Rich Weil, MEd, CDE responded:
I don't know how much improvement you can make without seeing you in person, so I recommend that you ask your doctor for a referral to a physical therapist. A PT is specially trained and can evaluate, treat, and prescribe the proper exercises. It would be worth it to follow through on this. Go ahead and consult with your doctor about physical therapy. Good luck.
