When should you use knee support?

by Nordic Training Gear 3 min read

The knees are one of the body parts that are exposed to the most load, shock and pressure. During training and sports, knee injuries are one of the most common types of injuries that occur. Knee injuries often occur due to improper loading, overexertion, weakness or inflammation of muscles. It is important to quickly identify the type of knee injury you have suffered, so that you can then try to stabilize the knee again.

If you have weak knees, you can quickly discover this. Both during everyday activities and during training. The knee is a central and very sensitive joint that can easily be damaged regardless of whether you are very active or not active at all. If you move too little, the knees need support, but if you move too much, the knees can be overloaded.

It is important to pay attention to if you start to get sensations in your knees. Then it may be time to start using, for example, knee support early on as a preventive measure. By using knee pads, you can get stability and support in your knee joints. A knee support that is stabilizing with a comfortable compression can be used for support both in everyday life and during training.
