I had quite a few injuries as a kid and it just had to happen since I was a pretty active kid. I remember one of my injuries quite vividly, as this injury took a long time to heal and was pretty serious. I was out skiing all day and on the last run that we decided to do, I slipped on some ice and the ski didn’t come off the way it is supposed to automatically.
That accident was pretty scary and I ended up losing control and tumbling down the hill with my leg twisting in a weird way. I ended up with a broken leg and the damage almost left me with one leg that is shorter than the other. Luckily, we found a great specialist who found a way to heal the leg completely without surgery and without permanent injury.
Getting some great children’s crutches helped me to get around well when I had the broken leg. The crutches that I was using worked well for me and they helped me to still stay active. Since I had a very active childhood, it was hard for me to not be able to walk on my leg. I had to use the crutches for four months and they really helped me out.
