Thinking of asking for knee braces and finger splints

      @lola_ specifically would stay away from velcro and metal if you can on a knee brace. just a simple sleeve is most practical and easiest to use

      loved my knee brace, definitely helped keep my kneecap from moving all over the place. there are a lot of knee braces you can buy at the store. i would recommend a sleeve- without metal. and there's another one that's small, it's just a little band that goes under the kneecap. i like that one bc its small and convenient but if you bend your knee too much the Velcro can come apart and band comes right off

      Finger splints are amazing if you find the right ones for you!

      Has your doctor suggested them for injuries?

          @Bee123 Then it sounds like you’re on the right track! My doctors have always been conservative about bracing but sometimes it’s needed. And it can make you more comfortable

Some people have found relief and support from knee braces and finger splints, such as silver ring splints or Oval 8 plastic ring splints. They can help with joint stability and reduce pain. It's worth discussing these options with your physical therapist or healthcare provider to determine if they would be suitable for your needs.
