How can I prevent or avoid a knee injury while playing volleyball?

Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or knee support can minimise your chances of a volleyball injury by providing enhanced stability, proprioception and moisture-wicking medical-grade compression. Some of the most common forms of injury while playing volleyball include jumper’s knee, ACL and MCL tears, knee pain and stiffness. Falls, incorrect landing, over-exertion, fatigue, collisions with other players and being struck by the ball are common causes of injuries for both regular and beach volleyball players. 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 jump serve, block, spike a ball or off-speed hit.

How to treat a volleyball knee injury

We recommend seeking treatment from a physiotherapist on treating a volleyball injury. They may recommend one the following treatments.

  • Strains or Sprains. Many sprains and strains can often 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.
  • Jumper’s Knee. This is commonly known as Patellar tendonitis. Rarely does this condition require surgery. It can generally be treated using a combination of anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen) and exercise. A corticosteroid injection may also be used.
  • Meniscal Tearing. Simple meniscal tears may be treated with the RICE method and anti-inflammatory medications. Advanced tears may require surgery. Muscle weakness or incoordination can predispose you to a ligament sprain or tear.
  • Knee Ligament Injury. Advanced and severe ligament damage will often require surgery. A torn ligament rebuild uses a tissue graft, as the ligament will not generally heal properly otherwise. For grade three knee ligament injuries a hinged knee brace is recommended.

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

Do I need knee supports for volleyball?

All athletes and sports players should wear knee supports. Not only do they offer protection of your kneecap, ligaments and meniscus, they activate and massage the surrounding muscles to increase blood flow to the area.
