Use gates that screw in to your woodwork, not the expandable gates that you often see, these are not secure! teach all family members to close the gates as they go through them. Remember gates only work when you use them properly. ...Read more

Unlike it does for an ankle sprain--Ice, an ace wrap and a few days off of its feet--wouldn't have made it better. ...Read more

Avoid stairs: If you have already having difficulties with your knee from the previous injury, stairs may pose a bigger and bigger challenge in coming years. Would recommend a single level home to avoid needing to go up and down stairs on a regular basis. ...Read more
