subluxate: Sophia Bush leaning against a piano (Default)
[personal profile] subluxate posting in [community profile] ehlersdanlos
I went to sleep wearing two knee braces. They're neoprene with Velcro to secure them, and there are four Velcro straps to tighten it better when the neoprene is secured. They're hinged, and there are gel circles that go around the kneecaps. I don't usually wear them to sleep, but since I woke up yesterday in quite some pain because my left knee subluxated, I wanted to prevent that if possible.

Somehow, even with the braces, my left kneecap slid again--downward this time, not to the side.

Any advice on keeping them in place?

Afraid not, love. My kneecaps only subluxate rarely, and never as easily as yours.

(It's just us for now; feel free to plug the comm wherever you like to get more people in here - I will do myself, after Yuletide!)

*nods* So I've seen. For me that would be my left shoulder, closely followed by hips, ankles, jaw and sacroiliac...
