Best Knee Braces For Pain When Squatting

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO HELP WITH KNEE PAIN FROM SQUATTING? 

Squatting is a very common movement that is performed as part of our everyday activity (e.g. squatting to pick something up or with weights).

Sometimes you may feel a pain or discomfort behind your kneecap or in the structures surrounding the knee joint.

This can be caused by muscular imbalances, causing the kneecap to move in a way that causes pain or be related to a medical condition like arthritis.

Bauerfeind’s high-quality knee supports or braces with medical-grade compression target the pain symptoms and instabilities associated with squatting.

We have appropriate braces dedicated to minimise the tension and discomfort you may feel in your knee through the gentle massage provided from the viscoelastic padding embedded in the brace.

The gentle fabric is comfortable and flexible, allowing you to continually perform everyday activities like squatting without any restrictions to movement.

A good knee brace for squatting is our bestselling GenuTrain, which provides targeted support for pain relief of the knee. Take a look at Sandra Kaminski wearing the GenuTrain in both her knees to support her when squatting during her training.

WHY DOES MY KNEE HURT WHEN SQUATTING?


Not using proper form when squatting can aggravate the knee and lead to pain. Make sure your knees stay behind your toes and push your rear outwards. Your glutes should be supporting most of the weight. 

 

HOW TO HELP MINIMISE OR MANAGE KNEE PAIN WHEN SQUATTING?

 

  • Physical therapy. Strengthening exercises prescribed from your physiotherapist or exercise physiologist help to build muscles around the knee, easing the load on the joints and reducing pain.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and analgesic may be helpful for pain management.
  • Stretching. Lessen stiffness and reduce pain through stretching exercises.

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