Understand now?
I beg to differ...Knee braces are for protecting the KNEE JOINT ONLY! They do not protect the upper and lower leg bones.You can still break a femur or lower leg bones while wearing a brace.I know-I wear them.As a matter of fact ,If Quinn was wearing a brace, it could have conceivably contributed to a broken femur I've had this very lenghty discussion with several orthopods..
