Re: ACL Reconstruction Recovery

does it matter what the brand of the brace is? Would a brace from the local drug store be fine?

Re: ACL Reconstruction Recovery

I did some jumping and shuffling today at PT. It's weird when I start tentative and then realize I can do it.

Re: ACL Reconstruction Recovery

Hitesh - you got to really get on your exercises. Laying down and doing nothing will not help in the long run. Talk to your PT about home exercises and get to it! The last thing you want is to look...

Re: ACL Reconstruction Recovery

Zane - thanks for reading! It has been a great outlet for me.

Re: ACL Reconstruction Recovery

One note on ice...don't forget about it. After swelling goes down, your knee will still be sore sometimes. Be sure you ice because it really does miracles in making you feel better. I have had a...

Re: ACL Reconstruction Recovery

Re: ACL Reconstruction Recovery

yeah, did the hangs, stretching and massaging. It's been 3.5 months.

It is called a dynasplint, not dynosplint like I said in my post before.

Re: ACL Reconstruction Recovery

does the leg hurt at all? Not being able to put weight on that leg is rough, I did it for a month. My foot still cracks sometimes when I put my foot down, it's a good crack though.
