The excitement of perfect tackles, touchdowns, and interceptions are just some of the reasons why football is one of the most energizing sports to participate in. However, did you know that football rakes in the most injuries per sport? From sprinting down the field to being tackled, football players face injury risks with nearly every yard, especially when it comes to their knees. Fortunately, taking preventative measures against knee pain is one of the best options to ensure that your football season is not cut short.

Preventing Knee Pain

As many football players know, the most dreaded and common football injury is a torn ACL. While this injury can happen from a number of circumstances, about 70% of the time, ACL injuries occur from non-contact situations that involve poor knee stability. Twisting, changing one’s position and planting one’s leg are all situations that can result in knee pain and injury. That is why wearing a comfortable, stabilizing support, like the Bauerfeind Sports Knee Support, can help prevent current knee agitations and future season-ending injuries.
