Volleyball requires lots of dynamic movement, leaving the joints susceptible to strain and injury. Knee, ankle and elbow injuries are especially common. When lunging, blocking, jumping, serving or spiking, volleyball players need to change direction quickly in order to execute powerful, precise moves. One wrong landing, a rolled ankle, or the accumulation of these movements over time can take a player out of the game. Bauerfeind’s medical-grade compression promotes healing blood flow and proprioception to reduce pain, swelling, and reinjury. Whether you are recovering from injury or trying to ensure your best performance, Bauerfeind’s braces and supports stabilize the joints without limiting mobility, so you can rely on your body to get you through the game.

Volleyball Players Trust Bauerfeind

“I first came across Bauerfeind [after the semi-finals] in London where I had severe pain in my knee. There was a consultant in the Olympic Village who said, ‘we have a new product here and we want you to try it out.’ As I got to know the product and the brand better, I realized that my life and sport would improve tremendously.” - Adenizia da Silva, 2012 Volleyball Olympic Gold Medalist

”I have never seen a product so prevalent at an indoor volleyball tournament than the Bauerfeind knee brace and once I tried it I knew why. The ‘soft’ construction of the Sports Knee Support - rather than the bionic metal braces - lets me feel unconstrained and able to react at full speed, while the tight compression and gel patella ring makes my knee feel very stable.” - Jessie Egan, semi-pro volleyball player

How do you treat a sprained ankle?
