yep. it's all about how quickly the board reacts to your movements. if your feet move around, there will always be a split second delay, which is huge when you're trying to do mini adjustments. it's kind of like driving a car on the highway with a loose-y steering wheel. that being said I'm not sure it would've helped with your injury. these things happen. just make sure your stance (width, angles) is comfortable, to avoid putting extra stress on your knees.
