Which Knee Support Do I Need?
Our knees are impacted by many daily activities. Knee supports can help manage the pain by offering stability and support to the joint, but with so many choices, which one should you pick? Here’s our guide.
Joint supports help to protect and support muscles and joints where injury may occur or has already occurred. They offer compression, warmth and support helping to ease pain and discomfort. There are a number of different supports available so depending on the area you need to treat, you can choose the right support for you. Wrist supports offer relief and support from sprains and injuries as well as conditions such as arthritis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. They can also be worn as a preventative measure to offer protection to the wrist. Similarly, ankle supports and knee supports help to ease the pain in these joints caused by injury or ongoing joint conditions. The support they offer can also help to improve mobility. Certain sports, including racket sports and some occupations can cause repetitive strain injury to the elbow. Elbow supports provide protection and support helping to ease the pain and discomfort this brings. They can also be worn by those with arthritis in the elbow and those who have suffered injury to the elbow. Poor posture can result in back pain and discomfort. Back supports can help to correct posture thereby relieving the pressure on the muscles and joints in the back. They also offer warmth and compression and can be worn to help prevent injury occurring.
