I hurt my knee back in february. I have been using this knee brace http://www.anthem-sports.com/Mueller-Wrap-Around-Knee-Brace-LARGE-17-to-19-_p_2342.html?gdftrk=gdfV2853_a_7c49_a_7c2003_a_7cA73_d_483&gclid=CJK5gt_H5bkCFQ1xQgodx2YAOQ (wow that is long! not exact but close) I feel it has been doing the job, I can feel that it helps support a lot, but maybe not enough. I don't have $600+ to just buy a nice one, I would like to keep it down into the $150 range max. I know, these are my knees, and I should protect them better, but I am going to have to make do with what I can find. I found this one used, and it looks a lot like what I want (might be a womens, and might be too small.) http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/spo/4026274871.html Also looking for something maybe around like this would be enough? http://www.breg.com/products/knee-bracing/post-op/recover-knee-brace I just would like to know if there is anybody that is in my situation, and had to go with a cheaper route, and share what they got. thank you!
