Knee sleeves are used to prevent sports injuries and to assist in sports after an injury. Before introducing knee sleeves, let’s briefly talk about sports injuries to the lower knee. The knee joint is most susceptible to two types of injuries: – ligament and cartilage injuries.
Ligaments are bundles of muscular fibrous tissue that connect the bones around the joint. Ligament injuries can cause swelling, pain and muscle spasms. A ligament injury is when the connection between the bones goes wrong and there is a feeling of instability.
There are two types of cartilage injuries, a torn meniscus and a softened patella. The meniscus is the cartilage pad of the knee joint. When the knee twists rapidly, the meniscus can be damaged by strong pressure, which can lead to damage and inflammation of the meniscus and meniscal tears. The patella is the bone that protrudes from the knee. Excessive wear and tear and abnormal joint twisting during sports can damage the cartilage of the patella and eventually lead to patellar tenderness. Many injuries to the knee ligaments, meniscus and patella are the result of abnormal twisting or unstable trajectory of the lower leg tibia. Athletes, general exercisers, and those with a history of injury or excess weight may choose to wear knee pads for exercise.
The principle of a knee sleeves is to apply a certain amount of pressure to the joint to ensure that the trajectory of the joint is stable. At the same time, the knee brace can play a role in protecting the joint in case of abnormal twisting and hyperextension. In general, people without knee injuries can use our knee sleeves. However, it is important to emphasize that ordinary knee sleeves also need to be binding and flexible, otherwise they will only keep you warm.
