Both my Doctor and Physical Therapist say "It has been shown" that knee braces do not protect your knee. That if anything, they make matters worse by giving a false sense of security. I told 'em "No way" and that everybody "swears by them" including myself ... and got a prescription for my second pair of CTI Braces. 'course I had busted the first CTI brace (and my knee) in my last crash. Well, I'm sure most of you agree that knee braces are crucial. I am interested to hear arguments to the contrary though. Anybody got a good argument against knee braces?
