Recovering from an injury can be a long path, and it's important to choose knee braces that help keep your joint stable and properly positioned as you work back into shape. Choose a neoprene knee sleeve designed to retain the heat generated as you move to keep your knee loose and warm during physical activity, helping to prevent injuries before they happen. A knee sleeve also acts as a compression device to minimize pain and inflammation caused by swelling. If you're dealing with ligament issues, hinged knee braces halt excessive left and right motions to guard against sprains and strains. Athletes working with patellar tendonitis, or jumper's knee, can benefit from wearing a strap just below the knee to apply pressure to the tendon and relive pain with minimal mobility limitations.

Shin splints are a common injury among athletes, but wearing protective shin braces helps prevent stress to the affected tendons, reducing pain and speeding recovery time. Runners who suffer from a pulled hamstring or quadriceps can add thigh braces to their workout gear to provide added support. A snug-fitting brace helps keep your muscles relaxed and promotes increased blood flow during activity. For a simple sprain, properly applied athletic tape helps minimize pain without impeding a free range of motion.
