I had a tear in my meniscus. My knee was locking constantly on a day by day basis by just doing menial tasks, ( getting up or down ect).
I was used to playing hockey 3 to 4 times a week, now it was almost impossible to play without locking my knee.
I was on a wait list for seeing a surgeon, but it was 8 months.
I saw the King Brand ad on Fox news.com and decided to try it since the info made sense, ( increase blood flow to injured area).
Sure enough after a couple months my symptoms were reduced , another couple months and I was playing hock regularly again. I finally saw the surgeon early,after 5 months at which point I no longer had symptoms, so he said no need for surgery unless symptoms come back.
I continued to use my King Brand Knee Brace regularly every 4 hours, and a year later my knee is practically 100%, I never missed anyy hockey the whole time and did not need surgery.
I recently had another knee injury in the same knee, ( another player plowed into my knee from the side, and sprained both inside and outside ligaments and hurt the meniscus.)
I immediately used ice and the Kings brand Knee brace, every 4 hours again and 8 weeks in, I have been skating for 4 weeks and am almost ready to jump in again to play full speed, but my physio therapist was saying it would be another couple months.
I told him ( as well as the specialist), about the King Brand product but they were sceptical. I just laugh inside, because I love hockey and want to heal and be back as soon as possible after injury and do not want surgery, if it can be avoided and I can confidently say after my experience the King brand wrap has helped my healing by at least 40% and in the case of the meniscus, it actually healed it, even though practically everyone was telling me it was not going to happen and that surgery would be necessary to fix a meniscus.
I even use the pad on other parts of my body,(like low back, other knee, ect) when I am feeling discomfort or injury, and the increase in blood flow helps and heals those sections as well.
I would recommend looking into it and reading the info for yourself and not let other people discourage you, even if they are surgeons or doctors and consider giving the product a try.
It has worked for me.
