Knee brace recomendations

Hello~

I'm thinking about buying a knee brace for this season. Last season I had a minor injury that's been nagging me all year. I guess now that I'm getting a bit older my parts aren't rejuvinating the way they used to. I want a knee brace to prevent any further injury and one that is comfortable to ride with all day

any thoughts?

I did my knee cartilage in last season, but because it doesn't respond well to surgery anyway the doctor said its best for me to put up with the aches and pains I do get until it's really needed. All I've worn is one of those neoprene knee supports, it's worked wonders with me, just giving the knee the extra support it needs as my shock absorbers are now shot! Only issue is it gets super sweaty.

McDavid makes great braces.

Keep in mind that braces may help give you extra protection and support, but they make your joints weaker when using them.

I would go with a low level support brace. Use stronger ones when you are recovering.

Word, McDavid makes some good shiet.

I am getting these for the season:


In the meantime I wear these for running, working out, etc. Just plain sleeves:

Thanks for the advice... the McDavid looks pretty good. I will defintely avoid a high support.. I don't want my knee to get weaker!

Do the weaker ones work as a preventative measure as well?

I couldn't tell you. I'm not a doctor. I just know what I said earlier from my own injuries from playing school sports.
