Knee brace
« on: December 16, 2020, 07:08:55 PM »
Having decided to invest in a knee brace I discover that there are many different types and I don't know which type is best for me (oblique tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus and there is a partial tear of the posterior root attachment and there is a macerated degenerative tear of the body and posterior horn of the lateral meniscus).

I sent a detailed description of my circumstances to a couple of suppliers/manufacturers asking advice and I got a reply back from one suggesting I ask my doctor (oh if life were that simple)!

Anyone any suggestions on how I identify the device that will get me back on the golf course?
