How can I prevent or avoid a knee injury when skiing?

Knee injuries account for a third of all skiing related injuries with most of these related to ligament sprains, tears and ruptures. A diagnosis should be made with the help of a trained physiotherapist. Many physiotherapists will recommend wearing a knee brace such as a Bauerfeind knee support to minimise your chances of injury by enhancing stability, proprioception and by using medical-grade compression around the joint. Some of the more common forms of injury while skiing include knee, ACL and MCL tears and inflammation. Bauerfeind knee braces help to promote blood flow with the use of our 3D weave medical grade compression, something not found when using simple neoprene sleeves or cheaper braces. This added support will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to enjoy your next black run or slalom ski race.

How to treat common skiing injuries

We recommend visiting a physiotherapist for treatment and advice on treating common ski related 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 physiotherapist can assist with the recovery as well. If the sprain is more severe you may require surgery.
  • Meniscal Tearing. Simple meniscal tears may be treated with the RICE method and anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen. Advanced tears may require surgery. Surgery for meniscal tears are minimally invasive and allow for quicker recovery time.
  • Ligament Tearing. Ligament tears will generally always require surgery. A torn ligament rebuild uses a tissue graft, as the ligament will not generally heal properly otherwise. Surgery can be minimally invasive however these injuries may take considerable time to heal.

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

What’s the best knee support to use when skiing?

The side to side movements of your legs during skiing is very harsh on your knees. The best kind of knee support is one that grips your knee cap to prevent movement, as well as being breathable and comfortable on your skin.
