Best Knee Braces For LCL Injuries

WHAT IS THE BEST TREATMENT FOR LCL INJURIES?

A common knee injury occurs to the lateral collateral ligament (LCL) which can get torn or sprained from direct force trauma. The LCL is a ligament, or band of tissue, that runs along the outer side of your knee. It helps to hold the bones together so that your knee joint remains stable when you move. Symptoms of an LCL injury can range from mild to severe, including swelling of the knee, stiffness and locking, pain on the outside of the knee and instability.

Bauerfeind’s high-quality knee supports or braces with medical-grade compression target the symptoms and instabilities associated with LCL injuries. We have appropriate braces dedicated to minimise the pain and swelling to help complement and facilitate the recovery process. The gentle fabric is comfortable and flexible, allowing you to perform everyday activities without any restrictions to movement. A knee brace that will benefit LCL injuries is the GenuTrain S, which is a hinged knee brace that provides extra stability.

 

HOW TO TREAT PAIN CAUSED BY LCL INJURIES

  • Physical therapy. Strengthening exercises prescribed from your physiotherapist or exercise physiologist help to build muscles around the knee, easing the load on the joints and reducing pain.
  • Stretching. Lessen stiffness and reduce pain through stretching exercises.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and analgesic may be helpful for pain management.
  • Support and brace. A Bauerfeind brace offers enhanced stability, proprioception and medical-grade compression, which targets specific joints and relieves pain.
