Urgent! Need help!
« on: July 03, 2006, 05:57:18 PM »
Okay for like the 5th time since March my knee has felt okay. However I was just mowing the lawn and had some 4 maybe level 5 pain. I really don't want to have to go through everything again. So I need asdvice on a major anti injury brace. Money is not an Issue! Please respond.

Alright I found out that it is not a re-injury it is a new one. :P When I got hit during our last game my knee got in a weird position. I thought I had just reaggravated it. It turns out that I tore the muscles around my knee cap. My OS got it back in Place and gave me some PT. He gaVE ME SOME pt TO DO AND RECOMENDED SOME BRACES i STILL need some suggestions though. My parents said insurance should cover the brace.

Sorry about the caps

Hey Keith,

I think initially you should consider the braces your OS has recommended. After all, he's the expert.

I agree.  Ask your OS for an RX and maybe get a custom fit brace

Hi Keith,

This is just an idea -

Maybe you could list the braces you've already tried and those you've had recommended to you. It's possible that people here could tell you their experiences with them, good or bad, so you have some idea of what to expect.

But, you should also bear in mind that  even if a brace has been recommended to you that you haven't yet tried out, you shouldn't necessarily disregard using it just on the basis that someone on this board didn't get along with it. Quite often it's a very personal thing and you ahve to find one that suits you, both with regard to comfort, purpose and cost.

Let us know what you and your parents decide.

Take care,

Good Idea:

Iv'e Used

A Breg Immobilizer
Neoprene sleeve
Pattella hole sleeve
Metal stayed pattella brace

suggested

Arhritis brace ( since its the meniscus)

Professional Breg or Donjoy brace

Thanks Remember I'm looking for one to prevent yet another injury
