after fucking up my right knee 2 times already in my past, and finally falling hard and hurting my left knee last week, ive decided its time to buy a brace before it gets any worse. do any of you guys have suggestions? ive looked into CTi braces, but thats really the extent of it, any other suggesstions?
i think im actually gonna go see an orthopedist and see if i can get a prescription for a pair of braces that insurance will pay for, because they payed for my knee shit when i tore my acl when i was 11
best bet. if your prepared to shell out for an expensive brace, best to get one properly fitted.
Heloo, my name is Shane Mckonkey. I was born in Vancouver Canada, thats aboot three hours north of, ah, seattle.
Right now were here in Bella Coola Canada, and ah, weve been shut in by the weather for like three weeks eh. We havn't shot fuck all. Ooh, Soory.
We've just been sittng around, eating pasta, and spending loonies and toonies on Kokanee and peelers.
But, as soon as this weather clears, im gunna pull on my toque, eat some canadian bacon, and ah, im keen to giver.
I've got a CTi 2 brace, and it felt like it definetely helped stabilize my knee, but it obviously didn't help much, because I blew out my knee a second time while wearing the brace, on a jump in which I had no reason to fall.
So basically, what I'm saying is, braces aren't your all encompassing solution. Find out what's really fucked up about your knee and see if you can't fix the problem, and maybe use the brace as added protection.
My doctor wrote the prescription like I needed the brace for daily walking, so insurance covered it, I recomend you try the same.
great idea, i need to get a knee brace, as i've had my right knee reconstructed twice and i recently strained my left knee pretty bad. so yeah its time to admit i'm not invicible. damnit. i'll have to see about that.
I have a Don Joy. I love it, good mobility and super light. A lot of college football teams use them. Insurance companies (especially Kaiser) are rather particular when it comes to coverage for braces. I got mine covered through a mistake in paperwork.
^really??? what is it that they are looking for? because i'm covered through kaiser. they also dont pay for physical therapy, which sucks, and is kind of stupid, because if they pay for the surgery then they should pay for at least some physical therapy, its part of the process. anyway, i've had alot of pt and had to pay for it all, that wasn't too cool.
Dude, joke's totally on them, you should make a t-shirt that says 'all you fools suck' and on the back it can say 'I rule coz T-dawg said so' and yeah, you'll be rockin it shibby, new steeze brah, wikkid! ~PhattTim
