To wear, or not to wear a knee brace 6 years after surgery
Title says most of it...
I've had two ACL reconstructions, and tore up a bunch of cartlige meniscus etc. about 6 years ago. Had surgery, been riding with a brace ever since. Got a new Dr that gave me the green light to ride with out the brace, but I've never really trusted Doctors due to some bad past experiences. I only use a knee brace for snowboarding.
To wear or not to wear.
I sure as hell can't afford to blow my knee again, but having the freedom to catch grabs again sounds awesome. I've also considered a new knee brace, which was why I was at the doctors office. My old townsend brace doesn't let me catch grabs like I used to. So I was looking for a new brace with a better range of motion for grabs.
