No matter how hard you train, an injury can sideline you for the season... or for good. The key to staying in the game is injury prevention. Football places a large amount of impact on your knees. ACL braces
are essential because playing football puts your ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) at risk for injury. Football players put an extra amount of pressure on their knees because of all the tackling, sharp turning, and lateral movement in this sport. All this movement can move your tibia (shin bone) and femur (thigh bone) in ways that overstretch and strain the ligaments in the knee. A football knee brace helps reduce the chances of this happening, and keeps you on the field longer and your body healthier. Our bracing experts recommend these knee braces for football players.
