What should you do after a wreck?

The first step is to call the police to work the accident. Then you have to fight with the insurance company to pay the bills. After that you may still have problems. What then? 

My husband had a bad motorcycle wreck when he was 18. It was so bad he was honorably discharged from the Army because of his knee. He’s having problems with it some 29 years later. It’s still bothering him. You don’t know how good you have it if you do not have knee and hip pain. It can really make your life get stuck on pause. He can’t work out with me. He can’t play softball like he used too. He has a hard time doing chores around the house. He does them because he’s stubborn but it’s not easy on him.  He hates sitting on the sidelines when his family is doing fun things.

Don’t let life hit pause because of your joint and hip pain. Get out there and live again. Start out by talking to your doctor about what your options are. Locate a physician in your area that can give you solutions. Then visit the timetohitplay.com initiative and see what they’re up too.  Check out this video of we miss you when hiking and see what life is like with knee and hip pain.



Don’t sit out on any more fun family events. Go back to being active. Start with walking in your neighborhood. Then maybe move up slowly to other fun activities you enjoy. Have fun bowling. See a movie. Most of all just get your life back. Start by visiting the physician finder in case you don’t have one. Then find out what they can help you with. Get out there and have fun again. Live your life and enjoy being with family and doing fun things again! Make your doctor your partner and he will help you get out there and enjoy life again!
