Good morning @Jadelady73
On reading your post, you are querying how do others cope with Knee Locking. Below is a link to the Versus Arthritis web site which discusses this :
Versus Arthritis Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee | Knee pain
I hope this is helpful to you and will explain the symptom and why it occurs to you.
Other members of the forum may have experienced this and may be able to tell you about how they cope with it.
with best wishes
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!
