    • I am having my meniscus removed because it is unable to be repaired. I have already had 2 meniscus surgeries. The doctors said I will be needed a knee replacement due to arthritis. He is going to scrape as much arthritis out. I am looking for a knee brace that will sport my knee since I won't have the meniscus to soften the walking impact. I am a teacher so I am on my feet a lot. What do you recommend? I want to delay the knee replacement as long as possible.
    • The OA reaction knee brace would be provide some unloading where your meniscus has been removed to help minimize the effects, while you will still have the shock absorbtion of the webbing similar to the standard Reaction Web Knee Brace.

    • My knee center measured at 15. My thigh was 20 and calf16 inches. which size knee brace you you recommend? the sizing chart is very vague.
    • A Medium/Large would be the correct size for you with the DonJoy Reaction Web Knee Brace.
  • Rita at 9/7/2016 1:39 PM
    • I have this brace but the Velcro has worn out! Is there a way to get a replacement piece or do I need to buy a new brace?

  • gary at 9/3/2016 10:25 AM
    • I have been using the Donjoy Reaction Knee Brace since Dec 2015. Love it and it but lately the velcor does not provide a long lasting connection to the strap. In the middle of a tennis match, if I bend or stretch, the strap/straps pop open which is not only annoying but dangerous for my knee. I had hoped the brace would last longer than 9 months. Is there something I can do to enhance the strength of the velcro connection? Or do you provide replacement straps?
    • Please contact us directly to order the replacement back pad for the Reaction. Please call 1800-553-6019
  • Lucy at 9/2/2016 3:09 PM
    • I have a bakers cyst on my left knee. Had xrays this morning and was told that I have chondromalaysia and degenerative meniscus tearing on the inside of my left knee which surgery will not really help. I was told a brace could be preventative in further deterioration/injury of the meniscus. Orthopedist recommended I wear a hinged brace while playing tennis. Will the Reaction web knee brace work for me. Others Ive looked at are so bulky and heavy looking.
    • No, the Reaction Web would not offer the support your doctor is looking for you to have based on that injury. You should be in a hinged brace like the Economy Hinged Knee or the Bionic.

  • Gloria Pinza at 8/31/2016 6:32 PM
    • I have a badly torn meniscus. Everyday activities are fine, but the knee gets sore on long walks and on hikes. And it hurts if I jog more than a short distance I do a lot of walking and day hiking. Is the Reaction Web Brace the right one for me.
    • Thank you for contacting Better Braces. The Reaction Web Knee brace is indicated for patellar femoral injuries. Based on your injury a better brace for you would be the Bionic Knee as it has hinges on both sides of the brace to provide stability for the knee joint. https://www.betterbraces.com/bionic-knee-brace

  • Erin Donalson at 8/19/2016 11:13 PM
    • I just had surgery today for a torn MCL and meniscus, and also plica syndrome was discovered during the surgery. I am very active, I am an equestrian (lots of knee stress when landing from jumps) and I also play soccer and volleyball, and hike and run often. I was hoping to continue all of these activities I was wondering if the Donjoy Reaction would be good for me?
    • The Reaction Web Knee would not offer enough support or protection for your injury. We would suggest the Bionic Knee Brace. This provides support and stability to the MCL, as well as meniscus. Please see the information here: https://www.betterbraces.com/bionic-knee-brace
  • Jen at 8/17/2016 6:44 PM
    • My 68 year old mother has arthritis in her knee. She is wondering if this brace will work for her or if a sleeve would be better. She would wear a 2xl size brace.
    • The DonJoy Reaction WEB is for patella instabilities, if your mother has arthritis the DonJoy OA Reaction Web would be better suited. You can find more details on this brace here: https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-oa-reaction-web-knee-brace
  • Kali woodbeck at 8/17/2016 8:44 AM
    • I have pfj syndrome and tight hamstrings that cause pain in my knee. Long walks, stairs, and most physical activities cause pain. Is this brace a good choice for me?
    • The DonJoy Reaction Web Knee Brace is indicated for patellofemoral syndrome. Another brace that may fit your needs is the DonJoy Performer Patella Hinged Knee Brace. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-performer-hinged-patella-knee-brace-neoprene

  • Joel Thomas at 8/14/2016 9:08 PM
    • I have torn my meniscus playing basketball last year. But I play for a football team full contatime and everything. Will this brace give me enough support to keep playing but still be able to move and do what I did be fore I had the brace?
    • The DonJoy Reaction WEB Knee Brace will not provide enough support for your injury. We would recommend the Playmaker II knee brace. This will help protect MCL . the side hinges and both thigh and calf straps will give you the stability and support you are looking for. Please see link below:

      https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-playmaker-ii-knee-brace
  • Mary Cornwell at 8/9/2016 9:06 AM
    • Im a physical therapist. I would like to know if I position a patella in a desired position, will the brace be able to maintain that position. For example, when I place my patient's patella laterally and inferiorly via taping she no longer has pain during functional exercise. She is sensitive to tape, so I was hoping a brace would achieve the same outcome.
      Thank you
    • The DonJoy Tru-Pull Lite will do a better job at replacing taping. It will pull your kneecap toward the medial side just like patella taping will do.

  • kmolder at 7/20/2016 3:00 PM
    • I have had previous surgery (2004) for a torn meniscus and some removal of the patellar tendon as well have tend to have issues with my Iliotibial Band of the left knee. However, I have also had surgery for a torn meniscus in my right knee (2009) and need a brace I can alternate with while running, jogging, cycling, working out, etc. Is the Reaction WEB Knee Brace best choice for me or should I be looking at the Bionic brace? Subluxation of the left knee has no longer been an issue. Biggest concern seems to be over use, hyperextension, and now arthritis. It seems the more I over use, the more I irritate the IT band and tear up my meniscus and end up having to have surgery to clean out my knees. Trying to avoid additional surgery while maintaining an active lifestyle. The prescribed braces from the doctor are just too big, bulky, and outdated.
    • The DonJoy Performance Bionic Knee would be a good brace for these issues, as it offers more protection with hyperextension as well as meniscus support.
      https://www.betterbraces.com/bionic-knee-brace
  • Alicia at 7/16/2016 9:28 PM
    • I would love some advice as to which knee brace will provide the best support for me. I have chondromalacia and a subluxating patella. I had a lateral release surgery 20 years ago. I have mild patellar instability that causes pain when bending/straightening. I am looking for a brace to wear for cardio at the gym and while hiking. I'm considering the reaction web which I like due to the very low profile, the tru-pull, tru-pull lite and tru-pull wraparound. The lite concerns me because of how short it is but the regular tru-pull seems more bulky than what I want. The wraparound looks great but has some negative reviews regarding the need to be repositioned. I appreciate any guidance!
    • For chondromalacia and a subluxating patella, you may want to consider a DonJoy Drytex Hinged Air Knee Brace, https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-drytex-hinged-air-knee-brace,it will offer stability with the hinges and help with tracking and patella misalignment. If this appears too bulky, the DonJoy Reaction, will help with alignment and the webbing will absorb the shock and alleviate knee pain.
  • Whitney at 7/13/2016 3:57 PM
    • I've had a couple of subluxations to my left knee that occurred while playing soccer which also caused a small tear in my meniscus. This was almost a year ago. My knee is mostly better minus there is still some pain with bending and/or I can feel it try to slide out of place when walking briskly. Would this knee brace help to keep that from occurring so I can play soccer again? The subluxation was caused by a pivoting motion and I seem to be fine running. I've only really had issues with it when walking too fast but know I will probably have another subluxaction if I pivot and do not have any support.
    • You may want to take a look at our DonJoy Lateral J knee brace do to its side hinges and help with your tracking issue. It also comes in a drytex material which allows the leg to breath when playing sports. Please see link below:

  • Aynsley at 7/13/2016 8:17 AM
    • I just received my Donjoy reaction web knee brace. I have chondromalacia patella and bought it to wear when I bike and use the elliptical at the gym. I just wanted to make sure it was the right choice to purchase so that it helps with my tracking. Also, is this something I should wear daily (at work sitting / walking around / etc.) or just when I am doing activities? Thanks for your help!
    • Yes, this would be a great fit for your injury. The webbing on the brace works as a shock absorber and helps with your everyday lifestyle. This could be worn all day or when needed it's all personal preference.
  • Whitney at 7/8/2016 9:17 AM
    • First, I wanted to confirm if the sleeve comes with this brace?

      Second, I wanted to see if this knee brace would work for me. Almost a year ago, I had a couple of subluxations of the knee and what appeared to be a small tear in my meniscus after having my MRI. I injured my knee playing soccer after making a pivot motion to turn around. I would like to continue to play but my knee still has pain with certain movements. Will this keep the subluxations from occurring and allow me to play soccer again? i still sometimes feel my knee try to slide out of place when I'm walking so I'm sure it might help with that as well.

      Thanks!
    • Yes, this brace does come with the undersleeve. This would be a good choice for a light weight brace to help you return to activities. It will help keep your knee aligned and help stabilize the knee and patella. The innovative webbing absorbs shock and shifts weight to alleviate knee pain.
  • McKinley at 6/30/2016 10:31 PM
    • My daughter has been diagnosed with Sinding-Larsen-Johansson syndrome. Similar to Osgood-Schlatter disease but at the bottom of the kneecap. She does at lot of different sports. Would this brace be right for her?
    • Yes, the DonJoy Reaction Web would be a good choice. This brace works to shift the weight away from the painful areas in the knee. The Webbing design offers absorb-shocking support and reduces your pain.
  • Kat at 6/27/2016 4:43 PM
    • Is it common for the fabric on the back of this brace to pinch the back of the knee? Will this get better as it wears?
    • This isn't a common issue, my suggestion if you continue to have this issue is ware our sleeve that is included in your DonJoy Reaction Web Knee Brace. Its possible this could be a size/fit issue. For help we advise you call in to speak with one of our Brace Experts for further assistance on the size/fit issue. Please call 1-800-553-6019
  • Cynthia at 6/25/2016 5:32 AM
    • My 90 year old Mother is experiencing buckling in her knee when she walks. She has very delicate skin and I'd like to get her a wrap around brace, not a pull-on, to support her knee when she goes for her walks. Is this the right brace for her? Thank you.
    • The Reaction Web Knee Brace may not be the most comfortable for your mother's delicate skin. The Don Joy Economy Hinged Knee, https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-economy-hinged-knee , or the Procare Reddie Hinged Knee Brace, https://www.betterbraces.com/procare-reddie-hinged-knee-brace, may offer more support for the balance issue and the Drytex material is a comfortable option.
  • Dana Neal at 6/24/2016 6:26 PM
    • I had ACL and Meniscus surgery 4 years ago and have been playing in a ACL brace. I am collegiate volleyball player and am trying to get a new brace thats a little lighter and not as restricting. I have little knee pain and my main focus is if the knee brace would be good for me if I just want a little bit of support for my knee as a whole? I could just not wear it at all but I want something that will also prevent day to day wear and tear.
    • The DonJoy Reaction Knee Brace will not offer ACL protection, you may want to check the DonJoy Performance Bionic FullStop Knee Brace. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-performance-bionic-fullstop-knee-brace Its lighter weight than a rigid ACL brace, and still offer support, protection, and help prevent the day to day wear and tear you are concerned about.
  • Katy at 6/22/2016 10:16 AM
    • I tore my ACL and my meniscus. I am getting married in three weeks and do not have time to have surgery before. The ACL is not causing me any pain, but the meniscus is. Would this brace help me with the meniscus pain? And is it small enough to wear under a wedding dress without being noticed? Thanks!
    • The DonJoy Reaction WEB Knee Brace would not offer the ACL support you need. The Bionic Fullstop Knee, https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-performance-bionic-fullstop-knee-brace would be more beneficial for both your ACL and meniscus issues.
  • Susan at 5/28/2016 3:23 PM
    • Where on the leg do I measure to get the best fit.
    • We recommend to measure directly over the knee cap, with your leg straight for the best measurement.
  • Anders at 5/11/2016 6:44 PM
    • I have patela tracking issues in both knees. I was given neoprene ones but they gave me rashes and blisters will this brace work to force the patella to track correctly?
    • The Don Joy Reaction Web Knee will stabilize the patella but does not really have the means to control tracking. The don Joy Tru-Pull Lite is a better choice for patella tracking. The material is drytex so you will not have to worry about a neoprene issue

  • Eric at 5/10/2016 8:09 AM
    • I tore my patella tendon and have had surgery. Overtime I have pain on the front of my knee and swelling. Is this the correct brace for me?
    • The Don Joy Reaction Web Knee will decrease that pain in the frount of your knee. This is one of the benefits of the brace. It absorbs forces on your knee a dispearses it away from the front of the knee decreasing pain.

  • Vance at 5/6/2016 1:00 PM
    • My daughter has been diagnosed with Osgood Schlatters and has had trouble returning to activity due to pain. She is a softball pitcher. Would this be a good brace to help her in her return to activity or would it me too restrictive?
    • The don Joy Reaction Web Knee would be a good brace to use with her diagnosis. The brace will absorb force on the knee and decrease the knee pain she is feeling. The brace should not limit her activity in any way.
  • Gail at 5/6/2016 10:34 AM
    • I have in my left knee a complex tear posterior horn meniscus. I have osteo arthritis in this knee. A cortisone shot has given me relief. I am wondering if the Donjoy Reaction Web Knee Brace would be the correct choice for me for walking and cycling.

  • Bobby at 4/25/2016 5:52 PM
    • What is the difference between the DONJOY REACTION WEB KNEE BRACE and the DONJOY OA REACTION WEB KNEE brace?
    • Both braces will help to decrease anterior knee pain but the OA Reaction has one hinge and it will help to unload a arthritic compartment of the knee. The hinge is placed on the opposite side of the the knee in which the pain is and it pushes the bones apart to give it some space. This unloads that compartment and decreases pain in that area
  • Lee at 4/24/2016 10:28 AM
    • I have a bone bruise of the patella with across the middle of the patella, especially when going downstairs. This is Not a bone bruise of the tibia, which has already been treated. Will this reaction web knee brace unload the stress on the patella enough to allow healing?
    • The Reaction will support the patella and decrease pain around the patella
  • Pierce at 4/23/2016 9:24 AM
    • I play collegiate basketball and have patellar tendinitis and was wondering if this would be a good product to endure a long basketball season

    • Follow up question?
      I have had MCL surgery and subluxation of the patella in my right knee with past partial dislocation. I was looking into the Tru Pull system but I feel like the reaction web brace will provide better support for sports and weightlifting. What is your recommendation?
    • With subluxation and partial dislocation of the patella the Tru-pull Lite would be a better slousion. The brace is still light wight and can be worn for sports.

    • I have had MCL surgery and nerve damage on my right knee. Now being told my patella easily becomes dislocated and subluxation of patella? Do you have any suggestions for every day use/ some sports?
    • I would suggest taking a look at the Tru-Pull Lite. The brace is specifically designed to help pull the kneecap back into the correct position so it will track correctly. The brace is worn by someone who has had problems with dislocation

    • I had a tibial Osteotomy, modified lateral release and patellar resurfacing (with graft). I play rugby and hope to return to rugby and or soccer once my recovery is complete. Is this the brace for me keeping in mind that especially in rugby I can't wear anything that has hard pieces (plastic or medal).
    • Yes the Reaction Web would be a good brace for you to wear when returning to Rugby. The front piece is a elastomeric material and that back is soft material

    • I have had a previous ACL and Meniscus surgery on both knees. After over a decade of competitive sports my MRI showed signs of chondromalacia, tricompartmental osteoarthritis, joint effusion, synovitis, meniscus degeneration, & mild ACL degeneration. I have an old Defiance Custom Donjoy from my original surgery that no longer fits properly, so It resulted in me purchasing an off the shelf hinge brace over the years. I'm hoping to find a lightweight brace that will provide stability, functionality, rehabilitation, & comfort. Do you have any suggestions?
    • Sounds like you need something for mild to moderate supprt with patella support as well. We have a variety of patello femoral braces that come with hinges for general joint support. The Don Joy Hinged Air Knee Brace is a brace that will offer mild to moderate joint stability and has a buttress that will stabilize the kneecap as well. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-drytex-hinged-air-knee-brace FYI you can be re-measrued and have your Defiance remade for less money than it cost to get it brand new.

    • My grandfather is in his 80's and his knees are both bone on bone and it's very painful for him to walk. Is there any brace you can recommend that will give him some help? Thank you, Tom
    • Hello,

      We offer several Osteoarthritis braces that can help with bone on bone. These braces are desinged to help only one side of the knee because they offload one side by increasing the load on the other side. The brace that we recommend for its amount of offload and ease of use is the OA Everyday. This will provide stabilization and offload for the knee. If you would like to try something that is not quite as rigid we recommend the OA Lite.

      Kind Regards,

      Lizette Salazar L.Ac., ATC

    • The Reaction Web will help with mild tracking issues but if you have more severe tracking you amy want to look at the Tru-Pull Lite or the Tru-Pull Advanced System knee braces. The Tru-pull braces are designed to keep the patella tracking correctly by pulling the patella into the correct position. The lite is shorter lower profile version of the Advanced System.

    • I've got a laundry list of issues- chondromalacia, patellofemoral syndrome, and joint hypermobility syndrome (sometimes referred to as hypermobility Ehlers Danlos). Will this knee brace support my knees if I'm running or jogging? And it's okay to tell me I'm insane for considering running or jogging with those knee issues!
    • The brace will help with all of those issues but you should ask you medical professional if you shold be running
  • Kristen P at 4/8/2016 8:30 PM
    • I'm 29, I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.. I've just been diagnosed with degeneration of my right medial meniscus as well as patellar tendinosis.. I'm looking for something that will help to decrease the pain in both the front of my knee and back/inside as well as help stabilize my knee. I'd use it for everyday use (active job as a nurse). Would this be a good choice for me? I've heard great things about this brace from other people with ehlers-danlos, by the way!
    • The Reaction Web knee brace will help to prevent pain in the front of the knee as it is mainly considered a patellofemoral brace. It will offer mild medila lateral support as it does not have big hinges on the sides. I would suggest trying this brace and if you feel you need more support then possibly go to a hinged knee brace, such as the economy hinged knee brace

  • SR at 4/7/2016 8:25 AM
    • I have ordered both the XS/S and the M/L and neither fit correctly(one too big, one too small). What other brace might work? The brace I am trying to replace is an old Donjoy sleeve that had flexible metal bands down each side and a removable patella insert to help with general pain while playing competitive tennis.
    • It may be time to look at a different brace. The don Joy Elastic Knee Sleeve has spiral stays on the sides of the sleeve and it has a patellar donut http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-deluxe-elastic-knee-sleeve
  • Ray at 4/6/2016 7:00 PM
    • Thigh measures 22.75. Would you recommend the large since it goes up to 23.5 or would you recommend the XL?
    • The sizing for the Reaction Web Knee is blended:
      M/L 18.5-23.5
      XL/XXL: 23.5-29.5

      So you would most likley want to order the M/L
  • Jeff at 4/6/2016 3:46 PM
    • I have medial knee pain along the joint line that might be a torn medial meniscus. I'm looking for a brace that will give support while running. Is this the best choice?
    • The Reaction Web will provide support to the knee and will absorb the forces on the front of the knee to help decrease anterior knee pain. You may want to consider the OA Reaction web knee brace to unload that inside joint line of you knee. You would order the medial brace to unload that side and decrease pain

    • Looking for a brace that will help with my knee that is easily hyperextended. Meniscus tare and PCL tare. Would this brace protect my knee from hyperexendtion??
    • No it would not provide enough support to prevent hyperextension. You will need a hinged knee brace such as the Playmaker II knee brace. this brace will provide support to the knee and will come with extension stops that can be installed in the brace to prevent hyperextension

    • Hi, I'm recovering from ACL, MCL, Medial Meniscus & Lateral Miniscus years in my left knee. Have had 2 surgeries and over 12 months physical therapy. All healed, but wanted to know if you have a product you recommend to get me started walking/running on a regular basis again? Currently wear knee sleeves, but they slide down & don't provide much support.
      Thanks!
    • You could try the DonJoy Playmaker II with fourcepoint hinge knee brace. The brace will offer moderate support for a reconstructed ACL and help to train your knee to stay out of the "at risk" position. This will help to prevent re-tear of the ACL.

  • Patrick at 3/17/2016 7:57 AM
    • I have a rather bad case of arthritis under my right knee cap. Currently I wear a compression sleeve and it works great to suppose the pain. The issue is that the knee sleeves tend to slide down and I was looking for something more stable. I play softball and do Crossfit do mobility is a priority. Do you record a brace like this or should I stick with the knee sleeves?
    • The Don Joy Reaction Web knee brace will be a good alternative to the sleeve you are currectly using. The braces design will help to decrease knee pain in the front of your knee around the kneecap.

    • I have this brace and love it, but wonder if it is possible to get a new back for it. I wear it all day every day and after a while the velcro and fuzzy material get worn and it no longer stays on as well.
    • We unfortunatly do not have a replacement back for the brace but we do have a velcro kit that can be purchased to help with poor velcro sticking. It is called the High Cycle Velcro kit.

    • I suffer from patellar tendonitis due to over use (kickboxing/xfit/running) plus have meniscus tear and partial mcl tear. Use the donjoy performance webtech which works well. I am between sizes L and XL but the XL seems to fit great. I need another set and was considering the donjoy web reaction for use on both knees? Is the size consistent between the two models? Should I go with the L/XL with the reaction. Measurements are 17 at knee, 23.5 above knee and 17.5 below knee. Thanks in advance for the help.
    • The Reaction Web comes in sizes that are a little different soif you fit into a XL in the Webtech then you would need to get the XL/XXL which will fit a thigh between 23.5-29.5

    • I have an artificial (metal) tibia that is attached to my kneecap with a baseplate. I am a ski instructor but my leg hurts in kneecap area after multiple days of teaching. Would the web reaction brace help stabilize this area and allow me to ski with less pain? Thank you.....Mike

  • T at 2/23/2016 4:01 AM
    • My boyfriend has issues with both knees. His left knee is mainly just his medial meniscus and some it band pain. But his right knee. He hyper extended it a year ago and has continued to reinjure it throughout the year + we have a 3 yr old who's all over him. He's always in pain and one PT said something about patella tracking. It's a little swollen but not head of cauliflower status. No bruising but some slight skin discoloration in some spots on his left and right. He says the right knee pain is in the center on the inside and on top he says it doesn't feel the same right above and below his patellar tendon. Which brace should he use? This or the bionic or both?
    • I would suggest the Reaction Web Knee for the right knee and the Bionic for the left knee. The Reaction will help with anterior knee pain and the bionic will give mosre stability to the left knee that was hyper-extending
  • Alex at 2/20/2016 8:36 AM
    • Hi I currently wear a Ossur Unloader One - Medial Knee Brace. Do you have a similar brace?
    • We have a single upright OA brace called the OA Reaction Web Knee Brace. Our OA braces push against the unaffected side to unload the affected side of the knee. I this cast you would be ordering the medial knee brace and the hinge that does the offloading would go against the outside of your knee.

    • I had a full dislocation 3 years, and in the last year suffered 2 partial dislocations while playing sports. Would this work for me?

I am going skiing soon and haven't been skiing in 15 years so I want to make sure I keep my knee safe. Is this a good brace for that purpose?
    • The Reaction will absorb the force on your knee while you are skiing and dispearse it away to decrease any knee pain in the front of your knee. the brace will profide mild support to the knee as well.

    • Hi, I am bone on bone in one knee (2 clean out surgeries next is knee replacement) and it locks sometime, the other knee is painful when over flexed too straight and feels exactly like the other one before I had surgery. Both knees cruch and crackle with even a small bend. I was a runner for many years. I am now doing martial arts and want to protect my knees as much as possible. I will need to wear the brace for 2 hours a week when training high impact. I do lots of other exercise but it is low impact (Pilates, yoga, walking) Is this the right brace for me or should I be using one of the other types you have available? Many thanks
    • You can try the OA Reaction Web Knee brace for the knee that has bone on bone. The brace is for mild OA but it may help with the pain during that time period that you are exercising. The brace has a singe hinge that offloads the side opposite the hinge. The webing design will help with anterior knee pain as well. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-oa-reaction-web-knee-brace

    • I'm 70 years old. Three years ago I fell and broke my right patella; I had a very slow recovery with complications (scar tissue and tendinitis). 1 1/2 years into recovery I fell again and broke the tibia plateau of the same leg. I've struggled with much pain in my knee ever since. The doctor says I don't have the typical patellofemoral syndrome issue and xrays don't show serious arthritis, so he says to continue physical therapy to get my strength back (particularly quad muscles). I've had various braces along the way and am looking for a good one to stabilize the patella to keep it on track as I continue exercises to strengthen my atrophied muscles. The Donjoy Reaction caught my attention. Would it be good for me?
    • Yes the Reaction would be a good choice for you and might even help with that knee pain that you have. The brace will help to stabilize the patella and decrease anterior knee pain.

A few times I have over climbed and experienced a flare up, but this seems to be getting less and less frequent over time. I do experience slight knee pain every day, but mostly I'm looking for something to provide extra support while I'm hiking and rock climbing to reduce strain on my meniscus. I didn't see a "rock climbing" section in the brace advisor. Is this the right brace for me?

      Thanks!
    • The Don Joy Reaction Web Knee Brace will help to prevent any anterior knee pain or strain on the front of your knee.

    • I was diagnosed this summer with tri-compartmental osteoarthritis in both knees. I went for PT, and they advised I also have patellofemoral knee pain, with my kneecaps tracking to the outside of the leg. They gave me a taping technique for the PFPS that has worked amazingly well - I do not have pain when I am taped. However, in the past month, the tape has started irritating my skin. I was looking at braces as an option - I am wondering if the Reaction might be the best choice for me. Your thoughts? Thanks!
    • Lori
      The Reaction will help with the patellar problems but not the OA. The OA Reaction will help both if you have either the medial or lateral compartment that needs addressing, but not both.
  • Lindsay howard at 11/19/2015 9:41 AM
    • after lots of research on your website, I'm torn between which brace to choose. The Reaction Web Knee Brace or the TruPull Light. I've had patellar tracking issues with the patella tracking to the outside for 10 years. Never had dislocations though. (I'm 31)For the last 10 years I've been unable to do any physical activity beyond light walking. I had lateral release surgery on both knees in April. So far it seems to have failed. Although the pain I experienced walking has decreased a lot, the acute pain I have under my knee caps when bending to pick up anything or when I try to stand from sitting or sit from standing is much much worse. Not sure if that pain is coming from misalignment or just damage under the knee cap. Which brace would you recommend for help with the specific knee-bending pain ? Thank you so much for your company's incredible customer support! I've been so impressed by that!
    • Lindsay
      The Reaction Web Knee brace will help with the pain you are feeling. The Reaction is really good at reducing anterior knee pain.

The first time I sprained my quad, then I strained my mcl, and now, a couple of days ago I strained my lcl and sprained my quad again. I have been recruited to play in college but the only way my mother will let me continue to play volleyball is if I play in a brace. Would this brace help or should I keep looking?
    • Alison
      The Reaction does not give the support for the LCL so I would suggest a hinged knee brace such as the Palymaker II.

    • Julia
      First thing is check to make sure you are in the right size because if the brace is too tight then bending the knee should not rip the Velcro off. If you are sure you are in the right sized brace you can call BetterBraces and get a new brace because yours is defective

I do have the figure 8 wires and pins holding my knee cap together. I am having some tendinitis pain and still having a little instubility getting up from sitting on the ground. The donjoy brace the dr. gave me is bulky and very uncomfortable. I am looking for something light that I can wear to work everyday. Is this the right brace for me?
    • Carolyn
      Yes the Reaction may work for you. The brace absorbs force on the knee and disperses it away from the front of the knee to decrease pain.
  • Kierstin at 11/8/2015 4:54 PM
    • I sprained my patella tendon, and my meniscus and I play volleyball. Would you recommend this brace or another one for this type of sport?
    • Kierstin
      Yes I would recommend this brace for you
  • Ann at 11/6/2015 4:30 AM
    • My husband currently has this brace, the rep that sold him the brace measured him for an XL/XXL which felt fine while walking around the physical therapists office, however when he wears it for more than a few minutes the top part on the thigh digs into his skin and causes bleeding so he doesn't wear the brace hardly at all. He has even loosened the top strap but then doesn't feel the support he needs in the knee. What would you recommend?
    • Ann
      Take the brace back to wear he received and let them know what is happening
  • Kyra at 10/28/2015 12:47 PM
    • I bought this brace a few weeks ago. It seems to be coming unstrapped when I bend my knee to far. I also wear it in the water for wakeboarding and waterskiing. Am I making the brace too tight or is this a sizing issue?
    • Kyra
      The velcro could be coming loose if it is too tight. I should not be doing that after a few weeks so call customer care and see if it can be replaced.
  • Kasey at 10/21/2015 1:33 PM
    • I have the reaction web knee brace and have been using it on and off for several years. I am noticing that when I wear it and walk up stairs me knee pops every step. Is this normal with this brace?
    • Kasey
      The popping you hear and feel is from arthritis under the kneecap and the brace will not stop that from happening but should help with any pain that occurs when the popping occurs
  • jeanne at 10/17/2015 5:04 PM
    • got xl xxl from my ortho and looking at size chart and trying it at home 1 day, too big.. can i send to you for a one size down... the sleeve is ok ... she didn't have the other size and we thought ok but as i try it .. i know i'll love it.. just want diff size
    • Jeanne
      You will have to back to the Doctors office to exchange the brace for a smaller size
  • Frances at 10/12/2015 6:08 PM
    • I have trouble with my knee hyperextending and I had surgery about a year ago to put my knee cap back in place after it being out for about 8 years. I need a brace that I can wear working out and while I'm on the job to help my knee cap stay in place and give my knee stability why I build back the muscle
    • Frances
      The Reaction Web Knee brace will help the problem you are having with the kneecap and will keep the kneecap tracking in the correct position. The brace will not help with hyper-extension and if you need a brace to prevent that you will need ahinged knee brace suck as the Don Joy Hinged Air Knee Brace. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-drytex-hinged-air-knee-brace
  • Kent at 10/5/2015 4:55 PM
    • I had ACL reconstructive surgery in March 2013. I am cleared for sports. I have some patella tracking issues. I ski and play basketball in my DonJoy Defiance knee brace, but feel this is a bit bulky. Plus I am 2 years out of surgery. Would this brace be a suitable alternative?
    • Kent
      The Reaction Web does not help to prevent further ACL injury but will help with patellofemoral pain and problems. The best prevention for further ACL injury is your Defiance
  • Bonnie at 10/1/2015 12:16 PM
    • Thigh measurement of just under 20 inches indicates a M/L for ordering this product. Is this considered between sizes and should actually order the XL for comfort/fit as recommended?
    • Bonnie
      The Reaction Web does run a little small so you may want to go a size up
  • CLH at 9/30/2015 2:39 PM
    • Hi. Hope you can guide me to the correct product. Dx: "abnormal morphology of midbody and posterior horn of medial meniscus consistent with meniscal degeneration and degenerative free edge tearing. " Some MCL edema from prior injury or tendinitis.
      I'm 55 yrs. old, 5'8", 230#. Pain in front of knee. Seems to reduce after 10 minutes of walking/elliptical trainer at moderate/brisk pace, but bad again soon after I stop at 60 min. Pain going down stairs, but not quite so bad going up. Also if bending knee at more than 90 º angle. Lateral movement causes intense pain front inside area.
      I want to be able to hike and bike again. Which product would provide the best support for me? Thanks.
    • The Don Joy Reaction Web Knee Brace will help to reduce that anterior knee pain while going up and down stairs. and while doing your activities. The brace is light weight and low profile. I think that this may be a brace for you to try
  • MLA at 9/28/2015 5:27 PM
  • jeff at 9/19/2015 12:58 PM
    • We already use this brace. Is the velcro strapping replaceable? If so where can it be found?
    • Jeff
      The soft back piece for the Reaction is not replaceable. If your brace is under warranty, the entire brace can be replaced.
  • Arzelius Payton at 9/11/2015 10:16 AM
    • Will this knee brace help with chondromalacia?
    • Arzelius
      Yes this brace will help with the pain associated with chondromalacia.
  • BreAnne at 9/2/2015 7:54 PM
    • I have alot of dislocation problems. All reasearch points to this brace. I rodeo and I would like a brace that goes over my jeans as they tend to bind up und my jeans when in the saddle. Is this a pull on brace or can it be unfassend
    • This brace is a wrap around so it will be easier to put over pants
  • Bethany at 8/28/2015 6:07 PM
    • I had a mcl knee strain a years ago that never completely healed and now my knee has lost almost all of its strength and support, and my mild impact knee brace isn't doing the job anymore. Would this provide a lot of support for my knee as well as support to my MCL?
    • No, this brace will not provide the support for the MCL that you need. You will need a hinged knee brace to provide that support. I would suggest the Economy hinged knee brace. If you feel that you need more support, the Playmaker II would be the next step up.
  • Robert at 8/27/2015 2:58 PM
    • I've had ACL reconstruction and partial removal of my meniscus on both knees. I've tried many braces. would you recommend this brace for me?
    • Sounds like you may have arthritis in both compartments of your knee. I recommend a general knee brace to provide support. You have several options based on if your looking for a brace with Rigid Hinges, Soft Hinges, or No hinges at all. For Rigid Hinge I suggest the Economy hinged knee, soft-hinged the Performer, and No Hinges the Reaction.
  • Xenon at 8/27/2015 2:12 AM
    • hello,
      I had artho knee surgery 7/2/15. I had a mensicetomy. Two parts of the meniscus was shaved off.. The front lateral and back medial meniscus was shaved. I also have patella tracking issues which resulted in grade 3 cartilage damage under the patella. Arthritis was shaved down from under the patella. I am a active person. I need a brace that could support me playing lite basketball on the weekends and lite cycling during the week.. I can squat and hop with no pain.
      Which brace is best for my condition and activity level?
    • This brace is a patellofemoral knee brace and designed to help with patella stabilization and patella knee pain.
      This would be a great option for you or you can also take a look at other patellofemoral knee brace options.

  • Jorge Ruiz at 8/26/2015 7:33 PM

    • I suffer from CPPD Calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystal deposition disease! Was wondering if this brace would help me! This condition at times is very painful was hoping maybe this will help as support prior to having an attack!
    • The DonJoy Reaction WEB Knee brace would be an excellent choice for your condition. The web design will help shift the load away from the painful points in the knee to help relieve pain and decrease inflammation.
  • Kimberly at 7/22/2015 7:27 PM
    • Hi, I have a grade 4 chondral defect at the top of my trochlea. Even though the defect was treated with abrasion arthroplasty, I still get pain when I squat down. Could this brace help with my situation? TIA
    • Yes, the DonJoy Reaction WEB Knee Brace will help support, and stabilize the patella and keep it aligned in a neutral position, which should help relieve some of the pain around your patella when doing squats. We do not have a brace to help with a bone deformity, but with the Reaction WEB you should still get some relief and support.
  • Dennis sullivan at 5/31/2015 9:32 AM
    • i have sharp pain in front inside of knee when turning. I play golf get the pain on my back swing. None of the examples mentioned golf. Would this be a good option .i have tried a basic sleeve but it doesn't give enough support.
    • This brace is going to be a step up from a basic knee sleeve and it will help reduce anterior knee pain. This brace can be worn by golfers and should provide good support to the knee.
  • Onnie at 5/6/2015 6:18 PM
    • I have Patellofemoral Syndrome and have two questions about this brace. The first is, will it help with that type of problem, and second, how easy is it to move in this brace? I am involved in multiple activities that require me to bend my knee a lot and/or keep it bent, the knee brace I have is not comfortable for that because it pinches and is not comfortable to keep bent, sometimes difficult. How is this one for mobility?
    • This brace was designed to decrease anterior knee pain caused by Patellofemoral disorders. The brace is very easy to apply and is very flexible and low profile.
  • Megan at 4/29/2015 11:53 AM
    • I dislocated my patella about 5 years ago, my patella now will pop out of place in a sense and cause me a lot of daily pain. I work out in a gym and I am a upcoming professional bowler, will this brace relieve my pain to the patella.
    • Megan
      The Reaction will help with patella dislocation but we do have another brace that works specifically for that problem The Don Joy Tru-Pull Lite is specifically for patellar dislocation. Might work a little better.http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-tru-pull-lite
  • Catherine at 4/24/2015 8:41 AM
    • According to a recent MRI, I've "extensive Pattelofemoral disease" and broad areas of high-grade Chondromalacia lateral (and resulting tracking problems), tendinitis/bursitis, etc. etc. All was fine until I fell on it - I am a 54 year old female but very active in competitive kettlebell lifting/hiking/etc. No actual ligament problems (whew) though I do have pain around most of my knee of course.

      My doctor put me into a TruPull Lite, while it is fine for when I am actually active, it appears to cause problems for when I am less active - such as when I am at the office. If I wear it during the day at the office I get pain/numbness at the back of my knee. I am petite, and have always had problems with sizing - especially if it involves my Q angle.

      My question is this - since I want a second brace to switch out if this need to brace turns out to be longer-term - would the Reaction be a good choice for my less active days - or is it meant for less complex/severe arthritic changes?
    • Catherine
      I agree the Reaction Web Knee Brace would be another brace that you can wear for the problems that you are experiencing. The brace is for those who suffer from anterior knee pain caused by some of the same issues that you have.
  • Jessica at 4/18/2015 2:07 PM
    • I have had surgery to repair my meniscus and also have Plica syndrome. I am looking for a breathable brace that will still give me support. What would you suggest for my type of injury?
    • Yes, the brace is very low profile and will support the knee after the surgery you had. The brace decreases anterior knee pain.
  • Isabella at 4/2/2015 5:26 PM
    • Hello,
      I am a swimmer and i am starting to run. I experience pain in both my knees after doing these sports. Would you say this will be best to use during the sports so i do not feel the pain. Also would you recommend wearing this over jeans or would it not fit?

      Thanks!
    • Isabella
      If you experience pain in the front of your knee then i would reccomend the Reaction Web Knee Brace during your activities. The brace will reduce pain. The brace is to be worn directly on the skin or on the provided sleeve
  • Sarah wilson at 3/20/2015 12:49 PM
    • I had ACL surgery 6 months ago and just got cleared to run track. My doctor gave me a basic sleeve with open patella to run in but I need more support and pain relief. My patella area hurts with jumping, running, sprinting, etc. would this reaction web brace work for me?
    • Sarah
      Yes the Reaction Web Knee Brace would be the right brace for you. The Reaction will absorb those forces on your knee and decrease pain in the fornt of the knee around your kneecap
  • Andrew at 3/10/2015 6:56 AM
    • I'm interested in using this brace for added support while playing Roller Derby, my doctor told me I need a sleeve for added support. I typically get pain on the front of my knee cap and the best way to describe it is the knee crunches. The 2nd thing I am looking for is preventative care because 50% of derby injuries are ligament based with the knee twisting in a way it is not supposed to twist. I am currently using a bulky hinged sleeve that provides good side support and compression. This looks like a lightweight alternative but want to make sure the side supports are strong enough.

      Thanks!!
      -Andrew
    • Andrew
      The Reaction Web Knee Brace is perfect for the pain and crunching you are feeling with your kneecap however the medial and lateral support will be minimal compared to what you are already using. If you are looking for something to prevent an injury to the medial or lateral side of your knee I would suggest a regular hinged knee brace with a patella stabilizer. The Don Joy Performer with hinges may be a better fit for you. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-performer-hinged-patella-knee-brace-neoprene
      The hinges are sewn into the material so an to not be too bulky.
  • Aaron at 2/26/2015 7:27 PM
    • My knee shifts due to my weak muscles on the side of my patella. Would this reaction brace help with keeping my knee sturdy. I play football fyi
      Thanks, Aaron
    • Aaron
      If you kneecap shifts then yes this brace will help keep the kneecap stable and tracking in the correct position.
  • Kim Hernandez at 2/20/2015 9:21 PM
    • I tore my meniscus had surgery on it but most likely will have surgery again until then will this knee brace work. I live in east Texas and it has a lot of hills and I have a bunch of stairs to walk just to get to work. My knee swells, I sit down and turn my knee it pops or I can just stand up and it pops. Will this knee brace work until surgery is done also can you do yoga or running with it?
    • The Reaction will be a good brace if you get pain in the front of your knee when walking and going up and down stairs. The brace is light weight and flexible, easy to wear.
  • Halil at 2/10/2015 7:36 AM
    • I wrestle, which involves a lot of contact with the ground, deep knee bending, and lateral movements, as well as driving off your legs and I have chondromalacia. Would you recommend the reaction brace as a durable one that won't break through practice or would you recommend a different one of your braces?
    • The Reaction Web is a great brace for chondromalacia, however I am not sure it would be the best brace to wear if your a wrestler. The brace may have problems staying on because it is a wrap on. I would suggest the DonJoy Performer Patella Knee Support. The brace is a sleeve and neoprene so it will not get caught up on the mat, like a Reaction might. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-performer-patella-knee-support
  • Eric at 2/5/2015 10:03 AM
    • I do a lot of skiing (alpine), and i get a small amount of pain in my knee, would this help relieve any of the pain while skiing? The pain is mostly medial and at the patella area.
    • Eric
      Yes this brace is designed to decrease anterior knee pain associated with mild OA and patellofemoral problems. This brace may help some of that pain you are feeling. You can also check out our selection of knee braces for skiing.
  • Bailey at 1/28/2015 12:22 PM
    • I do <a href="http://www.betterbraces.com/cheer-and-dance">competitive cheerleading</a> which involves a lot of strain on my knees. I have dislocated both of my knees twice and was wondering if this brace is good for preventing more dislocations and if it is flexible enough to cheer with?
    • This brace does give support to the kneecap but if you have dislocated it before, you may want to try a different brace. The Tru-Pull Lite is specifically for patella dislocation and the brace is short and comfortable. This might be a better choice for you.
  • Rose at 1/3/2015 8:10 AM
    • I have Patella issues due to severe arthritis under my knee cap....basically, I have no cartilage at all under my caps. The rest of my knee joint is good and stable. I am an active 55 year old female who does CrossFit and Olympic weightlifting activities, however squatting is incredibly painful. I was prescribed an J brace and that has helped but it's rather bulky and hot. I'm looking for something that I can wear that helps my Patella femoral pain issues but is more comfortable to wear. Which would be better for me....this web brace or the Tri pull lite?
    • Rose
      This brace would work for the anterior knee pain that you have. It absorbs the forces on the front of the knee and disperses them away decreasing anterior knee pain.
  • Dan at 12/6/2014 10:34 AM
    • Hi, I'm 20 years old and I play football. I have patella tracking issues. Football has caused me so much pain in my knees and I may no longer be able to play because of it. Because my patella alignment is off it has caused damage to my patella. My doctor has brought up patella alignment surgery and I just wondered if this knee brace would help me?
    • Dan
      The Reaction may help with decreasing your knee pain. Other options that will push your kneecap into the correct position are the Don Joy Tru Pull Advanced System or the Lateral J Patella Stabilizer. These braces keep the kneecap tracking in the correct position. Any of these braces might help you with your knee.
  • Phil at 10/16/2014 7:23 AM
    • I have had a total patella dislocation, arthroscopic, as well as knee realignment surgery (back in December 2007). I suffer from swelling and anterior pain. Is this an efficient brace that will help me continue my active life style and prevent some of the pain and swelling or do you recommend another brace?
    • Phil
      Yes, this brace will help reduce anterior knee pain.
  • Glad at 10/16/2014 4:55 AM
    • My orthopedist informed me that my knees don't anatomically track well causing me to have occasional loose knee feeling in addition to swelling and excess fluid after teaching group exercise. I'm looking for tracking support so I can continue to teach group exercise (weight training that includes high reps of moderate to heavy weighted squats and lunges as well as cardio with high impact moves such as tuck jumps and jump kicks). Can the reaction support my knees with these activities?
    • Glad
      The reaction is one option but the Tru-Pull Lite (http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-tru-pull-lite) is specifically for someone who has patella tracking problems. The brace pulls the kneecap into the correct position and holds it there during activity.
  • Kevin at 10/9/2014 10:43 PM
    • Hi I was wondering if I will be able to play to my max ability while wearing the reaction web brace because most braces I've worn hinder my playing ability by not allowing me to move as well. I play soccer and do a lot of shooting and moves so I just wanna know if I can still do all those things with this brace. Thank you!
    • Kevin
      This brace is very low profile compared to hinged knee braces, you will be able to play sports without any restriction.
  • Janelle at 9/29/2014 6:23 PM
    • Hi, I have had 2 acl and a meniscus repair done. Typically I wear my female fource brace on days that are high impact on my knee (jumping and cutting). I was wondering if this would be good for days with running, but no cutting. I still have pain on the lateral and medial sides of my knee after and sometimes during tough workouts. Thanks
    • Janelle
      This brace is typically for someone who has knee pain in the front of their knee, around the kneecap. If your pain is around that area then the Reaction would help with that pain during running. It does not provide medial and lateral support so if you feel that you will need that I would suggest a hinged knee brace such as the Playmaker II.
  • Callie at 9/1/2014 10:35 AM
    • I have dislocated both of my kneecaps in the past and I am looking for a brace that will provide enough support to keep my kneecaps from dislocating again, but I also have arthritis in both of my knees. Preventing my kneecaps from dislocating again is my main concern, but I would also like to find a brace that would help alleviate some arthritis pain. Do you think this brace or one of the Tru-Pull braces be the better choice?
    • Callie
      The Reaction will help the kneecap and mild arthritis. If you have arthritis on one side (medial or lateral) we just came out with the OA Reaction Web Knee Brace that will still give you the support that you need for the patella and it will unload that compartment that has the OA in it. The brace still has the webbing design to take force off the kneecap but now also comes with a hinge that can unload the opposite side of the knee.
  • Gabrielle at 8/26/2014 6:50 AM
    • My daughter has JRA. She has it bad in her knees. Is this the best brace to help her. She is still in school and it hurts for her to walk around the school. I am looking for something to help her.
    • Gabrielle
      If your daughter has pain in the front of her knees this brace could help with that pain. The webbing design absorbs the force on the knee with daily activities and disperses the force though the webbing of the brace to help decrease pain. I think it is worth trying for your daughter.
  • Andy at 8/25/2014 10:13 PM
    • I have trouble jumping off of my right leg. I tore my meniscus 10 years ago and wondering if it is catching up to me. When I jump it sort of feels like bone on bone. I would like to continue to play rec basketball and ease the pain. I currently use a strap under my knee and it helps somewhat .

      Is this brace right for me?
    • This brace has been successful in reducing pain in the front of the knee. It absorbs force place on the front of the knee and disperses it into the webbing to decrease knee pain. I think this would be something for you to try.
  • Melissa at 8/18/2014 8:24 AM
    • I have had lateral, medial repair, an acl injury without repair, joint effusion, history of osteochondral injury tibial plateau, chondromalacia patella... I do moderate sports like p90 and T25, boot camp relays which I recently had to stop... I would like a brace that would allow me to play hard without all the pain ... would this brace be a good option for my workouts ...and I've never used a brace before.
    • This a good brace for those with pain in the front of your knee, but will not protect the ACL at all. So if you do not have any stability issues, just anterior knee pain, then the Reaction is going to help. If you have instability in your knee because of the ACL tear then you would need something a little more supportive such as the Playmaker II knee brace.
  • Ryan Meyers at 8/11/2014 5:55 PM
    • I am actually looking for a brace that will add some extra strength to my knee joint. A couple of months ago I had a tumor removed from my upper thigh which required the Dr to have to remove a good deal of my quadriceps muscles. Vastus intermedius completley removed and partial removal of vastus laterallis and rectus femoris. Needless to say my upper leg is now very weak. I am a bowler and am looking for something that will allow me to squat down a little more without my knee buckling due to lack of strength. I'm thinking something with a flexion stop would be best but kind of think the Reaction brace looks like it could help. Any thoughts?
    • Ryan
      The Reaction will not give you enough support for that leg. I would suggest the Playmaker II knee brace. It has bilateral hinges for medial and lateral support as well as our 4 point strapping system that will help protect the ACL and PCL in the knee. It comes with stops that you can install in your brace that can limit flexion to help keep you from buckling.
  • Tim at 8/6/2014 1:13 PM
    • I have recently had 2 surgeries on the same knee, and starting to have issues with stiffness and walking. Especially early morning when waking up and when the weather changes. What would be the best brace to wear?
    • This brace is best for those who have anterior knee pain. It absorbs force on the front of the knee and disperses the force into the webbing of the brace which decreases pain in the front of the knee. If you are having anterior knee pain this brace may help
  • Chris at 8/6/2014 5:54 AM
    • Hello,

      I have bad osteoarthritis in my knees from many years of sports and construction work. My doctor said I would/should consider knee replacement. He also gave me the option of having hyaluronan injections, which I opted for. While the injections worked and did allow me to freely walk up stairs, the pain is slowly returning. I know this is due to me weightlifting ( I squat 400lbs rep and leg press 1100lb rep ). My questions are, is this brace a good option for lifters to use while lifting? Is this a good brace for my knee overall outside the gym? The pain is mostly when the knee passes a 90* angle ( getting up off the couch ). Thank you.
    • Chris
      If you need a knee replacement, this brace may not be enough support for your knee. This brace is for those suffering from anterior knee pain and mild arthritis. If you need surgery you most likely have severe arthritis. Now if you have pain in the front of your knee the Reaction may help while you are lifting, but if your pain is on one side of the joint then you may need a more involved knee brace specific for arthritis. Check out our selection of arthritis knee braces.
  • Bob Stoner at 8/3/2014 9:47 AM
    • I was interested in the brace for my son who plays offensive line. Was wondering about the sleeve getting mixed reviews that the brace keeps sliding down is there additional or alternative sleeve that can used. Also concerns about the bottom strap that keeps coming on undone. (from reviews read)
      I am currently having a issue with sizing below the knee measures 18" and upper 23". Also currently using shock doc brace but with issues of sizing concerns about fit and ripping the brace apart when putting it on.



    • Bob
      Most of the complaints about the sleeve slipping have been resolved with a new sleeve that has bigger pieces of silicone at the top . The issues with the straps have been resolved, the braces have different velcro and the straps can be velcroed on top of themselves for better fit. The size would be the XL/XXL.
  • chris at 7/27/2014 5:33 PM
    • Hi, I am 34 years old and I have no ACL in my left knee (The PCL and MCL were both replaced with an allograft , the ACL was retorn) with some mild arthritis. I currently have the Donjoy Defiance but I never wear it because it is very uncomfortable and constantly slides down my leg. My activities are very limited and include walking on the treadmill, swimming and going up and down stairs in my house. The pain has been minor and controlled with cortisone injections but my knee buckles sometimes when going up the stairs. Would this brace be suitable for my condition? Thanks
    • Chris
      First if your Defiance does not fit correctly you may need to be re-sized for the brace, remakes can be done for a $300 charge instead of getting a brand new brace. The Reaction Web knee is most likely not the best choice if you are not going to wear your Defiance. I would suggest the DonJoy Playmaker II. It has sufficient support for the activities that you are doing.

    • I have chondromalacia, patella tracking issues and have dislocated my kneecap twice in the last few years which also has given me patella tendinitis... Would this be the best brace for me or is there something better out there that I should try? I am an active weight lifter and active running in multiple sports and don't like to be on the sideline.
    • Chadd
      This is a good brace for anterior knee pain associated with chondromalacia and patellar tendonitis. You may want to go a different brace because of the dislocations. Take a look at the Tru-Pull Advanced System and the Tru-Pull Lite. These braces will keep the kneecap tracking correctly and help to prevent any further dislocations. The Lite is a smaller lower profile version of the Advanced system.

    • I had ACL repair surgery about a year ago. I am having discomfort and pain on the inside of my knee when I am squatting. (Olympic weightlifting) Do you have a brace that will help with those things? BTW - I squat below parallel. Thanks!
    • Jen
      This knee brace could help with this pain you are having. It is not uncommon to have patellofemoral pain after an ACL surgery especially when putting such a great load on the knee by squatting beyond 90 degrees. This brace helps to absorb that load and transfer it into the webbing to take pain away.
  • Alain at 7/5/2014 11:24 PM
    • Hi, I've been diagnosed with having Chondromalacia patella and have some pain in the back of my knee when I squat. I am currently doing stretching and strengthening exercises. I mainly play volleyball 2 times a week and some basketball and soccer. I was wondering if this is the right brace for me or could you recommend another which would be better. Thanks
    • This is a great brace for those who suffer from Chondromalacia. The brace absorbs the force put on the kneecap during activity and disperses it within the webbing to help alleviate pain.
  • Mikey at 7/2/2014 9:49 PM
    • I have this knee brace and it broke 4 times and all i do is play basketball with it. The plastic part to hold the straps to make it tight always snap. What other brace do you recommend?
    • Mikey
      The DonJoy Performer Patella Knee Support is a good alternative if you are having pain around the kneecap. The brace has a buttress that is sewn into the brace to help stabilize the patella. The Tru-Pull Lite is a good brace for keeping your knecap tracking in the correct position: http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-performer-patella-knee-support
  • Mike at 6/29/2014 2:28 PM
    • I have had two arthroscopes, one ACL reconstruction and am awaiting another arthroscope (once I get an MRI done, i'm 99% sure it's another meniscus tear). My current injury is a medial meniscus tear and I am looking for a brace that is versatile for running, jumping, lifting, hiking, walking, etc. Will this brace be able to support me?
    • Mike
      This knee brace will be a good choice for a meniscus tear. It decreases anterior knee pain by absorbing the forces on the knee and dispersing them into the webbing of the brace. You can do all of your activities in the brace.
  • T Schatz at 6/24/2014 10:51 AM
    • My daughter plays volleyball, and uses a WEB knee brace as prescribed by her doctor, for patella and anterior pain in the knee (I don't recall the medical terms), but the brace works wonderfully for her. I'm just wondering if there's a knee pad made to be worn over it. The rubber obviously doesn't slide on the floor which causes more knee pain, and a typical knee pad binds with the brace and pinches her skin. I'm thinking something that is more open on the back, high and low straps perhaps? Any suggestions?
    • Im sure a traditional volleyball kneepad would fit over the brace in a bigger size. Another option is our DonJoy Sports Knee Pad. It is universal in size and wraps around the knee.
  • Amber Lane at 6/23/2014 9:35 AM
    • Hello- I am a marathoner who has OA. I recently had arthroscopic surgery to remove floating bodies from my knee. I recovered well for about 6 weeks with no pain in my knee. Then I came back too quick and ran a half marathon and I've had medial knee pain ever since. I am able to run very little with more pain now than I had 6 weeks out of surgery. My Orthoepic surgeon tells me I have arthritis, which I understand. However, I was running pain free before my half marathon. I am wondering if this knee brace will relieve medial knee pain while running? I've read a lot of these questions and I am wondering what you're considering moderate OA? I am very interested and want to try this brace to see if it will relive my pain. Before arthroscopic surgery my ortho did think I might need a lateral release, but once he got in there he said He didn't think I needed it. Plead help!
    • Amber
      This brace is usually for those with anterior knee pain associated with the kneecap. It could be that your medial pain is from your kneecap since the doctor was thinking of doing a lateral release. The brace might help relieve your pain. Moderate arthritis is narrowing of the joint space but the bones are not touching yet. There is little cartilage on the bone but some still remains. Once that cartilage is gone then you have bone-on bone severe arthritis and there is no space between the bones. I have had some customers who have had moderate to severe arthritis and they have had some relief with this brace so it may help you. We do have a 90 money back guarantee, so if you are not satisfied with the brace you may return it for full credit within 90 days of purchasing it.
  • Phil Turner at 5/31/2014 10:55 PM
    • I am a strong skier and retired pro ski patroller 69 years old, I still have good joint space between the 2 bones but bone to bone femer to knee cap. I am getting some arthritis in the left knee.Lots of pain now skiing under the knee cap and when getting up from sitting position and walking down stairs. Would the reaction brace help this pain, especially skiing? Thanks
    • Phil
      This would be a good brace for you to use to help with that pain under your kneecap. The brace was design for someone like you in mind, to help absorb the shock that your knee gets and transmit the force throughout the muscles of the leg instead of right at your kneecap. We also have a variety of other braces specific to skiing that may help you continue to stay on the slopes if you want more options.
  • Lavita at 5/12/2014 7:55 PM
    • I have broken my patella and am in need of a brace. It's 4 weeks post injury and doctor gave no recommendations regarding type. This one looks appropriate for my knee. I can't have anything touch it as it is still tender, bruised, swollen and painful. Is this the correct brace for me? How quick is shipping?
    • Thank you for your question. Yes, this Reaction WEB brace would be appropriate.
  • Brian at 4/27/2014 10:49 AM
    • I have lateral knee pain, and stiffness after running or walking. I have a complex lateral meniscus tear, and also, ITBS. What would be the best brace for me? I gather that since I have no anterior knee pain, this brace would NOT be a good choice.
    • The Reaction may not be the best choice. For the ITB syndrome a knee strap could help such as the DonJoy Cross Strap. But the ITB could be caused by abnormal patella tracking, so you could try the Lateral J Patella Knee Brace. The brace has a lateral buttress around the knee and a strap to pull the kneecap into the correct position. You can also get the brace with hinges to help with general stabilization of the knee.
  • Al at 4/17/2014 9:09 AM
    • I have had a knee replacement and my new knee skis well. I am wondering if this brace might help make the replacement last longer. I currently do not use a brace of any kind when I ski.
    • Al
      The Reaction Knee Brace is indicated for those who suffer from anterior knee pain. It is used by a lot of skiers for that reason. We do have rigid knee braces that will protect the knee from injury while skiing but no brace will make a knee replacement last longer.
  • Howard at 3/23/2014 12:10 PM
    • I bowl 3 times a week. I have had my left knee replaced and my right knee needs it. I need to stabilize my knee when I bowl. I don't think I need to protect it from further injury. I just need to keep pressure on both knees, it relieves the pain in the right knee and the "loose" feeling in the bionic knee. Is the reaction brace a good solution for my problems?
    • Howard
      If you feel like you have pain in the front of your knee when bowling, then this would be a good brace for you. If you feel your knee is unstable as a whole, I would suggest the DonJoy Economy Hinged Knee Brace: http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-economy-hinged-knee The bilateral hinges will give your knee the much needed support.
  • Deb at 3/10/2014 4:26 PM
    • Have had torn meniscus repair in left knee dow.n twice, I am a 60 year old female who started running about 4 years ago and got up to the half marathon distance. Hoping to continue again but the doc says I am almost bone on bone. Before the surgery he sad I should be back to running in about 6 weeks after surgery, then it was 2 months, then 3 months, now it is a well we can try a few things up to a knee replacement, (I am not ready for this). He did not suggest a knee brace of any sort. He suggests swimming and cycling, I like to cycle and hate swimming. I want to run. What would you suggest?

      Thanks
    • Thank You for your question. If most of your pain is centered around the knee cap and in the area the Reaction WEB brace covers, this would be a great brace for you. If the knee pain is more medial/lateral (on the sides) or deep inside the knee joint you may look at the DonJoy Deluxe Hinged Knee or the DonJoy economy Hinged Knee.
  • Fed at 3/8/2014 8:56 PM
    • hi
      i have cartilage lose due to a meniscus injury not treated properly, i practice wakeboard and although i dont feel too much pain, sometimes i feel pain on the back of my knee... would this brace help for my situation and is it good for wakeboarding? had a cti in the past but wasnt a very good experience...
      what would you recommend? thank you!
    • Fed
      The Reaction knee brace is a good substitution for a knee sleeve, which is what I would reccomend for womeone with a meniscus injury. The Reaction will not hlp the pain in the back of your knee though. this brace is indicated for those who have anterior knee pain. The pain you experience behind your knee could be the meniscus, but this brace would still be better than a regular sleeve. and better in the water
  • Dale at 3/2/2014 9:45 PM
  • Bill at 3/2/2014 2:19 PM
    • I had a TKR over two years ago. Have seen 9 different Doctors about the continuing pain and stiffness in the knee but no one can tell me what is wrong. Have had every test that can be done any none of them can see anything wrong with the knee replacement nor the soft tissue. I wear a compression brace that is I would say mild support and it helps. I am 62 and love to walk and play golf but have a little difficulty doing both because of the pain. Would you suggest one of your braces? Hurst when I twist it. Thanks
    • Bill
      If wearing a sleeve helps relieve your pain a little , the Reaction May help more. It is indicated for those that suffer from anterior knee pain and is a better substitute than a sleeve
  • Dennis Freeze at 2/13/2014 12:42 AM
    • I suffered a complete quadriceps rupture, with surgical reattachment. I have no lateral instability, but the knee wants to buckle (suddenly) occasionally. My doctor thinks it's from slow-healing nerve damage. Other than the buckling, my knee is pretty strong except end-range stuff (still can't walk down stairs properly).

      I need to start exercising again, and I'm concerned that the buckling could happen at the wrong time while moving. It's always a momentary thing, and then it catches hold again. I'm afraid if I'm moving around more, I might not be able to catch myself in time.

      Will this brace work? Will the hinges slow down any sudden buckling of the knee?
    • Dennis
      The hinges on this brace are not that supportive. If you have pain in the front of your knee while walking up and down stairs this brace can help decrease that pain. If you would like more stability with hinges I would suggest the Economy hinged knee brace. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-economy-hinged-knee. This brace has metal hinges that would protect better than the Reaction brace
  • Kelli at 2/9/2014 10:13 AM
    • I have chondromalacia due to alignment issues and have very little cartilage in my right knee. I have been very inactive for the past few years due to the pain I feel doing common things like walking and climbing stairs at home and at work and even from sitting. I am looking for a knee brace that I can wear all the time that fits under clothes and is comfortable and will allow me to return to the active lifestyle I used to have before this all became such a huge issue. Will this knee brace help? Or is there a better one that you can recommend?
    • Kelli
      The Reaction knee brace si the brace that i would suggest for the isuues that you are having with your knee. The brace is indicated for thoses with anterior knee pain due to chondromalacia
  • Kyle at 2/8/2014 9:00 PM
    • I work for a company that requires me to do many stairs with added weight (1-45lbs). What brace would be best for preventing the added stress that my knees will be under due to the impact caused by the added weight?
    • Kyle
      The Reaction Knee brace would work well if you get pain going up and down stairs by dispearsing that force on you knee into the elastomeric web of the brace.
  • Stephen at 1/28/2014 1:29 PM
    • Hello,

      I play catcher for my baseball team and my knees have been hurting for as long as i can remember. And I was wondering if this knee brace would be ideal for playing the catcher position e.g. staying in the crouching position for long periods of time, and running a lot.
    • Thank you for your question. This Reaction WEB Knee brace is designed for knee pain in the front of the knee. If your knee pain is on the sides or the back of the knee you may want to consider a sleeve for compression or a hinged knee brace that will offer support to the medial and lateral sides of the knee. If you have questions please feel free to call product support at 888-405-3251.
  • Alisha at 1/19/2014 12:52 PM
    • I dislocated my left about 8 years ago. Ever since when I do activities I notice that it wants to slip occasionally. I will also get occasion pain behind my knee. I am about to start playing indoor soccer and since I am using my legs for kicking and running etc I really feel that I should have a brace for my knee. I am trying to decide which would be the best fit: Reaction, Tru-Pull Lite, or Tru-Pull advanced.

      I have used a variety of knee braces in the past and they always seem too tight on my patella and very uncomfortable.

      Thanks for the help.
    • Hello,

      I recommend the Tru-pull lite for patella dislocations. This brace is 9" in length and has a buttress that sits right up against the patella to prevent dislocations.

      If you would also like a hinge in the brace take a look at the Lateral J Brace. This provides patella support and has the option to add a hinge.

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • Sarah at 1/18/2014 8:05 AM
    • I had a patella subluxation and grade one MCL tear this fall, would this be the best brace for those injuries. 11 years ago I did the same to the other knee requiring surgery to help with the patella tracking, I really don't want to go through that again.
    • Sarah
      The Reaction knee brace is for those who suffer from anterior knee pain associated with patellar tendonitis, and other patellar femoral problems. I would suggest either the Playmaker II with a patellar donut http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-playmaker-ii-knee-brace-1 or the DonJoy Drytex Hinged Air Knee brace http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-drytex-hinged-air-knee-brace
  • tom at 1/12/2014 8:09 AM
    • I have pain in my left knee. I had orthscopic surgery to remove cartilage about 30 years ago. The orthopedic doctor told me the pain is due to severe arthritis, bone-on-bone iritation, and alignment issues (my thigh bone comes in at a slight angle ).

      I am active and can have pain due to being on my feet for long periods of time. I also ski and have pain while skiing and swelling afterwards.

      Would the Reaction WEB Knee brace be a good choice to relieve the pain I'm experiencing?
    • Tom
      You have severe arthritis and the Reaction Knee Brace is not the brace for you. You need to look at either the donJoy Defiance witha OA hinge or the DonJoy OA Adjuster 3
      http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-defiance-iii-custom-knee-brace http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-oa-adjuster-3-knee-brace
      These braces are for moderate to severe OA. It sounds as if you have lateral compartment arthritis, but you should make sure with your physician before purchasing anything.
  • Nick at 1/7/2014 3:16 PM
    • Out of the performer, lateral J, and Reaction knee braces which do you prefer? I plan to play basketball in this brace and recently had surgery on a broken tibia and torn patella tendon. I experience pain in the front of my knee and occasionally to the sides.

      The Reaction Knee Brace is best for your pain.

The issue i have had with braces in the past involve pinching behind the knees and not fitting under my boots or damaging my saddle. I do need a support brace. would this brace work?
    • Lexi
      The Reaction brace should work well for you. It is not made of metal so it should not afect your sadle. There is a opening in the back of the brace so there should not be any irritation behind you leg.
  • SageLenea at 12/19/2013 1:58 PM
    • Hello,
      I torn my MCL about 3 years ago. And re injured it about a year ago. Ever since, I have had a lot of pain, mostly with walking and bending. I usually do better with a generic brace, but it eventually bothers the back of my knee (fabric build up) usually due to squatting. Would this brace be a good option for me?
    • Sagel
      The reaction Knee brace will not help support a knee with a MCL sprain. You need a brace that has metal hinges on the side. We have a variety to choose from and you can get them with a hole in the back of the brace so you will not get the bunching of fabric behinde the knee. The DonJoy Deluxe Hinged Knee is a good brace for you and you can get it with a open popliteal which is the opening in the back of the brace. Let us know if you have any other questions

    • My son is an elite skier and has suffered a bone bruise on the top of the tibia which is taking a long time to heal. He still has issues with impact activities like running and jumping and previously had a long bout of O-S. Would the brace help alleviate some of the impact while he recovers?
    • Stuart
      Thank you for contacting product support. The reaction knee brace is for those who suffer from anterior knee pain cause by patellar problems. I don't think this will help your son. A hinged knee brace would most likely be the best possibly the Deluxe Hinged Knee Brace located here: http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-drytex-neoprene-deluxe-hinged-knee-wraparound-sleeve
      Another option if your son has pain on one side of his knee is the OA Lite http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-oa-lite-osteoarthritis-knee-brace This brace has a single upright hinge located on the opposite side of the painful side. The hinge helps to unload the side that hurts.Take a look and if you have any other questions please let us know

    • Will this brace help with meniscus problems? My son is a goalie on a hockey team and needs to wear the brace underneath his goalie pads with little interference and feel
    • Angel
      Thank you for contacting product support. The Reaction knee brace is ideal for anyone who has anterior knee pain associated with patellofemoral problems, ie. kneecap problems. It is not really indicated for meniscus tears. I would suggest the DonJoy Cartilage Knee Sleeve brace here: http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-cartilage-knee-sleeve-brace This sleeve is indicated for meniscus tears and can easily go under hockey equipment.
  • Allison MacCormick at 11/20/2013 12:48 PM

      My 14 yr old daughter has patella tracking issues and her knee/leg buckles. She was given the Lateral J Patella brace a couple of years ago. It has been great until now. She plays ice hockey and she has a a couple of incidents in the past 2 weeks where her kneecap has moved while she was playing (and wearing the brace). I am looking to see if there is another brace that might provide more support for her. Any suggestions?
      Thank you

      Thank you for contacting product support. For someone who has patella tracking problems, take a look at the Tru-Pull Advanced System Knee Brace http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-tru-pull-advanced-system-1. This brace has a buttress on the outside of the knee that can be pulled across the knee so it allows the wearer to apply as much presser as needed to support the kneecap
  • Gordon Petrie at 11/10/2013 3:43 PM
    • My knee condition is a repaired ACL with medial OA issues (which is my main problem). I have a custom Defiance III and it works great. I am wondering if the reaction will be a more light weight and slimmer design that will help offload the medial cartilage. I am looking for a brace that can better fit under a wetsuit than the defiance III and give me partial protection
    • Gordon
      Thank you for contacting product support. The Reaction knee brace was designed for individuals who suffer from anterior knee pain, patellof femoral disorders and mild OA. It will not support your ACL or unload the medial compartment of your knee. The Defiance is the best brace for you.
  • 2e at 11/1/2013 4:33 PM
    • I am 6 months removed from surgery to repair a ruptured patellar tendon. Recovery has gone very well, I'm back to full range of motion and strength is continuing to return. I do have some pain similar to patellar tendonitis/runners knee when the knee is under resistance at its extremity in flexion, would this knee brace assist in pain reduction and overall movement as I continue to recover and return to an active lifestyle? The rest of the connective tissue in my knee is healthy and I have no instability issues. Thanks.
    • Yes the Reaction knee brace is perfect for someone who is suffereing from anterior knee pain. The web design of the brace is made to disperse the forces on the kneecap into the web of the brace therefore decreasing pain.
  • Skibum at 10/25/2013 10:23 PM
    • I am 53 year old, have been sking all my life. I haven't torn anything in either knee. Would this brace be beneficial for stability and prevention for an advanced skier in all terrains. My concern is primarily moguel terrain. I do have slight soreness after long sessions. I am concerned about twisting the knee joint since i am no longer a young pup.
    • This brace is the ideal brace for anyone who suffers from general anterior knee pain. If is light wieght and flexible which makes it a great brace for skiers. The brace does have a hinge so it will give mild protection to the inside and outsode of the knee. This is not made for protection of the major ligament of the knee, if you are looking for something like that you would need to look at one of our hinged knee braces such as the Deluxe Hinged Knee Brace: http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-drytex-neoprene-deluxe-hinged-knee-wraparound-sleeve If you have any other question please do not hesitate to ask us

    • Aurie
      The Reaction Knee Brace is for people who suffer from anterior knee pain and need support around the kneecap. It does not however protect the ACL. The Playmaker II with the donut pad will protect the ACL and give support to your kneecap. Take a look at it on our retail website: http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-playmaker-ii-knee-brace-1

      I want to prevent reinjury during the recovery period, and support activity beyond the recovery period.

      I'm looking at the Reaction and the Playmaker II - any advice?
    • Steve
      Thank you for contacting product support. The Playmaker II would be the better choice for all of the conditions that you listed. It has both medial and lateral suppport for your MCL sprain and it can come with a patellar dohnut which will help with the patelofemoral issues that you have. If you have any other questions don't hesitate to contact us.
  • Brian at 10/11/2013 8:45 PM
    • I see that this brace is okay for football and basketball but is it okay to wear for baseball? My son currently wears the pull through lite but this one looks like it would be better. Thanks in advance.
    • Brian
      Thank you for contacting product support. The Reaction Knee Brace can be worn for any sport for anyone who suffers from anterior knee pain. Is is not a bulky brace so it should fit under your sons baseball uniform easily. The differences between the Reaction and the Tru-Pull Lite is that if your son has a problem with his knee dislocating or feeling like it "pops" out", the Tru-Pull is a good brace for him but if he just has general knee pain around his kneecap then I would go with the Reaction. I hope that helps
  • andy beck at 10/1/2013 4:43 PM
    • I have been diagnosed with patella femoral syndrome, and I only get <a href="/cycling-and-biking">pain when I am cycling</a>. Would the reaction brace be a good brace for a cyclist?
    • Hi Andy
      Yes the Reaction Knee Brace would be a good fit for you and the diagnosis you received from your health care provider. The Reaction Knee brace reduces patellofemoral knee pain by dispersing energy across the knee. Its extremely comfortable to wear because of the mesh backing and the web design, and should not hinder you in your cycling. Make sure you measure your leg 6 inches above your kneecap to get the perfect fit. If you have any other questions do not hesitate to contact us, and thank you for contacting product support.

  • Todd at 9/4/2013 3:57 PM
    • I am looking to start running more and training for marathon. I have trouble with the dislocation of my patella on my right knee when running. I've been told by my doctors the reason is cause the muscle or ligaments that pull my knee cap into the left are weak and don't work like they are suppose to. I need the lightest and most durable knee brace for my knee so I can start really training for the marathon. Would the reaction knee brace work for me or are there better options?
    • The Reaction is an excellent knee brace that gives more support to the Patella the more movement you have, as you bend deeper the web design gives more support to tyhe knee cap tracking correctly.

    • Hi! I I wrenched my knee quite a while back, eventually had arthroscopic surgery. When I exert a great effort like lunges, jumping jacks, side to side moves and trying to run at full speed my knee buckles. I can only run at about 70% capacity without any issue. I would like to be able to do cross fit training. I don't seem to have issues with certain leg exercises like the squat and leg presses but leg extensions for that knee causes great strain and is at about 50 % capacity of that of my good knee. What knee brace would best suit me?

    • I am planning to buy the fullfource brace as i tore my acl and <a href="http://www.betterbraces.com/knee-injuries/meniscus-tear">meniscus</a>. however, i do have some pain around my shin and patellar. Is it possible to add the reaction to my fullfource brace? or do i have to wear one or the other?

    • We do not have an attachment that can be added to the FullFource. I recommend an ACL Brace for your ACL Injury. I also recommend speaking to your Physician about the other symptoms you are having, they could be related to your previous injury, surgery, etc.

    • My son has Sinding-Larsen-Johansson Syndrome. Would this brace provide pain relief or would you make another recommendation?
    • Hello, Peter -

      The DonJoy Reaction can provide mild pain relief and support for your son. It will help disperse the shock and stress put on the knee joint. However, we do not have a brace specifically designed for his syndrome.

      If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our product specialists at 888-405-3251.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    • I have plica syndrome and have had surgery to remove the tissue in one of my knees. I currently wear a bulkier brace and am about to start college soccer. Would this brace fit with my injury and my level of play?
    • The Reaction Knee Brace is used to help the Pateklla track through the knee's range of motion in a natural fashion.

    • i have been diagnosed with patella femoral syndrome in both knees. Supposedly no arthritis at age 59 per doctor review of X-RAY. Been taping, doing therapy for 7 weeks with PT supervision. I play 6
      hours of singles tennis every week . Pain level has deminished 50% since therapy but is definitely not gone. Still feel it up and down stairs, sitting in a restaurant. What brace do you perscribe to help me and why?
    • This brace would be appropriate for you and your condition and activity level.

    • My son plays high school basketball and he has been diagnosed by with patella instability which causes him a lot of pain. I am looking for a brace for both of his knees which will help his pain. What brace would you recommend.

      Thanks,
      Scott Franklin
    • The Reaction knee brace would be appropriate for your son or the DonJoy Tru-Pull Lite. Both knee braces will help with patellar instability problems. The Reaction is also designed to distribute shock and force around the knee away from the painful areas. He might find a
      bit more relief while wearing the Reaction compared to the Tru-Pul Lite.

    • I am 13 years old and play all sports. Track season now and summer I play a little softball and volleyball. I have Ogsgood-schalauters in my knee and was told I had arthiritis in my knee. I hurt my knee during the 200 sprint relay about a week ago and is giving me excrutiating pain. Would this be a good brace to have for all sports? Is it easy to run in? Light weight?
    • Yes the Donjoy Reaction Knee Brace would be recommended for your condition and activity level.
  • Cody at 2/17/2012 7:06 PM
    • Hi, I am 12 years old with Osgood shlatter and play lacrosse and football and was wondering if this brace would work for a contact sport?
    • Yes the Donjoy Reaction knee brace would be recommended for your condition and athletics.

    • I am 48 year old female and walk 30 minutes a day. I used to run, but knee pain has limited me to walking or other non-weight bearing exercise. I have been using Hypafix and Leukotape to correct a patella tracking issue. This has been very helpful, but I was looking for something more long term. Would you recommend the Lateral J or the Reaction? Thank you!
    • The Reaction Knee Brace would be recommended for your
      condition and activity level.

    • I am a male currently on a professional stunt team (like collegiate cheerleading) and a competitive cheerleading team where I do a lot of stunting (tossing and holding one female standing in my hands over my head) and tumbling. I have had my ACL reconstruction once and scoped twice (meniscus tears). I have no stability issues in either knee, but both knees (
      specifically above and below the knee cap) have pain during and after these activities, patellar tendinitis, and osteoarthritis. Patella straps help some, but I have to wear one above and below the knee cap and add tape to get more coverage in both areas...this looks like it would provide plenty of pressure all around the knee (which is pretty much what I do with all the tape). I know I will never be pain free but will this help relieve some of that pain?
    • Yes the Donjoy Reaction Knee Brace would be recommended for you with your condition and activity levels.
  • Cindy at 8/10/2011 1:44 PM
    • I am now wearing the OA Adjuster brace, and have been for two years. I have osteoarthritic in my right knee. Will the progressive pain relief brace help me better with the pain I am still having when I move around.
    • If you are still having pain and are already in an offloader this may not give the most relief for you. It may help some with the shock absorption, but will not offload any area.
  • Mom at 8/10/2011 10:05 AM
    • My daughter dislocated her patella playing volleyball. The ortho has recommended this brace. The players usually wear their kneepads just below the patella to help them slide when hitting the floor. The webbing on the front looks like it would prevent sliding, and maybe cause more injury? Would she be able to wear a kneepad over the brace? What's the best fix for volleyball?
    • Yes, I would advice her to wear a pad over the webbing. The webbing will prevent her from
      sliding. Another good brace for dislocations is our Tru-Pull Lite.
  • Don at 4/21/2011 9:08 AM
    • My daughter has had an ACL replacement and is now suffering from pain due to what the doctors are calling runners knee, she plays soccer on her high school team and is very active
      She would need something that would allow her to run but still offer some support
      Is this the correct brace for that??
      Thanks,
      Don

    • Yes, the reaction brace would be good for that condition. If she ends up thinking it's too much brace, you can try the Donjoy Cross Strap as well.

Great knee brace, but the Velcro wears out after about one month of frequent use.

Great brace when a heavier brace can't be brought along

Reviewed by:

For mountain trail hiking, I usually wear a heavier armor knee brace due to meniscus damage and arthroscopy some years ago. But the heavy brace, as good as it is, was too bulky to take along during recent travel when luggage space was limited. So I bought the Reaction Web Knee Brace, knowing it would pack smaller and hoping it would provide enough support and protection during a couple of weeks hiking steep Himalayan trails. The Reaction Web brace did the job. Gave me excellent stability, pain free during long hours of hiking day after day. Once I had the brace on I rarely felt any need to readjust the velcro tightening straps. Back home I've found in hot weather I prefer to wear this brace without the sleeve, but when I do the straps feel somewhat uncomfortable against my skin. With the sleeve, perfectly comfortable. This is just a personal preference, and I'm guessing for other folks this will be just as comfortable with or without the sleeve. Altogether, really glad I have this brace. Packs small and light, gives great support for some fairly demanding and rugged use, and a reasonable price.

Not quite the right fit for my frame.

Reviewed by:
Quality
The brace fits a little oddly for me. I'm 5'6", 112 pounds. I ordered the correct size and did confirm it with the company afterwards. The problems I have are that my kneecap apparently is too "bony" - it does not fit the middle opening well. The middle hole is not quite large enough for my entire kneecap, but too large for my kneecap not to try to push through it. It creates an awkward fit that actually pushes directly on the most painful part of my runner's knee injury (just above the kneecap towards the quad). Also the bottom plastic digs into my shin. I have to wear extra padding under that so that it doesn't bruise my leg. The brace does what it should, and with the sleeve on the knee cap hole isn't quite as big a problem, but it's just not as comfortable as I need it to be for my daily use.

Great brace but flawed because the velcro wears out quickly

Reviewed by:
Quality
I've had knee problems my whole adult life and after 3 knee surgeries, I need a total knee replacement on my right knee and my left is not too far behind. I've tried alot of different braces and this one by far is my favorite. However, like everyone else, the velcro sticking after just a few months is an issue. I've bought 3 of these braces (that's $300!) because of the velcro wearing out and only just found out, you can call and buy velcro strip attachments for $10 to help remedy the issue. However, when the backing is worn out, the velcro strips won't stick so they're useless. I hope they come up with a better solution or start providing free replacements for a year with every purchase of the entire back part (containing the velcro and padding) of the brace.

This is hands down the best knee product I have used and allows me to maintain an active lifestyle without pain.

Reviewed by:

This is a great product! I had been receiving knee injections to ward off arthritic pain and allow me to adhere to a walking regimen that typically walk 25-30 miles a week. The injections stopped working and the brace I have used for the last three years has not been so effective. I would like to report that this brace allows me to walk at a great pace and cover the miles I want to with minimal discomfort in my knee. Since I have been using it, I never have to take a day off for my knee to recover and it really allows me to maintain the active lifestyle I have always had, even now in my 60s!

Bad feeling about brace for long term

Best brace I've purchased for Patellar Tendonitis, but the velcro is HORRIBLE. Ive had the brace for about 30-40 days, I only use it for daily, minor activities and walking. Completely takes the pressure off of the tendon, but the velcro is way below average, not good considering its $100.

Between sizes on the measurements? Go with the smaller size.

Reviewed by:
Quality
Upon reading reviews from people and answers to questions from the company, I proceeded to order the XL because many people were saying that one should order a size up from what you usually would, which is what I did. However, this brace is too big and I am having to return it. I would suggest to someone that finds that they are somewhat between sizes like I was when I measured my knee to go with the smaller size and start from there. Otherwise it looks like a great product. Here is hoping the smaller size is better!
