I recently had a sports injury in which I tore my anterior cruciate ligament. I have never felt that much pain in my life. Every movement which required use of my knee was excruciating. Apparently Jack Conklin Titans Jersey , the anterior cruciate is among the most important structures in the knee because it provides 86 of restraining tension to the joint. The ACL has mechanoreceptors that are sensitive to all knee movements and are important to trigger the muscle reflex actions. This would explain why I had such painful aching in my whole leg not just my knee. Apparently a torn ACL is actually referred to as an ACL deficiency, and affects timing of my knee muscle contraction. My body was trying to compensate for the ACL deficiency by using other muscles, namely my hamstrings. My hamstring reflex contraction has lengthened, and now my knee has limited anterior tibial displacement. In other words Jonnu Smith Titans Jersey , a torn ACL affects the whole leg and can lead to some very serious long term damage.

I have been booked for surgery, but in the meantime I wanted to stave off fatigue, and stay somewhat fit. I was referred to a physiotherapist by my surgeon. He suggested I use a knee brace. It was explained to me that one of the most important factors of sports medicine and rehab management is the use of braces and supports to prevent injuries and further existing ones. It can be used in conjunction with a rehabilitation program that incorporates strength training, flexibility and activity modification. It can provide mechanical protection to the knee area and stability to the joint while I am putting pressure on it. Since the goal of my physiotherapy is to strengthen the muscles around my knee to make up for the absence of an intact ACL Taywan Taylor Titans Jersey , I took his advice very seriously.

Knee braces are made from combinations of metals, foams, plastics, elastic materials and straps. Each brace has a specific purpose.

For my particular needs Corey Davis Titans Jersey , I was told I needed a rehabilitative brace to provide control and protection before and after knee surgery. Rehabilitative braces are used more than functional and prophylactic braces combined. They are used only to protect injured ligaments and control knee flexion and extension angles during the healing process. These braces are cost effective, especially compared to casting. They allow easy access for treatment and monitoring; their large frame limits excessive movement and sends a message to others to avoid nearing that area. Furthermore, they allow for my therapist to adjust range of motion based on my rate of healing. Rehabilitation braces help my physiotherapist keep pace with the ever changing healing process.
