I am a runner and I hurt my knee 3 years ago. I have been buying and trying all kinds of knee braces from pharmacies, sports stores, and even doctor's office, I ended up with a big pile of junks - none of them really worked or lasted. I complained to my doctor. He then wrote down on Rx a place to go: ""Allcare"" in Bellevue. My doctor said that's the only place you need to go.
My boyfriend and I went and found Allcare in Bellevue (they are in a small shopping center next to Wholefoods, just across street from Overlake Hospital). We went in, showed the lady works there my doctor wrote for me. She quickly pulled two braces off a big shelf (they have all kinds of braces). She fitted on me, then let me walk around and bend knee to feel it - bingo! I knew within a few seconds it's the right one! My boyfriend and I were surprised by how quick and easy to finally get it right, and we were so impressed by the fine quality of the product - you just never saw something that nice and that fine in regular pharmacy or even high end specialty sports stores. My new knee brace looks great, it's so cool and trendy, it has (or I have) attracted so much attention from my running mates since I got this new ""fashion"" piece. I am very happy with it.
If you ever need high quality sports braces, don't need to waste time drive around, Allcare is THE PLACE TO GO, just like my doctor said. I will tell my doctor that he is right!
Pros: best selection and best quality
Cons: I have to pay ;-))
