Best braces for motocross
« on: September 14, 2011, 07:48:19 PM »
Unfortunately my son wants to do motocross  :(.

Now that he is 9 months post his aclr op we are looking at braces to keep his knees secure.  Anyone out there a motocross fiend with experience of a knee brace they can recommend?  Many thanks

There is a web site called Thumper Talk which is a gung.ho motocross website. DrMark is the Health moderator there and they did a survey on the most suitable braces for motocross. If you link to this and ask they will be able to give some "expert" advice. I'm on my iPad right now otherwise I could copy and paste a link for you. But it is a motocross forum so it should pop up in a Google search.
