HOW CAN I PREVENT OR AVOID A KNEE INJURY DURING SOCCER?
Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or knee support can minimise your chances of a soccer injury by providing enhanced stability, proprioception and moisture-wicking 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. This added support will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to run down the field, control the ball, dribble and kick goals.
HOW TO TREAT A SOCCER INJURY
- We recommend visiting a physiotherapist for treatment and advice on treating soccer injuries. They may recommend the following treatments for further athletics injuries.
- 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.
- Medial Collateral Ligament injury. This occurs when the (valgus) force is too great for the ligament to resist and the ligament is overstretched. Treatment of an MCL injury varies depending on its severity. Always consult a physiotherapist to receive a full diagnosis and treatment plan.
- Runner’s Knee. This is the common name for patellofemoral pain syndrome. This is often due to abnormal mechanics caused by problems close to the knee, forcing the patella to bump against the femoral groove. We recommend speaking with a running specific physiotherapist, they will usually review your running form as well as tissue and musculature.
Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent tendonitis pain.
