snapping back of knee after stroke
« on: August 10, 2005, 02:38:56 AM »
I had a stroke 5 years ago.  At that time, I was paralyzed on my right side.  Prognosis was I would not be able to use my right arm and walk without a cane for the rest of my life.  My daughter is a nurse and my wife is very stubborn.  I went to rehab - staying in house for 1 month.  Then, outpatient for 6 months.  Anyway, I have made tremendous progress.  I walk on my own and use my right arm.  The only problem is when I walk, my right knee snaps back.  I was wondering if there is any excercise I can due for this.  I do work out every day at a gym to make sure I can always move without assistance.  Thank You.  Jerry
