Knee protection that won't get in your way on the court.
Proactively protecting your knees with a brace for support while playing basketball is one of the best ways to prevent common knee injuries and in some cases, serious ligament damage. Basketball is extremely hard on the knees and all the running and jumping causes heavy impact to the knees which lead to overuse injuries, ligament tears, or knee sprains. It is extremely important for anyone who plays basketball 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 a knee brace, they are reducing shock to the knee and providing stability to the joint.

The best way to help keep yourself in the game this basketball season is to protect each of your knees while playing basketball. That way you can avoid the pain and suffering that comes with knee injuries and you won’t have to worry about missing a game (or the entire season) while you recover.
