Drummond Golf Injury Solution Centre
Our LP Support Range provides dynamic protection, maximum comfort and excellent recovery when you're not only playing golf but all forms of exercise.
Wearing a brace while playing golf can help prevent injury, provide additional support and alleviate pain from a previous injury. Common golf injuries include elbow tendonitis , knee pain, wrist pain, back pain and more. The best type of brace for golfing is one that is lightweight and doesn’t impede your swinging motion.
Support Level: While most braces look similar in appearance, their design and level of support differs significantly.
Injury-Specific: In addition to matching your injury to the level of support needed, you'll also want to consider choosing a product designed for your specific injury, whether it’s pain due to arthritis or a sport-related injury.
Brace Styles: There are several distinct brace styles, each one with its own set of pros and cons. Some of the most common include wraparounds, pull-ups, knee straps, hinged braces, neoprene braces, and magnetic styles.
Optimal Size: While some braces go on the one-size-fits-all concept, we recommend products with a selection of sizes ranging from small to extra-large, our fitting experts can help you determine the proper size for you.
