Does anyboby know if there is any long term affects to walking on a hyperextended knee?
Im a full time walker, using one crutch. My problem is that my left leg is very strong, while my right leg is alot weaker and is always sitting back in a hyperextended fashion.
Bracing has never been suggested to me. I wore an afo for the first 6 months but that was purely for my ankle lift.
My physio told me that i will get no long term affects from walking this way, but im starting to question this as have experienced pain in right knee when walking for extended periods.
Has anyone out there experienced this problem and fixed it? If so how? If i keep exercising it and strengthen the muscle will my knee naturally fix its self an stop hyperextending?
