Patient Testimonial - OA Defiance - Mike Giere

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

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

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.

— Jennifer Foley

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 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.

— Emily Fair

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

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 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.

— James Bullion

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!!!
