    Default Knee Support

    I would like to buy myself a knee support. Since I have never bought one before, I would want to ask for your opinion. Which brand do you think produces the best knee support and has a reasonable price?
    I saw Taufik wearing a black yonex knee support but I have never seen it in stores. I tried google too but I can't find it. Any idea? Maybe its a different brand with yonex logo printed on it?

    What about phiten? Is phiten a good brand? The price of a knee support is scary though. Rm400+ for one.
    And does nike sell a short knee support? All I see are those super long ones. Thanks in advance.

    May i know the reason you want to use knee support?? Ligament issues? Joint pains? Just a precaution?

    LP has some good products and reasonable prices. I bought a couple of it. You can find them in Jaya Jusco or Guardian Pharmacy's.

    It depends on which one you want. It can range from a few dollars to hundreds.

    Hi,

    There is not too much help for joint pain due to
    the lost of the "gel" between bones..
    (Pain cause by bone againest bone.)

    But for jumper's pain. (due to muscle pull when jump)
    the best way is just use a strap.

    sorry, not meant to hijack the thread.
    Speaking of strap, will strap also help cramp?
    When I play long game (4 or more sets of 21points) and I move alot, I often get cramp on my leg (not sure the name, it show Gastrocnemius on http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Gray1240.png)
    will strap on that part of muscle help to reduce chance of cramp?

    Don't think so...
    You just need more warm up before games.

    Hmm. Then, do straps do the same job as what a knee support can?

    A strap is to help tendon pain by diffusing the force from the muscles.
    Braces support joints by reinforcing stability in cases of muscle imbalance or ligament strain.

    Most store bought sleeves will do little to help a big joint like a knee if there is something seriously wrong. But it can give a little support. There are also certain braces that are to help keep your kneecap sliding properly in-line.

    All this to say, you should never push a joint too far. Seek advice form doc, or physio. If in doubt, don't play on a suspect joint.

    If you start to feel knee pain then rest is the best option. Continuing to play will only damage the knee further.

    Default knee strap-

    well even after a short rest u may have to accept a fact is that a person bodily cell/ muscle takes time to heal.
    being playing like twenty years and as such the pounding of feet exerted on knee will be utmost concern.
    cartillage worn out n muscle strains ..so its better to have knee strap to keep this problem at bay...the lunging, lateral movement n smashing will exert a certain stress.
    Straps in a way keeps ur in check(tighter) always...

    I still don't get it.. aren't those two things 'supposed' to be helping me out? Haha. I can't stand the pain. After playing for an hour or so without any problems, I can't sit down. My knees would hurt like hell if I try. And if I did, I can't lunge without pain.

    These are signs that you really should have a professional examine the knee, before relying on a store bought-brace (with yonex symbol or not).

    Mueller knee straps are ok, but you should seriously consider going to a professional

    Kubuk,
    What is your age and how often do you play?
    My advise is just go to GH, get the sports injury doctor to have a look and follow the physio schedule. At least you will know the cause for the knee pains.
