Title: Femoral nerve damage knee brace required
Post by: gcdrake on September 05, 2015, 07:04:02 AM
Hi I've damaged (perminant) my femoral nerve in my lower back that has significantly weakened my leg. I can walk and climb stairs without a need for a brace, but want to get back to playing tennis.  Y problem is I can't hold my weight on my knee when flexed.  So I'm looking for a brace that will support the knee providing some flex but not allow it to collapse.  Has anyone got a similar issue and found a solution?

Hi, I have femoral nerve damage and have just bought a Donjoy TROM brace which you can lock to prevent knee buckling. So far it has been pretty good

Hi,
I had nerve damage in 4 nerves (medial retinacular, lateral retinacular, peroneal nerve, and femoral nerve). I ended up having surgery to get all 4 nerves repaired! Before I had an unstable knee and I already have gotten some of my function back. I'm not sure knee brace is the answer as even when I had my knee brace I still developed multiple injuries.
