Knee Braces for Skiing

Skiing is fantastic exercise and plenty of fun. If you want to be able to enjoy an entire ski season in the best of health, it's important that you take the necessary steps to protect yourself from injury or care for yourself if you have previously been hurt on or off the slopes. Walgreens can help you adhere to your doctor's ski safety guidelines with a selection of knee braces that are ideal for skiers.

Knee Braces for Reducing Injury Risks

Knee braces may provide support for the knee joint and help to keep it stable when you're skiing or engaging in other sports. Research has not been able to clearly determine if knee braces can reduce the risk of an injury. However, some people who wear knee braces feel that they help. You should seek your doctor's advice if you want to use a brace to help prevent any knee problems.

Wearing a Brace to Return to Skiing

Many skiers suffer knee injuries at some point in their lives and that usually means taking some time off from the slopes. If you've been injured, your doctor or health care provider may recommend that you wear a brace when you are cleared to begin skiing again. A brace can help you avoid placing excessive strain on the ligaments in the knee. Depending on how recent your injury was, the type of injury, and its severity, your doctor may recommend anything from a simple sleeve stabilizer to a more supportive metal-reinforced knee brace.

Choosing the Right Knee Brace to Hit the Slopes

The most important part of choosing the right knee brace for skiing is to follow your doctor's guidelines in terms of the shape, style and structure of the brace. You'll also want to make sure that you select a brace that is the right size for your needs. If a brace is too loose, it cannot provide adequate support for the joint, and one that is too tight can reduce your ability to move safely. The product descriptions will provide sizing information to help you select the right option. It is a good idea to measure the diameter size of your calf and thigh prior to shopping.
