I got my CTI custom brace about 9 months ago, when I was about 6 months out of recovery from ACL reconstruction. I was measured for the brace (not molded). I was having issues with the brace sliding down and bruising right above my thigh every time I use it (wakeboarding/snowboarding). So I got the Anti-migration strap, but I'm still having the issue. I tighten the 2 lower straps on the brace so much that I get cramps in my calf, and that usually helps it from sliding. But then I have a new issue just as painful, but my knee brace is sitting in the correct area.

I've had a gap between the brace and my thigh when my knee is bent ever since I received it... shouldn't this be tight so it doesn't slide down when I bend my knee on landings? I also feel like this gap keeps me unprotected from hyperextension, which is initially how I tore my ACL. I talked to the guy who sized me today about it, and he said that's how it's supposed to fit and the best thing I can do is use the anti-migration strap.

I know some of you on here swear by the CTI brace. Do you guys get frustrated by your knee brace, or does mine fit wrong? What are your tricks for keeping it in place? Honestly, I would like to go to another place to get a 2nd opinion and possibly resized, unless everyone else has these same issues. Thanks for your answers and input!
