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!

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.

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.

I began my journey with DJO Global with the Defiance brace. The Defiance brace brought me strength, confidence and support. I was wearing the Defiance brace to help me recover from ACL and meniscus repair surgery. With the Defiance brace I felt I could run father, harder and with more confidence.

This DonJoy knee brace is indeed a joy. It instills a sense of confidence. Going up stairs is no longer a major undertaking, and bending to do a little gardening is also much easier. I highly recommend the DonJoy OA REACTION WEB to anyone suffering from arthritis.

I have always wanted to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and decided this was the year. I spent multiple months training and preparing to summit the "Roof of Africa" when I tore my medial meniscus just weeks before realizing my dream. The MRI also showed I have grade 3 degeneration of the cartilage in my right knee, this was a result of surgery on my ACL&MCL 20 years ago. Needless to say, I was in shock about the diagnosis. I spoke with my orthopedist and he recommended I speak with a DonJoy representative about the situation.

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.

DonJoy has provided relief and stability for me for over a decade now, and I can honestly say it is the best product on the market and the quality is superior. My DonJoy knee brace and I were inseparable after five knee surgeries to repair ACL and meniscus tears during my high school years.

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.
