No Patellar Reflex In Knee- Polio Affected

07-20-2005

Am 60 year old. What can be done to my affected knee with out patellar reflex. This condition make me fall un-aware. Could some kind of brace be
helpful?


Could "bledsoe brace" which can be locked in certain position help?

Desperate! As I age, my falls could & will further cause damage to my health

what could a person with polio do, so that the buckling of the knee do not end to a fall?


Would be very thankful for any suggestions or advice.

Jacko60,

thanks for your suggestion. I had massage theraphy from the time I got polio (9 months) for 13 years. The thigh muscles are atropied. None of your suggestion will work.


However thanks for trying.
