    A knee brace may work against the exercises by not letting you use your knee naturally , I.e. weakened through little use? The same thing happens with other braces, was yours recommended by the doctor? Just a thought. If it’s a recommended one and NHS supplied one then they will have told you how to cope. Weight lose will certainly help as long as you haven’t lost muscle.

    its a grin, honest!
