Torn ligament


I recently had an injury, where one of my left knee ligaments was torn. I am looking for advice as to what type of knee support, or any other type of equipment to use.

I live in RI, and here it is realy hard these days to get hold on orthopedists, and the earliest appointment I could schedule was for August 9, 2004. So I am wondering how to take care of the knee until the appointment, where we will presumably discuss about a surgery date as well. Unfortunately i am not in a position where i could rest at home during this period, since at the same time I am preparing to finish graduate school, and already starting another project. But of course, if the only way to prevent permanent damage for the future is to rest, I will certainly do so.

Any type of comments/suggestions are welcome!

Thank you very much!

Best regards,

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
