A day in the life of Jim Robinson

I was devastated when I tore my ACL last Winter playing basketball. I underwent surgery in mid March 2016 and then started the long 6 month rehab. My true love is softball and my high school season started before I was released, but with the help of my athletic trainer and the titanium brace I was able to slip right back into my starting catcher position on our varsity team. I was honored to be chosen for first team all districts and all region post season. We ended the season in the Quarterfinals. Thanks to my DonJoy brace I was able to go right back to what I love.

Hey wanted to give you feedback. I am a walking ad for DonJoy! I've been to 3 elite lacrosse tournaments and I wear the Trizone cuz I walk and stand all day. I've had a handful of people at each one ask about it!

I've been wearing the reaction one too when I run.

Everyone that asks me I point them to your site. Anything else I can do to get a better word out there. I really have had a lot of people ask. You know we only "hang" with the sporty over 40 and they all have knee probs!!!

— Heather Hughes Lalla

Hi! My name is Emily, and I want to share with you my Donjoy story!

I have a pretty unique story, and my Donjoy ACL braces play a vital role. Unlike sports such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, or skiing; my sport isn't one where your brand is yet represented by an athlete or even recognized. But nonetheless, I trust Donjoy's ACL braces to allow me to confidently continue in my favorite extreme sport in the whole world. Skydiving.

— Emily Brooks

I just wanted to thank you all very much. I served four years in the USMC in the infantry, and I completed 2 combat tours (Iraq and Afghanistan.) While in Afghanistan our constant patrols and strenuous missions took a tool on my knee. I got out in 2011 and the VA was quick to operate on my knee. However, it only made my pain worse. I've suffered with severe pain and limited activity for 3 years. I'm thankful to now be able to keep up with my children and their active lifestyles.

— Alex Sitorius

I have had two major injuries during my career—both ACL tears. There is a lot of pressure inside and outside of schools and organizations to recover quickly, which I appreciate, but it’s up to young athletes, parents and coaches to take steps to recover safely and guard against injury and re-injury. This will only allow for a stronger, better return to sport in the long run.

— Megan Rapinoe

Competitive equestrian here. This past winter I spun my ankle while competing in my other passion (ski racing) and managed to do a high sprain and ATF sprain on the same ankle, as well as tendon damage. My therapist, Justin Lewis RMT, recommended a DonJoy brace to help me through recovery and I'm impressed.

— Katie

Do love this brace. I have worn TriZone for 3 races and won my age group in each race. My knee is fine, no problems, it’s the best brace I’ve ever had.

— Robert Heins

I've had my DonJoy for about 10 years due to some medial meniscus issues. It has always brought immediate relief as soon as I put it on but I learned just how strong it was this week when I fell off a scooter while wearing my brace in Panama. I was wearing my brace as I always do on long-walking days (thankfully) and as I crashed into my left leg, the one with the DonJoy, the brace almost completely protected my entire leg of injury. I have one scratch on the part of my knee that wasn't covered but that's it!

— Alissa Heim

I tore my ACL last year during an 8th grade basketball game for my club team, The Panthers. A year later, I got my DonJoy knee brace and made both the JV and Varsity team at my high school as a freshman! My brace gives me the confidence and support I need to play my best game. I named my brace "Joy" and just like my rep told me, I can't imagine playing without her. I'm playing soccer in the Spring and know my brace will give me the extra confidence I need to make the varsity team! Thank you for making a brace that is both functional and comfortable.
