Thread: Knee Support
07-01-2008, 06:08 AM #1
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.

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?

I think it is called calf muscle.

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

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.

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.

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

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.
