There are various forms of thigh muscle support braces available at the stores. The most common mistake that most elderly individuals do in times of pain at the thighs is to just pick an over the counter brace without a doctor consult and wear these too-tight compression braces leading to more pain. Choosing the right thigh brace is crucial because otherwise, the chance of injury on the worn out femur and thigh muscles is extremely high. Some of the best types of thigh braces that have been recommended by doctors are:
- Neoprene thigh support: Priced at just about $45, this form of thigh brace is best suited for those who require mild support for the quadriceps, groin, and simple hamstring injuries.

- Bauerfeind MyoTrain thigh support: This unique knee brace is priced at around $200, and is apt for controlling the toning of muscles as well as to prevent the recurrence of injuries during recuperation of the muscles.
