Feel Lucky During Your Orthopedic Recovery With These Great Products

Guest Blog Post by Goodbye Crutches

When you trip and fall and injure yourself, you don’t normally feel very lucky. In fact, you probably feel just the opposite. In order to feel a bit more lucky as you go through the recovery process, you may need a few items to help you out. Your orthopedic recovery is all about getting through your day to day life with as much comfort and ease as possible, and when you have these items on your side, you will feel lucky to have discovered them.

Showering Aids
Shower BenchThere’s nothing like a good shower to make you feel better about your situation. But when you are hobbling around on one foot, standing in a slippery shower, and trying to balance, you’re just asking for more bad luck. The good news is there are plenty of shower aids on the market that help you shower safely. The Shower Bench, for example, allows you to sit and enjoy the warm stream of water without having to balance yourself on one leg. And the cast protectors keep your cast covered, so it is protected from the water. A few Grab Bars can help you get in and out of the shower without slipping, too.

Alternatives to Crutches
Knee ScooterIf you really want to feel lucky while you recover from your injury, you should really look into mobility devices that you can use, other than crutches. Goodbye Crutches has three such options and all of them have advantages. The Knee Scooter is a wheeled device that allows you to kneel on a padded area and scoot yourself from place to place. The Seated Scooter works in a similar manner, only you sit and scoot. Both devices even have baskets that attach to the front, so you can carry items along with you wherever you go. And the Hands Free Crutch is a great option that allows you to walk around, much like you did before, while keeping your injury elevated and safely out of the way. You will feel lucky to use any of these three helpful mobility options.

CastCoverZ!
Legz_ClassicCheetah_WO_560__04869.1378873283.165.165When you have a cast on your leg, you might feel like it just screams about the unlucky incident you had when you tripped, fell, or however it was you injured yourself. If you go online and order yourself a few different CastCoverZ! products, you can keep your cast covered up with beautiful, vibrant covers that can either blend in with your outfit or stand out, depending on your preference. You’ll feel fashionable again despite your injured state. And when you are recovering, your state of mind is just as important as your physical comfort.

Helpful People
When you are injured, nothing will make you feel more lucky than a helpful hand at just the right time. You will be amazed by the amount of people who go out of their way to help you. Your family members will likely pitch in more around the house. Your friends might offer to run errands or cook meals for you. Your neighbors might mow the lawn or do other chores for you. And even random strangers might offer to carry things for you or help you in and out of your car. Every time someone lends a hand to you while you recover, that lucky feeling will really kick in.

Though you may not feel lucky about how you injured yourself, there are plenty of helpful items and reasons to feel lucky during the recovery process.
