I managed to get to my 9am physio appointment this morning! The Physio tried me with some normal crutches but I have a very poor grip so didn't get on with them. I suggested a pair of crutches that people with Arthritis use where you put all the weight through your forearm.I got on much better with these although I nearly had a catastrophe when she tried to get me to use the crutches alternately with my legs,it just wasn't happening! we settled on moving both crutches together then walking through.It does feel weird though. I've been put on the list for hydrotherapy and next week she is going to talk about pacing and give me some exercises.
The physio seems to think that I will be able to use one stick in the near future but I thought we only get 6 sessions and I told her that I can't grip so I'm not sure how we will achieve this!
