No brace but exercis: If you can you need to do quadriceps exercises to both strengthen your thigh muscles to support you when you can stand and walk fractures take 6 weeks to heal. Be certain to do range of motion to maintain motion in the hips and ankles and feet as well as your knees. This will avoid contractures.

Cti brace: This brace might be helpful just for support if you have a broken bone but it is usually used for people who have a torn acl ligament.
