I am almost a full year out from an ACL/PCL rupture and reconstruction. I also ruptured my MCL at the same time, and I think that is actually what is giving me the most trouble right now. I have been skiing regularly, but just in the midwest and my knee has been holding up alright without any brace, just tape. I will however, be heading out west next week and plan to get a bit more aggressive. Does anybody have any recommendations on good braces to help with the MCL instability and also maybe to provide some ACL/PCL protection. My ortho isn't really a believer in bracing, but I would like to try it in an attempt to reduce some of the pain and inflammation I have been experiencing while skiing. Like I said, I think the ACL and PCL are pretty stable, but I am having a significant amount of swelling and pain around the MCL. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
