That’s why we’ve gathered together some of our favorite knee pads and braces for basketball players. Whether you’re looking for something that will help keep your knees comfortable for hours of playing time or something that will keep them safe from any potential injuries, we’ve got what you need.
Here are our top picks:
First things first: When it comes to knee compression brace, there are two main types of injuries: cartilage damage and ligament damage. Cartilage damage is known as a “chondral lesion,” and it usually occurs when the knee is hit from the side, causing the patella (or kneecap) to dislocate from its normal position and move out of place. Ligament damage can occur when your knee is twisted while bent at an awkward angle—even if nothing hits your knee directly.
In both cases, wearing a brace can help keep things stable so that your knee doesn’t get any more damaged than it already has been. If you’re looking for a knee compression to protect against cartilage damage specifically, look for one that has extra padding around the patella—this will cushion it from further impact if it becomes dislocated again.
If you have ligament damage, however—and especially if it’s severe enough that surgery is recommended—you should talk with a doctor before buying any kind of knee brace support on your own.
Knee pads are great for:
– Casual players who want some extra protection during their games.
– People with minor knee injuries who just want to get back into the game without pain.
– People who aren’t worried about looking professional while they play.
Knee braces are great for:
– Players who need support and stability in their basketball knee brace while playing.
– People who have moderate to severe injuries or arthritis that impacts their mobility when playing basketball (or other sports).
– Anyone who wants to look professional when playing on a team or in an organized league
So which one is right for you? The answer depends on what kind of protection you need from your sport—and what kind of injuries you have already sustained as an athlete. Some people find that knee braces are too restrictive for them to wear during games but still want some protection from injury when practicing skills outside gym class at home.
