    buckling legs inspite of wearing a kafo

    I am trying to stand again after post femur fracture (5 mo.s ago) using my kafo. However, I do not get anymore a spastic leg. I am wearing a kafo and I cannot get my legs still to straighten up so that I can put weight on it by standing on my walker. Any suggestion? Thanks in advance

    I would also recommend strongly that you see a good PT to get an evaluation of both your spasticity and range of motion, and clearance for full weight bearing after your fracture from your orthopedist before working on, and then progressing to standing and ambulation again.

    Moving this to the Exercise forum.
