Thread: Walking a hill

  1. #1

    Walking a hill

    I am 6 weeks post bronken ankle surgery. After 6 weeks on no weight bearing, I can now put 50 lbs of my weight onto my foot. For a few weeks, I will be in a very hilly area and do not know what to use for the steep hills. Would a walker or crutches work? Thanks in advance for the advice.

    You're in the wrong place, pal.

    Check with your orthopaedist.

    sorry, I did not realize this was only for spinal injuries.

    A walker probably wouldn't work too well. I think the crutches might give you more support.

    Just wondering how he found us, that's all. Is CareCure for spinal cord injuries and orthopaedic injuries?
