Re: Anyone with experience of bracing?
My son Nicol has had a brace for 2 years and has continued with his karate during this time, even competing in a world championship overseas, he just takes it off to train. The first two weeks were really bad tbh, but after that, once he was in it for 20 hours, he adapted to it very quickly as it helped so much with his pain. We have been on holiday with it too. With his clothes on, you can't see it, especially if he is wearing school uniform. It has been a positive experience for him as it has allowed him to grow before having his operation (he has a growth deficiency problem), which was a major issue for him. His was done with a plaster cast and he is on to his second one. Hope this helps. XX
