WHAT IS THE BEST TREATMENT FOR LCL INJURIES?
A common knee injury occurs to the lateral collateral ligament (LCL) which can get torn or sprained from direct force trauma. The LCL is a ligament, or band of tissue, that runs along the outer side of your knee. It helps to hold the bones together so that your knee joint remains stable when you move.
Symptoms of an LCL injury can range from mild to severe, including swelling of the knee, stiffness and locking, pain on the outside of the knee and instability.
Bauerfeind’s high-quality knee supports or braces with medical-grade compression target the symptoms and instabilities associated with LCL injuries.
We have appropriate braces dedicated to minimise the pain and swelling to help complement and facilitate the recovery process. The gentle fabric is comfortable and flexible, allowing you to perform everyday activities without any restrictions to movement.
OLYMPIC VOLLEYBALL CHAMPION ADENIZIA WEARS GENUTRAIN S FOR HER INJURIES
Take a look at Olympic champion Adenizia Ferreira wearing GenuTrain S in both her knees and the MalleoTrain to treat her volleyball injuries. The GenuTrain S is a hinged knee brace ideal for LCL injuries.
The knee brace provides extra lateral stability to support lateral collateral ligament damage through the joint splints on the side. The gel support massages the tendon muscles to improve recovery.
