Knee brace for surfing

Common Questions and Answers about Knee brace for surfing


Avatar m tn I bought a knee brace for work, and sports. It is like elastaprene, or something. It works well keeping my knee stable (ACL injury). But it makes my skin have a rash. Is there another style material brace I could buy that would not make my skin have a rash?

564321 tn?1216333985 The result is a footdrop brace that is just as effective worn barefoot as a conventional hard brace and shoe. This elastic brace conforms beautifully to the ankle and calf. Worn under stockings, it's practically invisible. Ideal for hyper-mobile and post-polio afflictions. Includes a semi-rigid plantar footplate, which helps maintain the arch and provides a stable support surface. I hope this works out.
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 Is it o.k. to wear a knee brace that also covers the vaiacose vein in my shin. without the brace I have pain in my knee cap & not sure if any pain is from the varicose vein. it does feel better with the brace on But will it do harm to the varicose vein?
645800 tn?1466860955 I would love to figure out how they've set up both for you. I have to wear a knee brace on my weak leg 24/7 -- the foot drop assist afos that were approved by my insurance wouldn't work with the knee brace. The one that does work with knee brace? Insurance has denied it twice now. They won't cover it. I'm incredibly frustrated and not sure what to do next. What sort of afos are you using? I am so glad that the set up is working for you though!!! Must feel pretty good!
Avatar f tn My son destroyed an ACL playing football -- he lives a normal life without one, but uses an orthopaedic knee brace when he runs or plays sports.
645800 tn?1466860955 Yesterday I finally got my new foot brace for my right foot ( called a toe off) . Right from the start it felt so weird walking with it on. Probably mostly because my foot has been dropping and turning in for such a long time that I had gotten somewhat use to it. It is made of carbon fiber material and goes all the way up my shin to just below my knee.
Avatar f tn thanks for your reply, I was also wondering do you think they would follow the same steps as last time regarding the surgery?? like six weeks on crutches again but no knee brace again or would they maybe change it?
Avatar f tn so, i've been a little under 2 months now and it was my good leg. my right leg's knee is giving me fits even before the foot drop. so far, i've had the eeg test which determined there's a problem in my leg. just don't know why and hoping the mri will show something. in another couple weeks, i'll get my brace. ortho doesn't seem to have a lot of hope because they ordered the high-dollar pivoting brace.
Avatar m tn The knee started feeling around 80% better about 3 days ago. I wore knee brace every day even to sleep, 2 days ago I changed to a more comfortable brace with those metal hinges on sides, also slept with it. My current issue/question, is 2 days ago I woke up with a swollen ankle and pain when putting leg down to walk. I don't remember any sprain in ankle at all, I had just walked a theme park the night before with no ankle issue or even the knee felt great.
Avatar n tn Hello. I am not a doctor, but an athletic trainer. As an athletic trainer, I specialize in orthopedic injuries. I help prevent, diagnosis and rehabilitate injuries. I like to think there is always hope. Have you gone to another surgeon for another opinion? Do you know what is limiting your ability to straighten your leg? Is it scar tissue? If so, they can remove that. You will have to go to physical therapy again, but it should help you regain your motion.
Avatar f tn I have no reflex in my right knee and I was thinking about getting a brace for it. Anyone have similar problems and used a brace?
957414 tn?1246670050 I went down right away and felt pain in my left knee. Both sides of my knee were a little bit swollen, and I could not bend my knee all the way back. In addition, if I put pressure on the sides of my knee, it hurts and this was after swelling went down. I was able to bear my full weight on my injuried leg without pain at all. I have since then put on a brace to limit my knee movement with icing and elevation.
Avatar f tn See your chiropractor, seriously, I have a knee that does that, he works on it and it is fine. In the mean time, try wearing a knee brace to give it support.
Avatar f tn three times ten equals zero brace) You are in it three times a day, for 10 minutes at a time to get you to 0 degrees of flexion (or full extension).
16237877 tn?1446544835 About 2 years ago, I started running for the reason to get fit. But suddenly I happened to get knee pain whenever I ran or just walked. I thought that it was a sign of me doing something wrong when I run. I tried changing my shoes, but that didn't work. Finally, I had to go for a knee pain treatment at Physio Now Mississauga. The therapist there evaluated my knee. I was asked to wear a custom knee brace for a while. That helped a lot with pain.
Avatar n tn Got all the pills and drained right knee. If its not better he has to cut.
Avatar m tn I am supposed to wear my brace all of the time. The main reason for this is that you never know when a bad foot drop will hit. Before I got the brace I was tripping over nothing several times a day even though the foot drop wasn't obvious. Since I got the brace I never trip over nothing like before. Of course I don't really wear the brace all of the time. Each evening after I have my dinner I take off the brace because I don't do much walking after that.
