To get around the house, I use my walker for stability. Since our weather has been so fantastic lately, I do want to get outside and walk a little. The Physical Therapist is teaching me how to re learn to walk. I let my knee go for so long, that I threw my walking pattern off.
So here's the tricky part, (at least for this uncoordinated lady) Right foot- step with heal and let foot roll to toe, then left step forward. OK I am working on that, plus trying to keep my foot straight with each step; as I tend to swing my leg out.
The next challenge-- when the right foot moves forward, the cane in my left hand should go with the foot. Sounds simple, doesn't it?
Its a good thing we have few neighbors, because I must be a sight to chuckle at, as I try to put this all together.
Left, right, heel, toe, straight foot, cane..... oh my.
Who knew walking took so much concentration.
And that's the way it is.............
