Best Knee Braces For Cycling

HOW CAN I PREVENT OR AVOID A KNEE INJURY WHILE CYCLING OR BIKING?

Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or knee support can minimise your chances of a cycling injury by providing enhanced stability, proprioception and moisture-wicking medical-grade compression. Bauerfeind knee braces help to promote healing with the use of medical grade compression. This added support will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to pedal, ride in a peloton or attack your next hill.

HOW TO TREAT A CYCLING KNEE INJURY

    We recommend seeking treatment from a physiotherapist on treating a cycling injury. They may recommend one 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.
  • Ligament Tearing. Ligament tears generally always require surgery. A torn ligament rebuild uses a graft of tissue as the ligament will not generally heal properly otherwise. Surgery is often minimally invasive, however it can take time for the tear to heal.

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

IS CYCLING GOOD FOR YOUR KNEES?

Cycling is non weight bearing on your knees and so is better for your knee joints compared to running. It doesn’t cause as much muscle soreness and irritation as other high impact sports. Additionally, cyclists knee and Patella and Quadriceps tendinitis are common with overuse, especially when cleats are not fastened correctly to the pedals. Braces can help reduce the pain post ride, cycling insoles can help address the issue as well.
