This is Jamie Glick. I'm here to talk about how to strengthen leg muscles after a broken foot heals. A broken foot can lead to weakness in not just the foot and ankle but also the rest of the leg so it's important to keep that strength up after you heal and are feeling better. After a broken foot heals, it's obvious that the muscles around that foot and ankle are going to become weak. But also the muscles that are up the chain, namely the quads, hamstrings and glutes, those will all become weak as well. So it's important to work the entire leg after you heal up. One of the exercises you can try to start with is a simple standing squat. So when you are squatting, you want to stick your arms out in front of you. You want to stick your backside out behind you. You want to go down very slowly and then come back up. The important thing to remember when doing a squat always be able to see your toes. So don't let your knees come forward too much. Another exercise that you can try is the heel raise. The first time out, you want to try going up on two feet and then back down, go up on your toes and then come down flat and you want to do these very slowly, two sets of ten. The third type of exercise that you can try will help strengthen up the glute in that leg. You're going to lie on your side and this one is called a side lying leg lift. You're going to slowly lift your leg up toward the ceiling, not too high and then back down, again two sets of ten. Always keep the leg in line with the upper body, don't let the leg slide forward.
