On Christmas Day Mia Rose tried putting weight on her foot for the first time in 6 weeks…and amazingly it did not hurt at all. She was so happy…quite a wonderful Christmas gift. Over the next few days she was able to give up her crutches completely without any pain at all other than irritation to her shin from the top if the boot.
She had her initial physical therapy evaluation two days before and her range of motion and strength were quite good for the circumstances and her PT gave her range of motion exercise to do at home until her next appointment. She was very pleased to be able to move and begin to work on getting her range of motion back.
