Avatar m tn There are so many models available. The clinic I went to gave me a hinged knee brace by futuro. I would like something to protect my knee from further injury and keep pain and swelling down. I had one brace before that got real tight when I sat down, I really did not like that. Thanks very much an have a great day!
Avatar n tn Thank you Dr. Vinod for your response. You mentioned a hinged brace. I am currently wearing an immobilizer that extends from just above my ankle to my middle thigh area. Would it be of more benefit to have something that would allow me to bend the knee? What I have found is that my knee isn't very stable without the immobilizer but should I be bending it? Thanks!
Avatar m tn And its not a rough surgery either. You may consider wearing a hinged knee brace, that may help you. Hope everything works out!!!
Avatar m tn As far as the meniscus is concerned, you should probably get your knee scoped for that. For the MCL, a hinged knee brace usually does the trick in regards to healing, along with physical therapy. Make sure your quads are strong too!
486038 tn?1300063367 Exactly how much do these things help you? I'm still having trouble walking, they aren't the cure all I was hoping for, now isn't that a bummer. My little green "UFO's" that were supposed to fly me around at a fast pace with a new walk.. well, they didn't pan out. What I mean is that I still have a strange walk that is a combination of the shuffle-dance and the tin-man walk from the Wizard of Oz...
Avatar n tn It is the surface which articulates with the femoral condyles to form the knee joint. It can be divided into medial and lateral components. A tibial plateau fracture is any fracture involving the proximal articular surface of the tibia. Associated soft-tissue injuries to the knee are likely. The incidences are as follows 91% for lateral meniscus abnormality, 44% for medial meniscus tears, and 68% for tears of 1 or more of the postero-lateral corner structures of the knee.
Avatar f tn m a 46yo fem skier symptoms of joint line pain and stiffness in the right knee. No locking or serious instability although the knee has given a couple of times. 18years prior I had a broken tibial plateau that required bone graft (freeze dried cadaver bone) with 2 screws and meniscus repair on the lateral side. Screws were taken out and the plateau had to be reshaped on both the lateral and medial sides to due excess bone growth from the repair. I've been skiing ever since.
645800 tn?1466860955 And then to get up I have to use my left arm pressing on my left lag to get up enough to start using my right leg to support myself. With two non-hinged braces I don't think I would be able to do that so will probably have to go for them to be both hinged. I have had a sleep study in the past done which indicated that I do not snore and I only stopped breathing for very short period a couple of times during the night.
Avatar f tn I am a 27 year old female who has been suffering with undiagnosed right knee pain since 2005. I was working as a housekeeper (for a not great company) while going through nursing school. I started having moderate pain and swelling after school/work in my right knee. One day I was bent down making a bed (I'm 5'9") and felt my knee give out upon standing. I had 6-7 pain scale and instant swelling. The next morning I woke up with no feeling from my toes to groin in the right leg.
Avatar f tn I will be doing a lot of traveling this summer, lots of airports; does an orthopaedic boot support both knee and ankle? I use Voltaren gel and take Tramadol twice a day.
Avatar f tn Wow, I supposed I thought I would have a little more support and a little less of what I'm hearing. I'm not stupid, Of course I met with my family dentist first, which (other than the unexpicable shift in my jaw line) was relucant too put any teeth, without having complete, mostly becaosue it wouldn't correct my bite. Then on to the oral surgeon. He offered a a solution (somewhat ) that would leave my family comletely. Has anyone been through this?
Avatar f tn I would recommend orthotics for stability and a brace to help support the alternate foot while the tendons heel.
Avatar f tn I've been on 100 patches for over 4 years now for my knee after finding out I had been wrongly diagnosed and 4 knee ops later which I have not needed I had a tubular re alignment,I have now been told to come off this medication just am really scared as I don't have much faith as you can imagine.I spoke to my GP and to be honest I was only spoke to for 5 minutes about it and no real information .

Avatar n tn Hi all, I am not sure why I am writing down all this. I guess I am looking for some support. It's been almost 5 months now since my high risk exposure. The anxiety gets worse and worse, so I finally decided to go back to my home country to do the final test. I've been tested negative after one week and 39 days. It didn't really give me much relieve. rather the opposite: I got so anxious that I couldn't go to a further test.
Avatar f tn Most everything I read has people in PT within a few weeks after surgery. I am now in hinged braces (open to 90 degrees) but only have 30-40 degrees of ROM right now. Walking without assistance and bearing full weight. Should I be in PT?
Avatar f tn My office rotates also, so I will get a male doc at least once our twice for my office visits. I simply adore my doctor! She is one of the kindest, most caring and sympathetic people you could ever meet. she held my hand when she told me my baby had stopped growing at 10 weeks, she performed my D&C on a saturday morning and hinged me and held me while I cried during my post surgery follow up appointment. I can't imagine anyone else delivering my baby.
645800 tn?1466860955 This brace will not only support my foot and keep it from twisting, but will also provide some support to my knee to help keep me from falling when my knee gives out. The custom brace is more of a hinged thing which would allow me to fall easier. One thing that really surprised me was when I went up to Prosthetics was that the Neuro put on the referral a DX of MS. Every time I had gotten a referral for anything from the Neurology department in the past the DX was always Demyelinating Disease.
Avatar m tn Because of the atrophy in my leg, I will have to wear a brace for the rest of my life and this brace seems to be the one that gives me the most support. I hope your knee is better and you do not have to wear a brace indefinitely but if you do, I recommend the Donjoy Defiance III. It is a custom fitted brace. Your doctor should be able to help. Best wishes to you and stay positive. You'll be fine...
Avatar f tn Im in the uk but I use one called nexcare its brilliant belly and back support its my daily essential! Im not sure if you can get it outside of uk or not. I feel incredibly heavy at the front without it. Good luck!
Avatar f tn I dont' know if they still sell them but I once had a crib that wasn't really a drop side but the top foot or so of the side was hinged and flipped out and down-does that make sense? Perhaps you can search online for something like that??
