Thank you for all your comments and suggestions. I really think I need to go back to the drawing board. I was never offered any physio from the NHS and all my physio was self funded. He was very good, but limited in the facilities at the local practice and to return, I doubt I’d get the space that I need to walk correctly. I have been walking “heel toe” as I had it drummed in to me from my previous fracture. I’ve had hydrotherapy and I was fine walking in the water. Confess I’ve been remiss in doing my exercises on a daily basis as I found the heat of late, very oppressive. I think that you’re right…..I need to get my bad leg much stronger, as I found today walking around town for an hour. *note to self – do exercises EVERY day, despite the heat!* I think I might look for another physio with better facilities!
