    Braces have come a long way in recent years and they are rapidly changing the way we deal with injuries. I think this blog is important for people who struggle with physical limitations caused by either chronic health issues or from injuries. The simplest thing to do is to give up and claim that you cannot continue to do such an such an activity based on the problem. It just is not true. Will it be as easy, no, but worth it – most certainly. I think you hit it on the nail when you go in depth about sizing. Everyone should research and possibly even try more than one product in order to find what works for them. I think some just try one thing and when it is uncomfortable, they give up. Fit is essential. Great quote at the end, it is one of my favorites, as it applies to life in its entirety.

    • I think there’s a lot of misinformation out there that unfortunately can feed into the anxiety of someone recovering from an injury that requires he or she to use a brace. I wanted to give reasoned and informed assurance as to why one can overcome an injury with the use of a good knee brace. Yes, indeed, braces have come a long way. I think the Bauerfeind Knee Brace is a good example. Where braces once seemed to inhibit natural movements, they now help. They make it possible for one to concentrate less on the pain and more on recovery.

    This is a wonderful and well-written post. I will have to share this with my husband; he has been trying for a few months now to get back to his former form after sustaining a knee injury on the track. If I will be contributing this to his recovery, then it’s worth it. I will for sure look at getting the Bauerfeind Knee Brace.Thanks so much for this review; it’s also inspirational.

    • Hi Jenifer,
      As I said in the post, Some of you may be familiar with my posts on knee injuries. The big takeaway is that any real solution worth a damn has to address load—or amount of pressure on the knee. Anything less is a joke—just some cat out to get your money. I was very happy to know that the makers of the Bauerfeind Knee Brace actually understand how your knee works. I think they have come up with a brace that gives support but also allows enough flexibility for you to feel that all your moves are natural. Let me know how your husband likes the Bauerfiend. I’m sure it will help him in his recovery.
