HOW TO AVOID OVERUSE
In addition to gradually increasing the intensity of their training and taking proper rest days, runners can also avoid overusing their muscles and potential long term injuries by wearing injury-preventative gear.
For example, the Bauerfeind Sports Knee Support has an anatomically contoured pad that surrounds the knee cap to redistribute pressure and protect the knee against overloading. This will greatly reduce and alleviate current effects of overuse from high impact activity and prevent future injuries like runner’s and jumper’s knee. Plus, with a breathable knit fabric, the Sports Knee Support never hinders a runner’s range of motion or comfort.
By combining a gradual increase of intensity, taking rest days, and wearing the Bauerfeind Sports Knee Support, runners can hit the track, trail, or treadmill safely each time.
