Protect Your Knees While Playing Basketball
Just like any sport that involves a lot of running, basketball can be extremely hard on the knees. There is a lot of running and jumping involved in basketball, which causes impact to the knees and can often lead to many different types of knee injuries, including ligament tears or knee sprains. It is important that anyone who plays basketball makes sure to protect their knees. This is why you see so many basketball players, including professionals, wearing knee braces on both of their knees. By wearing basketball knee braces, they are reducing the shock to their knees, as well as providing stability to the joints.
The DonJoy Drytex Playmaker Wraparound/Sleeve knee brace is popular with many basketball players and athletes, because it not only provides compression for support, but is very comfortable to wear for long periods of time and allows uninhibited movement. The DonJoy Drytex Playmaker Knee Brace is ideal for those who have mild to moderate knee conditions, including ACL, PCL, MCL and LCL instabilities.

No player wants to be sitting on the bench, recovering from a knee injury, while the rest of his or her team is out on the court. The best way to help keep yourself in the game this basketball season is to wear basketball knee braces on each of your knees. That way you may avoid the pain and suffering that comes with basketball knee injuries and you won’t have to worry about missing a game (or the entire season) while you recover.
