Unloader Brace
« on: November 12, 2005, 01:50:50 PM »
I have medial knee pain and my doctor recommends an unloader brace.  I don't have arthritis (since I've had a scope and he looked).  The doc doesn't know the reason for my continued pain.  Therefore I want to try the brace.

My question is, does a brace relieve the pain?  My pain is when I am weight-bearing such as with each step of walking. 
Scope 10/04 and debridement of chondral defect,  OATs on 1/05
