Five months back I went from no problems to crippled in one day. The (£300) MRI scan showed tears and damage in both meniscus (cartilage). After 5 months I can walk 18 holes without any problems and I can play 9 holes (badly on one leg). I am keen to try a knee brace but there are so many options. The physio simply says that they don't recommend them (I think she's worried I might ask the NHS to pay for it). I am male, 73 years old. Does anyone have any experience with knee braces e.g. some are hinged, some are huge?
