Golfing is a great sport for people of any age, with low demand on your body meaning it's a good alternative to more physical activities. While it's nice and accessible, people with arthritis or meniscus issues can still have troubles. The movement of swinging a golf club puts rotational strain on the knees, aggravating those who have deterioration in the joint.
Wearing a golf knee brace is one of the better ways to take care of this, as it can help to alleviate the pain and discomfort of knee issues while also protecting the joint from further strain. Bauerfeind have a range of anatomically designed golf knee braces that have been clinically proven to relieve the symptoms of arthritis on a short and long-term basis.
Can I wear these all day or just when I play?
Most of our Performance line is designed for wear during active movement rather than all day, while our main range (products ending in "Train" or "Loc") are better suited for injury management and all day wear, whether it's sports, exercise, work or just chores around the house.
If you're unsure if the support you're looking at is ideal for all day wear, just give us a call on 1300 668 466.
Will these change how I play?
While any kind of brace or support will have an affect on your physical movement, it's in a positive sense. More stability in the joints and muscles, increased power with each movement and better balance mean that you'll move more effectively.
