Catchy title, isn’t it?
First of all, go read this. Because that’s my monthly blog for the ICFW.
Ok. So you know my knee issues? Yes, yes you remember. No cartilage, lots of physio, blah blah.
Today I had an appointment with Performance Orthotic something or other. And I went in with my shorts and we discussed my knee issue. My issue is that I want a knee brace so I can play tennis. And go faster on the elliptical without breaking my leg. His issue is that I overpronate. Which I already know. Hence the orthotics. He asked me how long I’ve had them, and I answered that these are new as of December but I’ve worn them for four years.
Then he asked me if I wear them in the house. To which I said no, it’s gross to wear shoes in the house. And I prefer to be barefoot.
The mystery to my disappearing knee cartilage? Because I overpronate and my legs have twisted and worn down all the cartilage in my knees because I don’t wear my orthotics more often.
So…. that means the other knee is shot too?
Yep. Pretty much.
So I was fitted for a custom knee brace, getting a full leg cast etc. And then I was told the price.
Fifteen hundred dollars.
I’m really, really praying that Manulife will cover this….
And I ordered it in baby blue. Because it’s prettier.
