I JUST HAD A REVISION.  TERRIBLE, VERY PAINFULL & I CANNOT WALK WELL WITH 3/4 WEIGHT BEARING ON LEFT HIP.  I WAS A SWIMMER BEFORE THIS.I HAVE A BAD BACK ALSO,

AFTER 6 WEEKS I GOT INTO THE POOL.........IT IS THE VERY BEST THING YOU CAN DO.  CALL THE ARTHRITIS FOUNDATION AND FIND A WARM POOL.  JUST WALK & LIGHTLY DO THEIR PROGRAM.  AFTER A COUPLE WEEKS YOU WILL LOVE IT.

Expertise

I am fully licensed physical therapist. I can answer any questions in regards to all areas of orthopeadic (such as post surgical hip/knee replacements) and neurological conditions (such as MS, stroke, spinal cord, nerve palsy). My special interests are female health, rehab of neurological conditions such as stroke and spinal cord, muscular anatomy and hand therapy. In my former life, I was studying to become a doctor but chose physiotherapy as I related more to people through teaching and spending more 1:1 therapy. Legally, I am not allowed to diagnose a medical condition or prescribe drugs but with my background, I may point you in the right direction of what health care professional you may need to seek or work with.

Experience

Teaching assistant for muscular anatomy Queen's University clinical physiotherapist in two orthopedic clinics physiotherapist on the neurological floor at St. John's Rehab Hospital
