The knee is one of the most stressed joints in the body. Almost all daily activities would be inconceivable without the knee joint. Walking, running, standing up - many movements depend on the knee.
It is not only age, overweight or sport that can take their toll on the knee joint. The complexity of the rotational hinge joint makes it quite susceptible to injury and wear and tear. In addition to osteoarthritis and cartilage damage, cruciate ligament injuries or meniscus injuries are not uncommon. In particular, sports with a high knee load, such as soccer, squash or skiing, unfortunately not infrequently lead to injuries or overloads.
A knee brace can stabilize the injured or overused knee joint and thus help it heal. In any case, you should see a doctor if you suspect a knee injury or if you experience pain, swelling or cracking in your knee. In many cases, bandages are then part of the conservative treatment option, but they can also help rest the knee after surgery.
Alternatively, bandages are also suitable for prophylaxis and prevention. Especially during sports, a knee bandage provides additional support and more stability. Sprains or other injuries occur less frequently when wearing a bandage.
