Are you wanting to know if you can play basketball with a knee support on? Yes you can, but you need to know how to pick the right one. Read on for more information.

Things for you to think about :

1.) Knee supports were created in order for you to get added stability and to help reduce your knee pain. Sometimes people can not play basketball without a knee support on actually. This is something to consider for yourself. - If you are currently having knee pain, or instability this issue may worsen if you continue to insult your knee joint. Even minor insults to your knee can add up over time and this is easy to do when you play basketball. All the running, jumping, stopping and starting is a natural part of the game, but these movements can injure you over the long run as well.

2.) Every knee support is not the same. This does not mean that one style is good and another style is necessarily bad... What we are trying to tell you is that there are some basic differences that you should be aware of. For example, if you have minor knee pain or a mild knee issue then you can use something that is referred to as an elastic knee brace, or knee sleeve for some added support. You may know of the best basketball player of all time using one when he played. (Initials : MJ) These knee sleeves can help you by acting as a reminder. Sometimes, this is all a person will need when it comes to knee supports.

Moreover, you can also use more higher profile knee braces if your pain has graduated from mild to moderate or severe. These knee braces typically will have additional medial and lateral supportive uprights. In addition, these uprights will be connected to a knee joint. Knee ROM (range of motion) is still allowed, but the individual will now have more support, to the point where excessive movements are limited. This can be a very helpful thing and should not be overlooked.

Basketball is an awesome game. Seriously! You already know this.... Knee braces can be a man's new best friend when it comes to playing basketball. The stability that they help provide can greatly help to reduce your knee pain and help keep you out there on the court.
