Actually, it wasn't all that bad.
I started out by giving her the protocol that Dr. Mayo had sent:
- Strengthen hip muscles
- Increase abductor strength
- Eliminate limp
- Sationary bike, recumbent if possible
- Swim therapy
- No straight leg raises
- No stairmaster or squats
As I really have no where to go but up, I'm excited to see how quickly I progress! My goal is to wean off all walking aids in a month.
At my next visit on Wednesday, I get to try out the pool. Yay, I'm so excited to get in the water for the first time!
