Title: What to wear over under braces as weather gets cold?
Post by: Vinny61 on October 12, 2017, 06:55:34 PM
Hi,

I tore both quad tendons on 9/1 and have braces on bothe legs. Up to this point the weather has been warm so I wear shorts with the ace sleeves provided by my surgeon over my knees.

I'm trying to figure out what I should wear as the weather gets cold.

I was thinking sweat pants that unsnap on the sides so I can get to  the braces lockinging mechanism, but I 'm not sure I'll be able to easily get the braces off when I go to PT.

or

Shorts with tight nylon running pants with the braces over the running pants.

Any input would be appreciated..

thanks
