Basketball Knee Braces & Supports

Basketball is especially hard on the knees. It is crucial to protect your knees while playing a sport that applies a lot of force to the knees from jumping, cutting, and sprinting up and down the court. Some of the most common knee injuries incurred during basketball are knee sprains, ACL injuries, meniscus tears, and hyperextended knees. Often times, these injuries can be prevented by wearing a knee brace to support the knee joint. Our bracing experts recommend the following as the best knee braces and sleeves to properly protect the knee and surrounding ligaments for basketball. Need help selecting a brace for basketball?

Prevent Basketball Knee Injuries

With the high occurrence of knee injuries associated with basketball, it is extremely important for athletes to take measures to prevent knee injuries before and during the basketball season. Whether you play recreationally or competitively, strengthening your knees and the surrounding ligaments is beneficial. This includes strengthening your quads, hamstrings, hips, and glutes. A strong lower body combined with wearing a knee brace can dramatically lower your chances of injuring you knee when you play basketball. For knee injury prevention, we recommend wearing a compression knee sleeve, knee band, or soft hinged knee brace. For those who have been previously injured, we recommend wearing a hinged knee brace which will help support the knee ligament in the weaker spots.

Don't let basketball injuries stop you this season. If you injured your ACL, follow these tips on how to get back in the game after an ACL tear.
