    Sorry to hijack this thread for a second, this question was not worth it's own.

    Do knee braces help much with old knee injuries? I hurt mine a few years back after a decade of rugby union and occasionally if i bang someone else's knee with a kick/check it comes back with a vengeance.

    i have no acl in one knee-braces work up to a point depending on what you are doing with it. I get on fine with kickboxing ( have learned the hard way certain kicks are no go) and no gi. throws and transitioning from stand up to ground is fairly hairy and gives me the heebee jeebies. I simply did not have the luxury of taking several months off work to get the thing fixed. learning what I can do with it and what I cant has not been easy. I train purely for recreation-if you were considering fighting you would need more than the brace.

    Thanks for the info. If a torn ACL is limiting your movement that much than I may be in the clear. I have a pretty good range of motion except for the kneelin position I mentioned earlier. I am probably going to have to lay off kicking in the long term and focus more in other areas.

    Thanks to everyone for the info, keep it coming!

    Training MA without health insurance is a financial disaster waiting to happen. It sounds like you are in the position of either paying 10+ grand for knee surgery, or just going through life with a permanent injury. Sorry!

    Go get health insurance... even a crappy policy with super high deductibles is way better than no coverage at all.

    I tore my ACL about 2 1/2 years ago. Along the way I was told the following by my doctor:

    1) After the first couple of days, the pain I was in was not due to the torn ACL, it was due to the torn meniscus that happended at the same time. After the initial pain of the tear, the ACL will not hurt.

    2) Many, many people go through life with torn ACLs; but most do not end up performing in sports that do a lot of starting and stopping in the forward/backward direction.

    3) My surgeon suggested the ACL Reconstruction surgery because I wanted to continue with MA training and I wanted to be able to teach my kids to play soccer. For instance, he told me that if the only physical activities I wanted to do were golf and jogging, he didn't suggest the surgery to repair.

    About the recovery time: I was only out of work for one week. Used crutches for one month, but only because the doc said so. After 3 months I was cleared to go back to running/jogging "in a straight line", not sudden stops or twisting motions. Gradually returned to normal; was released to do anything I wanted after 6 months.

    The only brace he had me use was for immediately following surgery to keep my leg straight. That was for one week. After about three months I asked about getting fitted for a knee brace, he said "What do you need a brace for? Is your other knee giving you problems?". I do not wear a brace at all, for any activity.

    By far the worst thing about the surgery was the physical therapy. It was more difficult, more painful, and much more expensive than any part of the surgery.

    Good luck with whatever you end up doing.

    Quoted for truth.

    Thats why i'm glad my parents have the GOOD insurance! lol.

    I sort of have a question, don't mean to de-rail at all

    Yesterday, i had the surgery to repair the torn meniscus in my left knee.

    Mother fucker hurts like a bitch, i can barely put weight on my leg, and any movement doesn't hurt (due to a large bottle of 'feel good' pills, lol) but it feels...strained, sort of. Kinda like my knee is going, "hey, smart-ass, don't do that".

    How long till i can start training again?

    i don't see him again till the 23rd.


    He said something about 2 weeks, but, i mean, i figured as long as i didn't do anything to stress the knee, it would be ok?

    I don't know. I'm going to go pass the **** out again.
