Maybe yes, if lucky
After a fracture
of the hip or pelvis, or after a replacement hip, a 90 year-old can go through good rehab and gait
training to see if he can walk steadily with just a cane or with nothing at all.
Often, the elderly person is less steady, less coordinated, and slower in the reflexes, due to age. . . And that was the reason for the first fall and fracture. . . Which means a walker would be wise!
