Knee support recommendations
« on: March 14, 2021, 06:35:49 PM »
I dislocated my knee back in January, first time in 24 years after having corrective surgery to stop it dislocating..
I'm soon going to be coming out of the ranger brace and my physio says I can buy a support to wear if I dont want to go straight to wearing nothing.
Can anyone reccomend one I can buy please that supports and helps prevent dislocation. Many thanks

Sorry, I should have said, I'm UK based. I'm seeing physio next week but just wanted to see what people recommended.

Id ask the physio for a recommendation, theyre best placed to advise as they will have been trained on the different type of braces as well as knowing your history.

If not you should add what country you are in so someone can at least recommend a retailer or brand as they can differ by geography.

Donjoy make excellent braces (I have one of their unloaders and am using an air cast ankle brace following ligament surgery).
If in UK, for example, This is marketed for patella instability, get your physios opinion on this or alternatives

Or the next model up

(They are a global company)
