Volleyball players are prone to arm and shoulder injuries due to the repetitive and explosive nature of the sport. A revolutionary sleeve has recently emerged in volleyball as the world's first and only dynamic shoulder and elbow stabilizer that has proven to offload dynamic arm stress.
Volleyball is one of the most popular sports in the world. It has the second highest participation rate worldwide after soccer. With so many participants playing volleyball it is no surprise that a study done by the Center of Injury Research and Policy estimates there are roughly 58,127 U.S. high school volleyball players injured each year.Overhead serving, spiking, blocking, and other extreme positions and rotations for hitting are all very repetitive in volleyball and can lead to shoulder pain or overuse injuries. Overuse can lead to rotator cuff tendonitis, labrum tears, and or shoulder impingements.
The Kinetic Arm sleeve is an imperative tool for volleyball players because it provides the needed external shoulder and elbow support to help reduce arm stress during explosive motions, protecting the arm from overuse injuries, such as muscle strains, tendinitis, and joint instability.
In this blog, we will diving into how this revolutionary sleeve is going to be a complete game-changer for volleyball players.
1. Enhanced Arm Conditioning & Training:
The Kinetic Arm K2 Sleeve might look like a compression sleeve, but it goes beyond compression because it has a patented MuscleWeb™ design with built-in polymers that are engineered to give unrestrictive support to the elbow and shoulder. Wearing this external support system allows athletes to maximize training, because they can get more reps in to build strength, power, agility, and endurance with less arm strain and fatigue. The MuscleWeb™ design is biomechanical design, which mimics natural anatomic attachments and function. Giving players controlled arm resistance and multi-joint stability, without limiting range, delivery, or release. This kinetic sleeve is empowering players to spike harder, serve with more power, and set with precision.
2. Improved Spiking Power
As a volleyball player, a powerful spike can turn the game around. The Kinetic Arm's gives targeted support to help reinforce the joints, muscles, and ligaments to help optimize mechanics and offload stress when peak stress is the highest and when the arm is in the weakest range while spiking. By optimizing mechanics and reducing arm stress a player can train and buld more strength and power with less wear and tear on their arm, allowing them to unleash their true spiking power.
3. Injury Prevention and Arm Health
Volleyball players are susceptible to overuse injuries in the shoulder and elbow. Wearing the Kinetic Arm K2 sleeve is the best way for players to safeguard their arm, because it provides combined elbow and shoulder support while helping to promote cleaner arm actions and alleviate harmful stress that can lead to major setbacks. This innovative kinetic sleeve is the best way to ensure players are doing everything they can to take care of their arm health, and aid in injury prevention.
WHICH IS BEST FOR VOLLEYBALL - THE K1 BRACE OR K2 SLEEVE
With regards to volleyball, it depends on their specific arm care needs.
The K1 kinetic brace has been recommended by medical professionals for players who needed maximum arm support or for recovery or rehabilitation after an injury or surgery. This is because it has a multi-strap system that allows to customize fit and vary the range of support needed to accommodate different arm care needs.
The K2 Sleeve is a great choice for volleyball players, who like a slimmer profile that fits snug and feels similar to a compression sleeve. The K2 sleeve is an easy to wear solution for players who want everyday support to wear in practice or tournaments. The K2 sleeve is also available in adult and youth sizes scaling down to 6 years old.
If you are a volleyball player, you need to try the kinetic arm so you can feel the added support it gives to your arm, without limiting or changing your release or delivery. The sleeve will give you the added support you need to stay playing, competing, or coaching in the game you love.
