Reduce injury risk while skiing

Skiing accidents happen quickly. Have you twisted your knee? That is a very common skiing injury. About one third of all skiing injuries each season concern the knee joint. Many of those affected will still complain about knee pain during skiing, even after regeneration and strength training. Even without a previous injury, it is quite common that you feel pain in your knees sometimes. With a little know-how and by wearing a knee support during skiing, you will be ready for the next run – enjoying yourself without pain.

Whether the knee pain is related to an injury or not, by wearing a knee support during skiing, you can

  • prevent knee injuries,
  • improve your sense of stability in the knee,
  • prevent excessive strain in the knee joint, and
  • alleviate knee pain when skiing.

The important thing in the case of knee pain when skiing is to avoid excessive strain! Skiing means a lot of strain on the muscles and ligaments – for the knee joint, in particular. Lateral strain and rotations apply huge pressure on the menisci and pull on the ligaments. The enormous pressure and tensile loads can cause pain and lead to injuries. Furthermore, the vibrations from the hard and uneven surface put even more strain on the muscles and joints.
To prevent sore muscles, good preparation for the skiing season is essential. If muscles are not trained well enough, misalignments of the knees can occur, resulting in knee pain. You need well-trained muscles for improved control of the knees and effective pain prevention. Wearing a knee support during skiing offers additional help.

The importance of the pad – skiing after tearing the cruciate ligament

Skiing after meniscus surgery? Skiing after cruciate ligament surgery or skiing without a cruciate ligament? In many cases, people can go skiing again six months after a knee surgery. After an injury is healed, or in the case of worn joints, compression - for the protection and optimization of knee function - is not enough. That is why the Bauerfeind Sports Knee Support combines compression with a pad. The knee support features a ring-shaped pad for the proper guidance of the kneecap.

Benefits of compression: promoting circulation & proprioception

The external pressure increases circulation and proprioception, meaning the perception of body movement and spatial position. The increased circulation improves the supply of nutrients and promotes regeneration in the case of microtraumas. Improved depth perception leads to you being more aware of signals from the knee, therefore benefiting from an improved conscious and subconscious control over the knee. By wearing a sports support, you are reducing inappropriate mechanical stress preventing knee pain, and you are increasing your sense of stability.
