A groin injury threatens to throw a spanner in the works. Call it all off then?
One last visit to the physiotherapist is the final hope. The physiotherapist advises wearing compression shorts: a revolutionary development in the sports world.

“Wear them tomorrow in the airplane and also during the marathon. They will ease your complaints considerably” according to the  physiotherapist. So said, so done. The marathon was completed, without groin injury.

We’ve heard this story recently. We’re happy that our compression shorts helped this marathon runner to complete the New York marathon.

Physiotherapist N.E.C. Nijmegen

I have had a long-time search for shorts/tights that support both the muscular system of the pelvis and the lower back. These shorts/tights have been developed in cooperation with Knapman. Finally!

I have been waiting almost 3 years for a product like the Zoned Compression Shorts by Knapman. As physiotherapist by N.E.C., I am busy on a daily basis with injury prevention. In particular for groin and hamstring injuries, I have been searching for years for innovative products. I am proud that I have been able to contribute to the development of this new product. In my opinion, this is a fantastic development for sporters. My players were immediately enthousiastic and they now only want the Knapman shorts/tights. Some of the players even wear the Knapman shirts as well.
