I tore a muscle in my knee when I was ice skating and had to have an operation to fix it. I ended up having 2 different leg casts over 3 month. My leg was skinny and weak and it hurt when I walked on it. Jennifer was my favorite therapist and with her help - I learned how to walk again! Everyone at Therapy Unlimited are so nice and they always told me what a great job I was doing even when I was grumpy!
The most common bone disease is osteoporosis. With osteoporosis, our bones become weak and are more likely to break and usually occur in the wrist, spine and hip. Every day, our body breaks down old bone and puts new bone in its place. AS we get older, our bodies break down more bone than what we replace. Because this happens over long periods of time and doesn't hurt, many of us aren't aware of our weak bone status and the first sign of osteoporosis is a break.
