And feeling like we've been doing everything wrong.
Confused because when the PT evaluator came over, he said he was amazed at Bob's ability to move his right leg. And now the PT who is actually scheduled to work with Bob, a female therapist, tells me that Bob is not moving his leg at all, except for his "hip flexor". She says that basically Bob's leg is "frozen" except for the hip flexor and all the movement is coming from the hip.
I'm thinking if this were the case, wouldn't Bob be swinging his leg out, stiffly, like a zombie? He doesn't do that. At least, I don't think so. But who am I? Certainly not a licensed/trained therapist.
The Outpatient Rehab therapist told me, on Bob's discharge, that the "best practice exercise for walking is walking". Hence, I had the railing installed in the hall to practice walking on.
This new therapist tells me that Bob could walk that rail for the next ten years and never see any improvement.
I feel like we've been doing everything wrong. I don't know which therapist to believe anymore.
