Overexertion of the elbow muscles can lead to a painful condition that is known as padel elbow. Similar to tennis elbow, this injury is caused by overuse of the muscles and tendons. It is one of the most common injuries in padel. To prevent this injury, it is important not to hold the racket too tightly and to use the correct technique when hitting the ball. With the symptoms of a padel elbow, it is important to ensure you rest it properly for a smooth recovery. Wearing a Push Sports Elbow Brace can reduce the pain.
Another common injury in padel is the ankle sprain. Padel requires fast
and lateral movements. Because of those short and unexpected movements and sudden
stops, sometimes your ankle is twisted into an awkward and uncomfortable position that causes the ligaments on the outside to stretch or even tear. The consequence? A swollen and blue ankle. Ice on the tender area suppresses the swelling. With proper rest, your ankle will often heal within a few weeks. The muscles and tissues around the ankle joint must then be trained with exercises and (possibly) physiotherapy. To prevent a recurrence of this annoying injury, it is important to wear good shoes and protect your ankle. A Push Sports Ankle Brace is a good solution for extra protection.
Rapid movements and sudden changes in direction can cause the knee joint to become damaged. When the knee is twisted, the (cruciate) ligaments and meniscus tissue are stretched, resulting in possible tears or inflammation. The most common knee injuries are jumper's knee (an inflammation of the tendon) and knee ligament injuries. To prevent injuries, it is important to use the correct technique when hitting the ball, wear good shoes, warm up properly before playing and take adequate rest between matches. During and after recovery from a knee injury, it can be useful to protect the knee (during sport sessions) with a Push Sports Knee Brace.
