Sports Supports for water sports - prevent instead of cure
Water sports are among the most popular leisure activities of all. Especially in the warm season, canoeists, rowers, sailors, kite surfers and co. enjoy the physical exercise in the cool water. To protect against sports injuries during water sports, there are special sports bandages. These bandages are made of neoprene so that they retain their fit even when wet and do not lose their supporting effect. Water sports bandages support the healing process of painful injuries on the one hand, and prevent them on the other.
Typical injuries during water sports
After a hard day or a busy week, water sports enthusiasts just want to enjoy their free time and clear their heads. Unfortunately, there is always the risk of getting injured. Bruises, sprains and strains are among the most typical injuries in water sports. However, there are more painful ways: stretched ligaments, torn ligaments, fatigue fractures and injuries to the Achilles tendon are annoying and long-lasting sports injuries that can happen to you. Did you know that most aquatic athletes get their sports injuries on land, not in the water? This sounds illogical at first. Statistically, however, it is a fact. Nevertheless, you can still injure yourself while training in the water. Ideally, you should protect yourself from such injuries with a thorough warm-up training and special protectors and bandages for water sports.
