Lifting force involving a decent amount of mass, i.e. you lifting progressively heavier, literally grinds the kneecap onto itself. This is often the cause of progressive tendonitis. An interesting statistic published by the Huffington Post indicates that nearly one in twenty Americans older than fifty have artificial knees. That’s more than four million people. So if that’s what happens to the average population, imagine the scenario for athletes and those who weightlift on a regular basis.
Knee sleeves do not need to be worn for all weightlifting exercises. If the knee is not involved as a primary lifting source, they are not necessary. They do however provide the support necessary for squating, the snatch, or the clean and jerk. Any time the knee is left weak or vulnerable, it is at great risk for damage, and usually long-term damage, unfortunately.
