Orthopaedic Injuries And Driving

If you’ve suffered an injury that has left you in a cast or brace, or recently undergone a procedure that is associated with a lengthy recovery phase, you’re probably looking to get back to your normal routine as soon as possible. However, one question I often get is about driving and when one can safely get back behind the wheel.plantar-fasciitis-matthew-boes

Obviously, every case and injury is different, and therefore timing may vary and you should talk to your doctor about specifics. However, following are general rules-of-thumb.

  • You should never drive if you have a cast or brace on your right leg or on your wrist or elbow that prevents you from safely operating a car.

  • If you recognize that your injury/treatment in any way requires you to do something different than what you’re used to when driving, you should be cautious about getting behind the wheel. Although you may be able to adapt and make the necessary changes, any sort of delay in reaction can have serious consequences.

  • If you are sleeping poorly because of pain or medication as a result of your injury, remember that your reaction times and alertness may be affected.

  • If you think you are ready to get behind the wheel, consider going to a large, empty parking lot and make sure you can operate the vehicle safely.

Getting back to your normal routine after an injury and/or surgery is important. Don’t be afraid to talk with your doctor about any issues you are facing or questions you have regarding the recovery process. Orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Matthew T. Boes is always open to discussion. Call today!
