We've heard this countless times. But the question to ask yourself is, do I really need one, or moreover, should I even get one at all?
This interesting video will hopefully make you think that through carefully.

SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

With competitive club teams in almost every sport, year-round play is status-quo for young athletes. But with the promise of championships and scholarships comes the greater chance of injury -- and it's a price more and more young athletes are paying.
Sixteen-year-old Rachel Clements is among that group.
"I ran at least once a day, I would work out at Seung Ni usually twice a day, and every night I would have basketball or rugby practice," said Rachel.
It's that type of high intensity sports training that landed her in physical therapy rehabbing a torn ACL. That's the Anterior Cruciate Ligament. Its job is to keep the thigh and shin bones in line and when it's torn it leads to major instability.

Danica Patrick: 'I actually feel better today'
By GODWIN KELLY, MOTORSPORTS EDITOR
Danica Patrick, who crashed hard in Thursday's first qualifying race, was all smiles during a morning press conference with the worldwide media covering Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway.Patrick confirmed she intentionally took her hands off the steering wheel seconds before contacting the inside retaining wall in her No. 10 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet.
"I was trained when there is no saving it and no hope you let go," Patrick said. "I didn't cover my eyes (with my hands) but I did close them because I didn't want my eyes to pop out of my head."
"(Releasing the wheel) is an IndyCar Series thing. I just don't see the point of keeping my hands on anything that will tangle up in a crash."
Patrick said she hit a foot on the clutch pedal and hit her arm on the seat because of the angle of the crash."I actually feel better today," the 29-year-old driver said. "Last night it was starting to get sore. My husband is a physical therapist and he's got a lot of good tricks."
Patrick said her crash on the last lap of the first Gatorade Duel At Daytona was a "disappointment" but she has high hopes for the weekend.
"The worst time for me to crash is in the first couple of laps or last couple of laps," she said. "The good side to that is that I got experience. I was one mile short of finishing.
"The team has been very supportive. They said, 'Don't worry about the car. As long as you are good, as long as you like the car, then we got a great backup for you.'"
