These range from cumulative injuries from overuse of the joint, such as practicing a certain kick again and again, to acute injuries which occur where there is a violent force or sudden impact. Cumulative injuries can often be healed or at least managed with rest, care and proper support, but acute injuries will often require surgery followed by a term of rehabilitation or other post surgical care. Whether you are suffering from cumulative or acute injuries, protecting your knee is of utmost importance on the soccer field.

To help you keep this valuable joint safe and protected on the field, there are a number of different knee braces available, depending on the type of support you need. Knee braces range from simple compression fit sleeves that help the knee recover from minor or cumulative injuries to full braces with metal hinged brackets to protect the knee and provide additional support after major injury and/ or surgery.

Once the knee has been injured, it’s particularly important to provide additional support and protection to keep it from being reinsured. What can be fixed once cannot always be fixed twice. Here are a list of some of the top knee braces for 2017.

Buyers guide – how to choose from the wide variety of knee braces for soccer on the market

When choosing a knee brace there are a number of factors to consider. The first is whether the brace is to be used for general relief of pains and strains, to prevent injury or to guard and protect against further injury after surgery. In addition, your level of play is also a factor.

Simple compression sleeves offer relief from general discomfort and are often worn by elite athletes in basketball, baseball and all other sports but they don’t provide a high degree of stability and support.

For relief from more serious injury, a more sturdy and stable brace is optimal and for additional support after surgery, a brace with a bilateral hinge support will provide the most protection against further injury. Price is also a factor to consider. The more frequently you play, the greater the investment you might consider making in high functioning support.
