Re: Broken Tibia and Fibula

Back in 2002 I broke my right Tibia and Fibula playing softball. I was really lucky and didn't need surgery but I was on bed rest for four weeks, in a wheel chair for two, crutches for two, and a boot cast for three weeks, it made for a pretty lame summer.

Silicone inserts leave radius and ulna pressure-free and provide intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
