Best Knee Support For Running

SHOULD I WEAR A KNEE SUPPORT WHEN RUNNING?

 

Uneven surfaces and fatigue carry with them the risk of injury. Some runners also suffer from unstable ligaments and tendons.

Due to the biomechanical forces acting on the leg during the running movement, the knees are an easy target for knee injury.

A study conducted by British Journal of Sports Medicine reported that more than half of running injuries are knee injuries. 

A preventative measure to avoid knee pain from running and potential knee injuries is wearing a Bauerfeind Sports Knee Support or the GenuTrain knee brace.

It can minimise your chances of injury by providing enhanced stability and proprioception with medical-grade compression.

The medical grade compression helps in draining out accumulated lactic acid during the recovery period.

 

ATHLETE AGNES WEARING THE SPORTS KNEE SUPPORT

 

Take a look at elite athlete and hiker, Agnes Christine wearing the Sports Knee Support for added knee support and for preventing knee injuries. 

We do not recommend using a cheap neoprene knee brace or knee sleeves. These sleeves offer little support and are not moisture-wicking. Combined this decreases the durability of the knee brace.

Protect your joints so you can enjoy your next marathon, 10k, 5k, bushwalk or trail run.

      HOW TO TREAT A RUNNING INJURY?

      We recommend visiting a physiotherapist for treatment and advice on treating common running injuries. They may recommend the following treatments.
      • Strains or Sprains. Many sprains and strains can be treated with the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. A good physiotherapist can assist with the recovery however prevention is always better than cure.
      • Runner’s Knee. This is the common name for patellofemoral pain syndrome. This is often due to abnormal mechanics caused by problems close to the knee, forcing the patella to bump against the femoral groove. We recommend speaking with a running specific physiotherapist, they will usually review your running form as well tissue and musculature.
      • Ligament Tearing. Ligament tears will generally always require surgery. A torn ligament rebuild uses a tissue graft, as the ligament will not generally heal properly otherwise. Surgery can be minimally invasive however these injuries may take considerable time to heal.
