Is there any sports equipment that can prevent nose trauma?

Many sports already have protective equipment in place to prevent trauma to sensitive areas. If trauma occurs despite the standard equipment, your doctor may have a special mask made to fit your face to prevent further injury to the nose. Common sports for protective face/nose equipment are soccer, basketball, softball, and baseball.
