Brooke Shields is working hard to recover her ability to walk again.
On Sunday, the star, 55, shared a video of herself on crutches while practicing how to walk in a hospital after injuring her right leg. “Broke my femur. Beginning to mend. No matter what your challenge is, make a positive choice, for yourself, to move forward. #BeginningisNow,” Shields wrote on Instagram along with the clip.
“There’s only 20 percent weight…,” she said on how much weight she puts on her injured femur. “The goal is to bend your knee each time like a little bit, just so you’re not dragging it or hitching up your hip.”
The footage also showed Shields wearing a hospital gown and non-slip socks.

In October, Shields spoke to PEOPLE about working out amid the coronavirus lockdown with her husband producer Chris Henchy and their daughters, Rowan, 17 and Grier, 14.
“I used to get fit doing Broadway shows eight times a week but I always did it for the show or for the job because the camera is not always kind. So there was a vanity reason. I never knew I could find a place of peace that did not deal with outside appearances,” she said.
After she posted photos of herself in bikinis, which showed off her biceps and defined abs. “Listen, I work hard at it. Every day, this summer I worked out. I kind of earned my confidence,” she said, adding that her “daughters say I’m curvy. To them curvy is different. I watch them celebrate it.”
The Broadway dancer didn’t reveal when or how the injury occurred.
Some of her famous friends reacted to the news in the comments section. “So sorry! Courage…it’s in your blood. Sending love,” actress Glenn Close wrote.
“I’m so sorry, let me know how you’re doing,” said Sharon Stone.
