  • Perceived effectiveness for Improve mobility: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: I was using a walker in the past to help me with mobility. I was able to stop using it after I went through the LSVT Big Exercise Program and was feeling great. Then, I found out that this intense exercising, made me tear the meniscus in both my knees, and I had arthroscopic knee surgery on both knees on 11/3/10. I am doing rehab with my LSVT therapist, who wants me to use my walker again.

Advice & Tips: Most of the time I am using my walker when I know I am going to be out and about for more than ten minutes. Getting it in and out of the car can be awkward but its like having a mini trolley to put things in so beneficial in that respect.
