HOW CAN I PREVENT OR AVOID A KNEE INJURY WHILE PLAYING TENNIS?
Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or knee support can minimise your chances of a tennis 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, something not found when using basic neoprene sleeves and braces. This added support will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to serve, volley, smash a ball and win your next set.
HOW TO TREAT A TENNIS INJURY
- We recommend visiting a physiotherapist for treatment and advice on treating tennis injuries. They may recommend one of 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.
- Arthritis of the Knee. Non-surgical treatment options for severe knee arthritis include physiotherapy exercises, applications of ice or heat and using supportive devices.
- ITB Syndrome. We recommend taking a break from tennis as soon as you notice any ITB pain and go and get assessed by your physiotherapist.
