 Braces anyone?
Maria K    5:08pm Feb 19 2017

Hi all,

I actually have 2 questions so I'll make 2 posts. This one is about knee braces. About 6 years ago I blew out my left knee skiing. Acl, Mcl, etc. since then when I ski or do anything very active I have to wear a fiberglass brace, the same kind the football players wear after acl injuries. Custom made and perfectly comfortable but still something I have to be aware of. So, I was wondering with what I now did to my left knee, also skiing (yes, I am nuts) if I will need. Brace on this knee too. It was a comminuted tibial plateau fx and acl avulsion. Anyone have experience with that?
