In basketball, due to the hard and often non-yielding floors, additional aids are often used to support the joint structures and muscles. Due to very fast movements, jumps and stopping movements, injuries in the ankle area occur very often. Special sports supports and compression clothes are perfect to prevent this and provide stability and support while playing basketball. Through targeted compression, the basketball sports supports have an additional performance-enhancing effect for you during training and in the game.
What Sports Supports are used in basketball?
In basketball, calf sleeves, knee sleeves and back supports are used more and more often to warm the muscles and stabilize the joints. Through targeted compression, the basketball sports supports have an additional performance-enhancing effect for you during training and in the game. Especially for your throwing arm there are arm sleeves (also called throw sleeves, shooter sleeves, power sleeves, arm sleeves or arm warmers) for protection in case of falls, which belong to the optimal equipment for basketball. In case of overstrain and slight pain in the shoulder area, you should use a shoulder brace. This allows you to continue to practice your sport, but without limiting you greatly. The neoprene material warms the shoulder joint and has a positive effect on your shoulder with targeted compression. Thus, you achieve a faster regeneration of the surrounding muscles and prevent prolonged injuries.
