Wearing a knee support after an injury helps to protect and stabilize your knee and improve rehabilitation endurance. Knee braces work to relieve pressure and improve stability to help aid the recovery and rehabilitation. There are different knee braces for all different types of injuries whether damaged by high kinetic energy sports such as skiing, motorsport, or wakeboarding. Lower kinetic energy sports such as football or rugby don't need such high impact control, so it's important not only to wear a brace that matches the reason for the injury, but the brace also needs to be matched to the ligaments that need support and control. If a knee brace is chosen without professional assistance, there is potent for inadequate coverage which can cause long-term damage to the knee joint.
