Running Knee Braces

The most common injury that runners face is a knee injury. Knee injuries are often caused by overuse, muscle imbalances, improper gear, running too much too soon, or not being properly warmed up. Common knee injuries runners face include runner’s knee, IT Band pain, to tendonitis or patellar tracking issues. If you have been injured, as difficult as it might be to do, take a break from running. By taking a break, icing your knees, and supporting your knee with a brace, you can recovery faster. If you must keep on running, wear one of our knee braces specific for running to help relieve knee pain and support your joints.

    Why Wear a Knee Brace When Running?

Whether you run casually or professionally, running can have a significant impact on your knees. The constant force between your legs and the ground puts strain on the ligaments and cartilage that support your knee. This can cause knee pain, tendonitis, or even wear away the padding under your knee cap. Running on softer surfaces and wearing a running knee brace may help prevent some of these issues. Knee braces for running will apply pressure to the tendons in the area, which helps disperse the shock to your knees. If you run on a regular basis, take preventative measures now to keep your knees healthy!
