There went your ACL – It’s decision making time!
Hopefully you have not hurt your ACL already, but if you have then we can feel your pain. Nobody ever wants this to happen, or even really expects it to happen until it does. We will address your treatment options in this article very soon, but first we want to tell you three things that we already know about you.
Things We Know About You, Without Having Met
1.) You do not want to get bored out of your mind reading this free article.
2.) You are looking for a brace to help protect or stabilize your ACL.
3.) You do not want to get ripped off when you buy your new ACL knee brace!
We will let you put those in your own order of importance, but we can reasonably expect that you agree with these statements. Right? (or wrong, if so let us know… )
ACL Leg Braces
These kinds of supports can help you:
A.) Support and improve your knee’s stability, thus helping to protect your ACL.
B.) As a result of improved physical stability, you will also have improved mental stability as well, because you will not have to worry so much about every little thing that is going on at your knee!
C.) Promote healing due to the meaningful support and alignment that the brace helps provide.
Custom Vs. Non-Custom Braces
Here is a tip that will save you a ton of cash. (What we mean by a “ton” is actually $1000.00). If that sounds worth it to you, keep reading.
What we mean by this is that if your knee is “within normal size and shape limits” then you can probably do very well with a non-custom knee brace. Many times people think that a custom knee support is the only way to go when you are trying to support your ACL, but this is not so true. Trust us, we are brace specialists!
The thing that will happen with a custom knee brace is:
A.) You will get some meaningful support
B.) But, you will also pay a premium for the support you are paying, to the point where you wish you would have seriously considered using a non-custom knee brace!
In The End
The bottom line is this… You can decide to go with a knee support or not. We would like to suggest not just trying to “be careful” with your knee, because that won’t cut it! Too many accidents can happen. Do yourself a favor and do not look back with regrets six months from now, wishing that you would have looked closer at a knee support while you still had time!
