Will cane or single crutch prevent healing?
« on: July 15, 2011, 01:22:52 AM »
First, I want to thank you all for your help with my knee trouble for the past several years.  I have a questions as to whether or not the use of a cane or single crutch when my leg is painful would in the long run prevent my leg strength from coming back.  I had a TTT three years ago.  My knee feels great, it's the muscles that support my weight that hurt.  I have a recumbent bike that I think I got overzealous the other day, and today with weather changes my bad leg hurt from the arch of my foot to the quad as it connects to my hip.  I have lower back issues and hip issues from several years of limping on my bad leg.  I don't want to make my atrophied leg worse.

Thanks in advance!
