Hello Mudi, thank you for your question
I understand the problems you are facing right now. Changing places and walking is part of daily life activities. Disruption in the activities of daily life will interfere with a person's role, in medical language it is known as a disability. It is the role of health services, including doctors, to improve the quality of life of patients according to their potential, namely by minimizing disabilities as much as possible.
Before determining a rehabilitation program for you, it would be best to determine the cause of the walking disorder that you are currently experiencing. Given your previous history of trauma, it is possible that you may have injured your muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, joints, or bones. This whole structure plays an important role in influencing the running process.
We recommend that you check with an orthopedic specialist. In addition to asking questions regarding the history of trauma, the doctor will perform a physical examination which is supported by additional examinations, such as X-rays, ultrasound, and MRI. After confirming the problematic structure, the doctor will determine the right treatment for you, either in the form of surgical procedures, medications, or refer you to a medical rehabilitation specialist for an advanced physical exercise (physiotherapy) program, also related to the use of assistive devices (orthosis). walk.
For the time being, while waiting for the doctor's examination and treatment, avoid doing risky physical activities, including driving your own motor vehicle. Always be careful when moving and walking with a cane, especially when going to the bathroom. If it is not possible to do these things alone, do not hesitate to ask other family members for help.
