.
    • Meniscal Tearing. Simple meniscal tears may be treated with the RICE method and anti-inflammatory medications. Advanced tears may require surgery. Surgery for meniscal tears are minimally invasive and allow for quicker recovery time.

    Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent knee pain.
