Sometimes our clients tell it best …
A freak fall got this mom surgery and weeks off of her feet
A client who sees us annually for a tune-up let us know she had fallen before the holidays. The freak fall fractured her lower right leg (tibia) and left foot, requiring surgery to repair her leg.
She has been doing the recommended rehab to regain strength and mobility. Although getting stronger, she felt like her foot was disconnected and unstable. Her knee was weak, and her balance was a little scary. Her walker was a constant companion. Her physical therapist told her moving more will help; it wasn’t.
Once healed and cleared to bear weight on her leg, she made it into our office hobbling along with her walker. In that visit we were able to help her put stabilization skills back together. (Stabilization is a background layer of function that provides control.) Her recovery took a huge jump forward.
The following email updates from her were a great way to start the week! Read more
