I use the Bauerfeind Genutrain, and it stays in place pretty well. Maybe a readjustment once a game if at all. It's been used by some NBA players like Dirk, Jeremy Lin, and Kobe if that counts for anything.
Ohhh, the actual bone growth does make sense.
After every class, the spot right below the knee ball is always really large and painful. I've tried a pateller band and that helped a bit, but didn't stop it.
If you don't use one, I've heard this is great for OS and bursitis - [link]
I'm in the same boat with my knees. After about a dozen full and partial dislocations I had a lateral release on my right knee (and a second quasi-release due to scar tissue reconnecting it). The left knee is also mis-shapen, bur I have been lucky with it..save a few scopes here and there.
The truth of it is that you have to know your limits. It sucks when you can only get a couple of rolls in after class and have to sit on the side and watch everyone else. But if you can treat it more like a marathon and less like a sprint, you should be good.
I recommend Bauerfiend knee braces (I use the GenuTrain) and learn how to sweep from side-control as you'll spend a lot of time there because It sucks not being able to shoot for a takedown with any sort of explosiveness or sprawl super-effectively...but not nearly as bad as being crushed in side control.
I own a pair of Bauerfeind Genutrain knee braces and they're great for protecting your knees since they have gel padding all around your knee cap to keep it in place.
They're pricey but well worth the money.
Here you go! Bauerfeind GenuTrain. Truly fantastic.
I had pain from deadlifts for a while, but they came back faster than my ability to squat. My knee was super nasty though, I couldn't even bend my knee without pain for at least four weeks. I'd just listen to your body/PT and not push anything too hard right off the bat :)
I've had this bad boy for almost a year now and I still love it. I hate that I have to wear it, but it works really well. It's comfortable, washable, flexible, non-limiting, and keeps the pain at bay.
I love those kneepads! 100% the best knee protection I've ever owned. I use these.
I wear this every time I train. It’s an awesome brace, little pricey but it’s the best.
