Knee Sleeve / Support recommendations
Background: I'm 30 yrs old, heavy build, doubles tennis 3x a week, basketball once a week. Starting to get constant knee pain more on the medial sides of the left and right knees. There's also pain on the lateral side but not so much.

I get more pain on the left knee, probably because my left leg is slightly longer than the right.

The pain is a lingering type, kinda acts up when bending the knees.

Any recommendations on what to get? The pain used to act up only after basketball but now feeling it after tennis. Only injury was a partial MCL tear on my right knee some 5 years ago.

I have a week right knee too, and the only knee sleeve I've ever tried is the Shock Doctor closed patella, so unfortunately I don't have any expertise or anything to compare them to. What I can tell you is that the Shock Doctors work well for me, only problem is they slip a bit when you're sweaty. Not sure about someone with such a history of knee problems though.

ive two of the genetrain 92 dollars one.. but if your serious with getting optimal protection i would suggest these. Do the research with these sites to better make the right decision. personally I would spend extra money to protect the knee.

PS. Measure your knee correctly, as the sizes differ greatly
