If you have a knee injury, it's wise to use a sports brace to protect your knee from further damage.

Sports braces:

- Reinforce the knee

- Keep it straight

- Keep the joint in alignment

- Add compression to reduce swelling

It's tough to find the right sports brace, though, so it's essential to try on a few before using them to play sports.
