I’m in Canada and got into physio 9 days after my accident. They fit me with a lockable hinged brace – but didn’t lock it and gave me exercises (including ROM). They told me to let pain be my guide, put ice grips on my crutches and referred to to OT so they could figure the best way to get compression stockings on my leg. I can’t do many of the exercises but am doing what I can without pain. I’m back for X-rays on Tuesday.
Good luck everyone and speedy healing!
