Best Knee Braces For Soccer



Hard kicks and sudden impacts from falling on soccer fields, put high pressure on the knees and increase the risk of injury.

Knees are vulnerable joints prone to acute and chronic injuries such as ACL, MCL and meniscal tears

Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or knee support can minimise your chances of a soccer injury by providing enhanced stability, proprioception and moisture-wicking medical-grade compression.

Bauerfeind knee braces help to promote blood flow with the use of our 3D weaved medical grade compression, something not found when using simple neoprene sleeves and braces.

This added support will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to run down the field, control the ball, dribble and kick goals. 




Take a look at professional football player Lawrence Thomas from Melbourne FC getting 3D measured in store for compressions and sports supports. 

Bauerfeind are the only knee brace supplier in Australia to provide 3D scanning prior to purchasing a knee brace. If you're not able to visit a showroom you can also measure yourself using a standard tape measure.

Lawrence wears his compression supports during his soccer training to prevent knee injuries and to promote faster recovery.

If you are feeling niggles or have weak knees prone to injury, take a look at the best knee braces which help in preventing soccer injuries.

    Physiotherapists and orthopaedics utilize Bauerfeind products to prevent and treat knee problems and support the healing process after injuries.

    Take a look at our Bauerfeind physical therapist explaining the different knee braces for soccer depending on whether you have a minor sprain or strain injury or a major MCL tear, ACL injury or meniscus damage. 




    During soccer, repeated sprinting and sudden direction changes can be very hard on your knees and cause muscle and ligament tears. Overuse can lead to more serious conditions that require medical attention.



    We recommend visiting a physiotherapist for treatment and advice on treating soccer injuries. They may recommend the following treatments for further athletics injuries.
    • Strains or Sprains. Many sprains and strains can be treated with the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. A good physiotherapist can assist with the recovery however prevention is always better than cure.
    • Medial Collateral Ligament injury.  This occurs when the (valgus) force is too great for the ligament to resist and the ligament is overstretched. Treatment of an MCL injury varies depending on its severity. Always consult a physiotherapist to receive a full diagnosis and treatment plan.
    • Runner’s Knee. This is the common name for patellofemoral pain syndrome. This is often due to abnormal mechanics caused by problems close to the knee, forcing the patella to bump against the femoral groove. We recommend speaking with a running specific physiotherapist, they will usually review your running form as well as tissue and musculature.

    Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent tendonitis pain.
