Thread: Knee Support

  1. #1

    Default Knee Support

    Hi all, I am looking for recommendations of knee supports. Tweaked my knee a couple of months back, a small ligament tear, it is healing well but when I am back training I want to give my knee the best chance possible.

    Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    I'm not a huge fan of off-the-peg knee supports for minor ligament injuries.

    I tend to use tape instead - http://rocktape.net is where I get most of mine from. They also have a handy series of videos showing you how to use it. http://rocktape.net/how-to-use.html

    It can work out a bit more pricey than just buying a support, but in my opinion more effective.

    Rosi,

    I've been seeing alot of people with these "tape" thingys... even in the olympics people were using them last summer...

    but also noticed these too..

    ????

    so is the tape stuff a bit like a temporary support/cast type of thing?

    saw a squash player too with tape on his knee at a certain angle to help drain the fluid...

    very curious now...
