Re: Trimalleolar ORIF recovering

I sure hope you are going to go to physical therapy. You need massage, joint mobilization and stretching...of which you probably can't do yourself. However, they will show you some things you can do at home. The swelling....elevate as much as you can. Can you get some sort of compression sock or stocking? that would help a great deal.'
Good luck!

Pro-Tec Athletics' J-Lat Knee Support helps guide the patella back into proper alignment with gentle pressure from the lateral to medial direction. Compression surrounding the patella will help keep it in the patella-femoral groove.
