My New Knee Brace is GREAT!

by You Be Healthy

I’ve been out kite surfing since Month 2 ‘post knee operation’ with the help of my new knee brace!  At Month 3, I ventured out to the mountain bike trails where my trusty brace passed its test with flying colors.  I have a Generation II brace for my other leg and used it after I [...]

I haven’t posted on my knee surgery rehab status in the last few weeks.  So here’s the latest update! My rehab is still accelerated by at least 1.5 months and I’m doing my various natural remedies, which I’ve written about in previous posts.  I am no longer going to physio as I was at the [...]

I am just in from my 3rd single track mountain bike ride post knee operation and I am ‘flying high’!  Nothing beats being outdoors in the forest on fun, ‘shwoopy’ single track trails.  It really is exhilarating!

My fantastic massage therapist, Andre, advised me to buy Traumeel, a homeopathic cream, which would help with swelling after my ACL Knee surgery.  He always has great tips so I knew that I needed to find this cream ASAP.  I immediately went out and picked up a tube of ‘Traumeel’, made in Germany, and started [...]

My knee operation recovery is still going perfectly and about a month ahead of schedule!  I did my first hike this weekend at 25 days post surgery – very exciting!  It was great for the mind to get out in nature – my favorite place to be.  And if the Mind is happy, the Body [...]

My knee has had its fair share of icing the last few months.  I borrowed a friend’s cryo cuff for my post-surgery and it did the job.  It is a cooler with a cuff that wraps around the injured area, such as the knee.  You add water/ice to the cooler which cools the ‘cuff’.  The [...]
