Knee straps

Knee straps are a lightweight, quick and effective way for runner to help elevate pain in their kneecap which can be brought on by injuries such as runners’ knee, tendinitis and Osgood Schlatter’s disease which runners commonly develop due to the high amount of stress and shock they put the tendons in their knees.

Knee straps go around the knee cap and through compression and support help to relieve painful symptoms and some can help to absorb shock and keep the knee positioned correctly reducing tightness and stress which may contribute to injury.

ACL knee injuries

An Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury can cause your knees to be weakened and affected so the knee functions not how they used to or should do. You may find that your once injured knee is unstable and cannot support your weight as well this can also increase your risk of recurrence of injury as the Anterior Cruciate Ligament will not only be weakened and less flexible for stretching and twisting; the supporting knees will also be weakened through inactivity. This is why knee supports are so widely used after an injury. Orthotic supports are also used in sport to help prevent injury and to improve function and efficiency of the knee and leg.

For rehabilitation

Knee braces and supports worn for rehabilitation after ACL knee injury surgery has been shown to help improve function, flexibility and range of movement as well as preventing the injury reoccurring. It is thought that 87% of orthopaedic surgeons recommend knee braces after surgery. However, it is really important to remember that you should not get back into playing sports too soon and that this is crucial in preventing reoccurring injury. Making sure that you only start playing again only when your injured knee can function 90% as good as your un-injured knee.

For sport

The majority of runners during their running career will succumb to a knee injury (at least once if they are lucky). Many knee injuries can be a prevalent problem with knee pain coming back time after time this is because often ligaments and tissues in the knee can become permanently damaged and weakened and this is why knee supports are so appreciated in the running world.

Many sport professionals will wear a knee support because of the improved proprioception (improved muscle and body part awareness and coordination) that the supports often help to give them. With better sense of the function, movement and positioning of the knees which in turn can help keep your knees and legs gain more stability as well as helping you stay aware of how and where your knee is positioned which can help to prevent injury from twisting and turning in a way that could cause damage which can cause not just ACL injuries but other types of knee injuries too.

Better proprioception also helps you better understand your limits and how far you can push yourself stopping you from straining and overusing your ligaments in your knee. Knee supports aren’t just good for better overall awareness of your knees but also to help prevent tightness in your ligaments such as your anterior cruciate ligament as well as your Iliotibial Band. Tightness in your ligaments can cause tension and increased friction making you more susceptible to overuse and straining and pulling these ligaments especially if you are playing sport where there will be sudden jolts, shocks and stretching and movement. Knee supports help through compression helping to correct bio-mechanical imbalances that may result in tension and this tightness in your ligaments. Knee supports and braces have also been proven to help correct form and function in people’s knee helping them to maintain good form and function of the knee which can drastically reduce risk of sprains, overuse injuries and damage to the knee.

Not only all of that but force applied to the ACL when wearing them is also reduced this considerably helping to minimize reoccurrence of ACL injuries on a weakened ACL.
