Title: Knee Brace???
Post by: morgan515046 on September 13, 2005, 04:07:10 AM
Hey everyone, I have been wearing a knee brace when I have been playing volleyball, well its pretty old and is starting to kinda fall apart. Do I get a new one?? I have one from Walmart but it doesn't fit me too well and is really uncomfortable. If I should get a new one what kind?? I assume that my OS will allow me to play basketball too and I kinda want it to last me for that. He said that he probably wanted me wearing one for about a yr. I don't go back to see him until Oct. 4th. Thanks for any replies.

Some studies suggest the actual benefit to knee braces? I find it being more psychological for myself.........

Check with your doc!

Like the others have suggested, I'd make the phone call.  You may also be able to find the exact same brace you've got now (which I'm assuming was provided by your OS) at kneeshop.com.  I had lost weight and needed a smaller size, and found the same exact Donjoy at half the price on this website.
