Limping while walking
I had a left proximal femur fractured 3 moths back. Underwent ORIF. Had significant limping when first started walking a month back. Regularly doing Quad strengthening exercises(Quad Clenches, Short Arcs etc.) and some Hip exercises as suggested by my physiotherapist. Current problem is- Limping goes away right after doing exercises. But then after 2-3 hours of idle period it comes back again(although not very significant but still i do limp little). My question is - How and when can I permanently stop limping? What additional workouts I need to go through? Thanks.

Dear patient. I suggest you get your spine evaluated form a McKenzie therapist and get appropriate exercises prescribed. Also get some strengthening exercises in standing posture for better stability bilaterally. Wishing you happy health.
