Bluegrass Orthopaedics would like to congratulate Jeuarlet McClanahan as our latest Comeback Champion! Jeuarlet injured herself while doing an activity that she absolutely loves - aerial silks. "In April, I was training aerial rope and injured my arm, but had no idea of the severity. I kept training on it, but could feel something wasn't right. It wasn't until I reached out to my daughter's high school athletic trainer that I realized how significant the injury was."
