 Walking like Frankenstein
Lena2017    1:19pm Apr 18 2017

Hi everyone,

I've been walking without my boot around the house. Got the CrocsRx to help with the cushioning of my foot. They are working out ok so far. My concern is about the rigidness of my leg- I seem to walk kind of like Frankenstein. Is that a bad thing? Should I not be doing that? If I do it too often (without the support of the crutch) I do feel a strain on the other side of my body. I will be consulting a PT soon but until then, I wondered if anyone else has gone through something similar.

Thanks for your input,
Lena
