 Limp and Balance problems
Caryn    6:53am Jan 11 2018

It has been 10 months since I broke my tib/fib. Recovery isn't as fast as I would like. I still only walk when needed not for fun which is something I miss. I had 7 months of PT and since then have been working with a personal trainer to help get my body strong again. My big concern now is my limp as well as my balance. If I really focus I can walk with out the limp but as soon as I forget it kicks back in. And my balance is bad. I can easily be knocked over if I step wrong or someone bumps into me. I don't look like me anymore because of this. Any wonderful suggestions for getting my balance back other than strengthening it? Has anyone tried any alternative therapies that have worked?
