 Re: Limp and Balance problems

Hi -
What kind of PT exercises were you given?
My PT worked with me alot on one leg, balance exercises for example standing on a pillow or a small trampoline, on the bad leg - for 30s sets. Also alot of calf raises first on both legs then on the bad leg alone - I still do these 6 months later and find the strength and balance very good in this leg. I still limp slightly in the morning coming down the stairs and I find if I do some forward knew stretches just when I get out of bed I don't limp, it's like the leg is tight in the morning.

July 1 2017 - spiral break fibula July 7 Aircast NWB road bike wipeout
July 31 - PWB
Aug 18 - FWB in boot Aug 22 - first PT
Aug 24 - 8 wks - FWB boot no crutches
Sept 7 - 10 wks - first steps no boot
