The stress it has to absorb due to movements such as running, jumping, landing from jumps, twisting, turning and other repetitive motions can all add up to one big problem. Not only does the knee have to absorb the weight of the body, but it also has to absorb the added pressure applied from impact with the ground from these other dynamic movements.What can we do to protect yourself and prevent an injury from occurring?While we can not prevent all kinds of knee injuries, we can do our best to protect ourselves by wearing a sport knee brace. Giving the knee support can help stabilize the joint and also protect the surrounding ligaments. Tearing of the ACL, MCL, or a meniscus tear are some of the most common knee injuries that take place. These kinds of injuries can also be hard to heal because for most of us simply staying off our feet is not an option.
