At the beginning of this month, I injured my knee boarding. They have told me it's MCL for sure. It's been torn, but we are certain as to how bad so far...I have the MRI on monday though so we will know for sure by then. The physiotherapist said that My ACL was stretched as well, but doesn't think it's torn luckily but advises me to get a good brace for doing things like running for now and boarding, any sports basically. So I know that unfortunately there are a lot of you out there that have done basically the same thing. So I was wondering if you guys have any suggestions about the braces I should look into. Need to get somethign heavy duty i guess b/c i'm a bigger guy. Any pics/names/links would be very helpful. Thanks a lot!

most people use Donjoy and my first brace was one of theirs but i didnt like it that much. right now i'm using one from Innovation Sports and i really like it. I'm also a hockey goalie and it fits comfortably under my pads, which the donjoy did not.
hope this helps

this is the one i'm using right now

CTi2 knee brace! I dont need one cus i excercise and work out my knees when im not in the water, but my friends say there awesome. Expensive, but if you really need it, med insurance will pay for it.

Yep, if you dr. says you need one, have him prescribe you one so that insurance can cover it. Most off the shelf braces aren't worth a *&%^ and custom braces cost well over 1k.

I have the Donjoy Defiance, but would go with a CTi2 if given a choice.

CTI2 by innovation sports...

i do specific workouts as well for my knee's and no knee brace will stop an injury form happening. But, i can tell you this! i will not ride moto or wakeboard without my CTI2 braces on period.

So is the CTI2 the one with the above link. It says its by IS but I cant find the model CTI2 anywhere on that page.

I will be having surgery in Sep (torn ACL, meniscus, and partialy torn MCL) and have heard a lot of good things about CTI2. This seems like the one to go with.

Other than easing your mind is it helpful to wear a brace on your good knee to prevent major injury.
