    Not as difficult as you might think....

    Coreene,
    YOu also have a multi-ligament knee. That is for sure an indication to use a brace for activity from here on out.

    E.A.
    while prolo has benefits, this is not one of those times. Based on your history, I'd say there is quite a bit going on within the joint. There are some ACL forums full of...

    The recovery from a "partial" is not that different than from surgery. It is more or less accepted that these eventually loosen up to "full" tear laxity.

    The trauma to the meniscus and secondary...

    Not enough information......

    nor in relative terms time for enough functional recovery.
    There are multiple considerations from discipline to tack to strengthening to consider.

    What you are describing is the bodies natural response to keep your center of mass over the base of support (foot),

    My observations from a mechanical perspective:

    I've seen data that shows the average rider mouth injury from a horse accident (kick etc) is upper side of 4 figures. A mouth guard would CERTAINLY cut down on that value. Just make sure it fits...

  19. IMO brace style(s) don't matter.....

    As long as it's comfortable.

    What is MOST important is an appropriate off horse strength training program.

    Also, cavalry foot and no heels down to maximize calf function.

    For what you describe as an acute problem, I would speculate something changed (injury, learn new technique.....)with you that made it happen.
