Which Knee Support Do I Need?

Our knees are impacted by many daily activities, whether that be running upstairs, walking to the shops, getting up from a chair or bending down to pick something up. When knee injury occurs, it can not only be extremely painful, but it can affect our ability to carry on with our daily routine. Additionally, some chronic medical conditions, such as arthritis can affect the knees and can cause considerable pain and discomfort. Knee supports can help manage the pain by offering stability and support to the joint which can improve mobility allowing you to continue with your daily activities. Knee supports are also often worn to help prevent injury or reinjury and are particularly popular with those who play sports and exercise regularly.
