The most popular sport in the world, dates back many centuries, and is characterized by rapid movement, in a somewhat straight line with sequences of dribbling and rapid changes of direction and, unfortunately, many accidents with or without the help of the opponent (tackles). The combination of these movements (fast changes of direction, falls and twists) can cause many injuries of particularly to the knees and ankles. As with all sports conditions, it is necessary to distinguish between the traumatic injuries (accidents and injuries) and problems of overload (too much sport, jumps, unsuitable terrain, inappropriate shoes).

Injuries

In the case of injuries, the knee and ankle are primarily affected. Mild or severe ligament lesions (sprains) can often occur. After consultation with a physician, it may be necessary to prescribe braces to assist in the healing of the joint.

The knee

If a mild sprain is detected, such as impairment of medial collateral ligament, the brace Hinged Knee Skin has demonstrated the best efficacy-lightness-support. It helps the healing along the anatomical axis of injured ligaments thanks to lateral reinforcements throughout the time period prescribed by your physician. Its implementation is easy even if the joint is painful and it can not be easily bent. In addition, this brace is useful in the return to your favorite sport after injury. In the case of serious breaches, such as the rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament and a dislocated kneecap, your physician may prescribe a Long Bracewear articulated with lateral reinforcement, which can limit the movement of the joint (after surgery, for example). Again, its implementation is easy even with pain or swollen joints.

Ankle

Football is a sport that will have you twisting your ankle ligaments, with or without the help of the opponent (tackles, duels). Unleveled grass playing fields can easily promote sprains often. After a visit to a physician, and once serious problems are eliminated, you may be prescribed supporting ligaments. In this situation the Trilok brace is recommended. Easy to place on the ankle, it fits snugly under laced shoes, and features bands that allow you to apply the appropriate tension. It is no surprise that this has now become the no. 1 accessory for professional basketball players.

We have sourced the most popular tapes used throughout the world of sports to help you make your choice. So if you do not know which to choose, we have done the work for you. Just talk to your physician or physical therapist to learn how to best implement them.

 

After injury

And like any traumatic event or in the case of joint pain, cold pack bandages can be used to give comfort to your aching joints after an accident (shock, sprains) or in the case of tendonitis, for example. With its easy application, ease of use, and a unique gel that does not harden even when frozen it allows for an optimal application to the injured joint. The cold action relieves pain and allows for better mobilization of the joint.

Practiced by thousands of people around the world, and despite the injuries encountered, football remains the No. 1 sports, unfortunately also for injuries!
