Baseball season is well underway which also means that injuries during baseball are on the rise. Baseball players are at risk for injury in the knees, ankles, elbows, back, shoulders and even the wrists. There are lots of different ways these injuries can occur while playing baseball, such as when sliding in to base, long hours of squatting as a catcher, from repetitive throwing, during a powerful swing, or even simply when running.
It’s important to wear baseball braces and supports when participating in this sport. They help support and stabilize the joints to ensure that your body moves naturally. Some baseball braces also add gentle compression to provide extra strength to the areas that need it. They’re great for both preventing injuries and giving added support to those who have had previous baseball injuries.
