mine is now 3 months old and being fanatical about rehab i am at about 90% the big thing was continuing to press on with flexion work it will hurt but breaking the adhesions and scar tissue will be worth it. Riding horses every day and even barn work. Just hauled two horses to Pennsylvania and as long as we switched drivers every 3 hours and I got out to move and stretch it was good, I did wear the compression sock as sitting builds up fluid and can be uncomfortable. Good luck with your recovery!Bit the bullet on Monday, now to see if I can do things right with the artificial one
I feel like any neoprene brace that gets good coverage seems to help a lot in the short term whether I’m dealing with a tendon or ligament strain, or arthritic type pain in the joint. I assume it’s a heat thing. It could be a mental thing.Who uses knee braces? There are some heavy duty ones out there I'm considering but getting one that really works is what I'd like to hear about.
What type of knee brace do you wear?I'm 57 and have lived with pain in my left knee since I was 13 when I nearly lost my leg in a motorcycle accident hitting a car.
By age 19 I developed arthritis and would flee to Hawaii every winter for relief. I've lived in the desert now for the past 25+ years and that helps.
Basically I just push through the pain. I don't like taking pills of any kind. I wear a knee brace and keep plenty hydrated.
