Rehabilitation After a Kneecap Dislocation

Shares

If you’ve been following my blog this summer, you likely know that it’s been a whirlwind of events for me. The summer started off quite promising with sun, fun, and lots of planned activities. Not only was I excited to be doing things with the kids, this Mama was getting her groove back too! I was doing a great job focusing on my physical fitness, staying healthy, and getting in shape.

Then….

Things took a turn for the worst.

In just one moment, my summer plans changed from enjoying my Zumba classes throughout the week, to pushing hard to build myself back up through physical therapy.  I injured my knee during my Zumba class, which ended up being the worst experience in my life.  My injury left me in a full leg immobilizer for weeks, and quickly put a cap on my family’s summer fun.

I was stuck on the couch for weeks.  I had to depend on my husband, kind friends, and neighbors to help me complete simple daily tasks, and take care of the children. I don’t want to sound like a Debbie downer, but there isn’t really any nice way of putting it…. it sucked!

In addition to my support group, I had another thing that helped me immensely and provided relief during this time…. ACE™ Brand Bandages.  So I was so excited when I was asked to try out the new ACE™ Brand Elastic Bandage with the improved ACE™ Brand Clip.  It was perfect timing!

I seriously don’t know what I would have done without them. The benefits of the new ACE™ Brand Elastic Bandage with ACE™ Brand Clip far surpassed what I would have imagined prior to the accident. They’ve helped me with so many parts of recovery.

When I needed to constantly keep ice packs on my injury for the swelling, the ACE™ Brand Elastic Bandage was there.  The ACE™ Brand Clip easily snaps in place, and was able to hold my ice pack securely.

When I began the rehabilitation process and needed to keep my knee firmly wrapped…. You guessed it: the ACE™ Brand Elastic Bandage with the new ACE™ Brand Clip was there.
