I had a physical today (yay) and my physician recommended that i buy knee braces because my knees take alot of abuse and have been giving me trouble. he said they would make my life easier. I ski in the winter and race dirtbikes in the summer. both sports abuse my knees heavily. as he was writing out a prescription for some knee braces (if you get a prescription insurance will pay for all or most of it) he asked if i would like a soft brace or a hard brace. I didnt know what to tell him.
need knee braces dont know if i should get a hard or a soft brace. so people who wear knee braces tell me which one you prefer and why. thanks NS.
