Re: broken knee cap

I broke my left kneecap about 5 weeks ago and did not have to have surgery. I have been wearing a stabilizer and can now bend my knee. I start therapy this week. Can anyone share similar experiences and/or advice? How long did therapy and recovery take?

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Valuable trainer and coach time is saved when taping is eliminated. In an independent sudy of athletes Swede-O ankle braces were chosen as most comfortable.
