Selecting a Running Brace
Our legs absorb most of the shock between our feet and the ground as we run. This means running can put a lot of stress on our knees, leading to knee pain or in some cases even ligament or cartilage tears. Other types of knee injuries caused by running include runner’s knee, patellar tendonitis and jumper’s knee. Aside from knee injuries, ankle sprains are common when running on uneven surfaces like trails. Runners with chronic ankle instability may also feel unsteady when running which is where an ankle brace will be of great benefit. Running braces help provide the extra support and compression needed when moving around, keeping your joints healthy and alleviating pain.
For faster recovery, remember to cool down, stretch, and ice after your run.
