As the weather warms up, more and more people are taking to outdoor sports. Unfortunately, when playing sports, injuries can and do happen. If you have experienced a torn MCL, PCL, or ACL in the past, you are more susceptible to injure your knee again. A common injury for many teens and adults is an injured knee. Preventative care is the best way to ensure that injuries do not occur. The best way to do this is to wear a knee brace when playing sports.
There are many braces available, but what is the best knee brace? If you play sports often, then you want to find a brace that is comfortable, offers excellent support to prevent further injury, and allows you to have a good range of motion. Mueller Sports offers two different braces that can help you get back out on the playing field and enjoying what you love.
The HG80 Hinged Knee Brace is made with breathable fabric that helps keep sweat off of your skin to ensure the brace stays firmly in place. It has a unique hourglass shape to fit your knee perfectly as well as a hinge for optimum support and movement. It moves with your knee and allows your leg to move in its full range of motion. This is the best knee brace for people who experience a floating kneecap or have knee pain.
The HG80 Knee Brace uses supportive steel springs on both sides of the knee to help keep it supported but still allowing the joint to move normally. This brace is made with anti-microbial material and helps resist sweat to keep the brace in place. This brace is best used for stiff, sore, or floating knees.
