Earlier this week we posted about how to prevent football injuries. Knee injuries are especially common in football because of the tackling, sharp turns and lateral movement in the sport. Wearing football knee braces can help prevent injuries to the knee when playing. Here are some of the top football knee braces:
DonJoy Armor Knee Brace with FourcePoint Hinge – Great after an injury has occurred, but more importantly it can also help prevent an injury from happening in the first place. Comes with the patented FourcePoint hinge which is the only knee brace hinge proven to prevent ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injuries.
DonJoy Playmaker Knee Brace – This knee brace also comes with the FourcePoint hinge. It conforms to your knee’s natural motion so you won’t feel restricted when moving around.
DonJoy Deluxe Hinged Knee Brace – A knee brace designed for maximum patient comfort. It provides knee stability before or after injury and is also easy on your wallet.
DonJoy FullForce Ligament Knee Brace – This knee brace is especially designed to help protect the ligaments in the knee, including the ACL, PCL (posterior cruciate ligament), MCL (medial collateral ligament) and LCL (medial collateral ligament).
