ACL Brace
« on: September 23, 2014, 10:09:48 PM »
Hi All, I'm going to keep this post short & snappy!

I had my left knee reconstructed using my patellar tendon back in October 2010 after an awful football tackle. Had a successful rehab - went back to football the following season.

Back in July this year, I fell awarkdly on my knee, had an MRI scan which showed I partially tore my ACL. In August I had an arthroscopic surgery, the surgeon said I don't need the graft reconstructed! He also mentioned about 20% of the graft was torn.

As of now, I am doing my physio & everything is going well! I have no idea when I will be returning back to football, but my physio said I will not need a lot of sessions!

My question is, what brace would you recommend? And are they worth it?
