Thread: Look at my new signature

  1. #1

    Talking Look at my new signature

    Look at it. YES
    I'm so proud Using my crutches most of the time now in my home. Still have things I can't do from the crutches, like cleaning, washing clothes, putting a DVD into the player , carrying stuff, etc.
    But hey...it's something.

    Its now 2 years and 3 months since my injury and are still very motivated to continue working my ass off getting better.

    Cool!

    Fantastic! It must be great to feel your full height again. Hard work I am sure but you must be enjoying every minute of it.
    And this is before you go for intensive rehab in September - after that, you'll be flying!!

    Wow that is awesome man! you've really came far! Its great to see hard work pay off! Keep up it and you'll be doing jumping jacks in no time

    Are you using forearm crutches or standard? I noticed the forarm crutches allowed me to be alot more functional than regular and also gave me a better gait pattern.

    Thanks Barbara,

    Full height Thats funny, with my 5'8" I'm having a hard time breathing up there..

    I'm really looking foreward to the 4 weeks intensive threadmill training in september. Hoping for great improvements there too.

    Thanks man,

    eeeh I guess I'm using forearm crutches Standard...do they go under the arm pits?

    My balance sucks since I have only one leg working. I walk on spasms on the left leg and yes my gait also sucks

    Solan,

    I also walk with spasims on my left leg, so it stays straight. The ones under your armpit might actually be more difficult. If you can try, ask your PT or whoever if you can try crutches that look like this:


    I think it might help your gait alot! goodluck!
