Don’t Let Your Broken Bone Stop You From Trick-Or-Treating in Style

Broken bones can be a real bummer, but that shouldn’t keep you from trick or treating!

Halloween Tips for the Injured

Guest post by Goodbye Crutches

Happy Halloween

Halloween is such a fun time of the year. You get to dress up in costume…go house to house and gather candy…and just have an all around good time with friends. When you injure yourself, you may think the fun has come to an abrupt halt. But, that doesn’t have to be the case. There are still things you can do to enjoy Halloween despite, or perhaps even because, of your injury. Here are a few tips to help the holiday remain enjoyable.

Tip#1: Find the Perfect Costume
Creating a costume for yourself on crutches is a new challenge, but there are plenty of ideas out there. You could be an injured soldier; for example, or perhaps a sports person who got injured during play. You could include your crutches by transforming them into wings and going as a bird or you could even do the old-fashioned mummy costume and use the crutches to support the theme. There are plenty of ways to dress around your crutches and even ways to include them.

Tip#2: Stay Safe
You will want to make sure that safety is your highest goal on Halloween. When you are injured, safety is more important than ever. You will want to choose a costume that allows you to move unhindered and one that will not trip you up. You will also want to make sure your flashlight has fresh batteries so you can see your path at all times.

Tip#3: Grab a Different Mobility Device
If you really want to enjoy the day, consider getting a mobility device other than crutches.
Goodbye Crutches has plenty to offer and each device has its advantages on HalloweenGoodbye Crutches Knee Scooter and beyond. The Hands Free Crutch, for example, is easy to walk in and allows you the use of both of your hands at all times. It also makes a great peg leg on a pirate costume! The Knee Scooter allows you to zoom around the neighborhood quickly, and with ease, and the Seated Scooter gives you a place to sit and rest throughout the evening. Any of the devices can be a lot easier on your recovery process on Halloween or any other day.

Tip#4: Consider Fashion
Halloween colorsIf you’ve found the perfect costume, the last thing you want is for your cast to stick out and not blend in. Check out CastCoverz! for covers for all orthopedic devices, such as a cast, brace, walking boot, or crutches, and see if you can find something that will fit the costume perfectly. There are enough fabric choices and options that you should be able to find the perfect cover and fit, and then think about getting a few other options for the rest of the season!

Tip#5: Have Fun
It might take a little more planning this year, but you can still enjoy Halloween and have fun, even in a non-weight bearing status. Plan ahead, and make some adjustments, so you can get the rest you need and enjoy the day!

Halloween Costume Cast Cover Ideas

fashion-cover-arm-braceHaving a broken bone or injury during Halloween can be frustrating. Just because you are casted or booted doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the costume fun.  You can conceal or cover that cast!
