How does injure happen?
The knee joint can be compared to a spring as it cushions and absorbs reactive force during motion shocks, falls and collicions during excessive training or exercise can increase the potential for injuring the knee point.
The knee is a compound joint formed by the femoral and tibia bones and the patella that can completely extend and bend to an angle of 135 degrees. The patella is the largest sesamoid bone in the body, when force is applied the patella incorrectly or without coordination, in contact sports or excessive training, the load on the joint increases, causing injuries like meniseus abrasion or ligament strains. Quite a few athletes have experienced the triple symptones of anterior cruciate rupture, meniscus rupture and medial ligament rupture during their sports careers.
How does LP protect you?
The knee is a vital factor in the career of an athlete because the knee's complex structure allows us to do more nimble and coordinated movements. The LP Sports Medicine Team stresses the maintenance of the shock-absoring capability of joints. During dynamic knee performance, straps and medial lateral hinges or stays are used to strengthen the spring-like characteristics of a knee protector. LP knee protectors with patella opening and silicone pad design help enhance stability and realive pressure on injured knee.
