Knee Braces for Snowboarding

HOW CAN I PREVENT OR AVOID A KNEE INJURY WHEN SNOWBOARDING?

 

Snowboarding and skiing are highly exhilarating sports, however they have a huge risk of injuries. Majority of lower extremity injuries in snowboarding are knee injuries.

Common snowboarding knee injuries include meniscus tear, ACL injury, MCL injury, sprains and strains due to falling from losing control. Investing in a Genutrain or Sports Performance knee brace is a good preventive measure to protect your knee and prevent the risk of another injury. 

Bauerfeind knee braces provide medical grade compression which promotes blood flow and eliminates lactic acid accumulated in the knee area.

This can prevent sprain and strain injuries and stabilise the knee joint, providing a greater range of motion. Invest in a knee brace and prepare well for your next Aussie Thredbo Supertrail. 

 

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT KNEE BRACE FOR SNOWBOARDING?

 

If you have weak knees or have suffered a knee injury previously, we recommend wearing the GenuTrain S-hinged knee brace. This brace is ideal for snowboarding as the hinge prevents hyperextension of the knee which is the primary cause of ACL injuries in snowboarding.

If you have healthy and strong knees, a Sports Performance Support or a GenuTrain can assist in preventing knee injury. Make sure you have the perfect fit when you buy any brace.
