I had ankle surgery and at PT they have a great stretching strap that I use their to turn my foot inwards that has a 8 inch rubber section where you put your foot and it doesn't slide off my shoe like the make shift strap I use at home (dog leash). I have looked online and can't find one like it. Does anyone know where you can get one? My PT said they are commonly used after hip replacements.

Do you mean Therabands? I have used them for years but don't now. I bought mine by the yard from a medical supply store. Ask the PT where you can buy them.

No there not therbands, they are made from a nylon material like a dog leash but they have loops on both ends for your hands and have a 8 inch area in the middle with a black rubber piece sewn on so it doesn't slip off your foot. My PT said he didn't know where to get them.

I looked on amazon. They didn't have it. The one at PT has a tag on it that said "The Assist strap" but I can't find them online. What strap did they give you after your hip replacement?
