Bauerfeind braces and supports are the top choice for the world’s premier basketball trainers.
Confidence to play like a PRO. Official licensed knee brace of the NBA.
Introducing the Bauerfeind Sports Knee Support NBA and Sports Compression Knee Support - NBA, now available in team colors for: Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets, LA Lakers, and New York Knicks. Offering next-level knee support for endurance on and off the basketball court. Developed for the needs and requirements of professional athletes, the Bauerfeind team designed a series of knee supports that are flexible and durable to provide stability on the court when running, jumping, dribbling and shooting.
Basketball requires lots of dynamic movement, leaving the joints susceptible to strain and injury. When a player quickly changes direction while dribbling down the court, or jumps to complete a layup, they rely on their joints to work as shock absorbers. One wrong landing, a rolled ankle, or the accumulation of these movements over time can take a player out of the game.
Bauerfeind’s medical-grade compression promotes healing blood flow and proprioception to reduce pain, swelling, and reinjury. Whether you are recovering from injury or trying to ensure your best performance, Bauerfeind’s braces and supports stabilize the joints without limiting mobility, so you can rely on your body to get you through the game.
Dirk Nowitzki Trusts Bauerfeind
Ranked #7 in all time point scoring, 14-time NBA All-Star Dirk Nowitzki recently retired from a historic 21-season pro basketball career. Since discovering the Bauerfeind GenuTrain knee support in 2008 and wearing it again after knee surgery in 2012, Nowitzki credits Bauerfeind in part for his longevity in basketball.
“The good thing about this brace is it gives you support, but it doesn’t limit my movement,” says Nowitzki. “You feel that something is warm and it’s holding it together somewhat… It’s kind of a no-brainer; now we’ll see if people (consumers) love it as much as I do.”
Some of the most common basketball injuries include: ankle sprain, knee sprain, pulled thigh muscles, ligament tears, and injuries to the wrist and forearm. Bauerfeind offers medical-grade compression braces, supports and sleeves to treat or prevent these injuries. Ask your athletic trainer or healthcare provider for more information on which product may be right for you.
According to the NBATA, the standard first-line treatment for acute injury such as an ankle sprain is RICE Therapy - Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. Bauerfeind braces and supports provide the compression component in this treatment. As always, consult your healthcare provider to create and manage your recovery plan.
