WHY SHOULD I WEAR A KNEE BRACE 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.
Poor skiing technique or incorrect landing from a skiing jump can be a cause of knee injuries. ACL tears are common when skiers are trying to stand up to try and prevent an unavoidable fall, called a phandom foot phenomenon.
To prevent or avoid knee injuries when skiing, we recommend wearing Bauerfeind knee braces which help to promote the blood flow through the 3D weave medical grade compression.
This is something which is not found in simple neoprene sleeves or cheaper braces.The added support from a brace will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to enjoy your next black run or slalom ski race.
WHAT IS THE BEST KNEE SUPPORT TO USE WHEN SKIING?
If you feel niggles in your knee or have been diagnosed and a knee brace recommended as part of your treatment, choosing the right knee brace is key to a speedier rehabilitation journey and reduction in pain. Choosing the right knee brace will give you peace of mind while you engage in 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.
The GenuTrain S is a good knee support to prevent skiing related injuries. The joint splints guide the knee, providing lateral movement support while keeping the area stable. This improves sensorimotor function for maximum movement control.
