Q. I can't seem to get things "back to normal" after a broken leg.
The cast has been off for awhile (4 weeks) but everything seems a bit off kilter. Is this to be expected?
Will it come back to normal? Should I be doing something in the meantime? Thank you
Unless you had a bad break in the joint, or if you developed a "contracture" of your joint, things should come back to normal provided you are using your leg in a "normal" way.
If you don't use your leg, it will likely become even more stiff, and delay return to normal function.
I recommend moving your leg in every direction as far as it will go to keep it from becoming stiff - and why not ask your doctor for a prescription to see a physical therapist?
