Innes Struggling To Play Disabled Er Doctor
Playing disabled doctor KERRY WEAVER on ER for 11 years is taking its toll on actress LAURA INNES' body - she now needs regular chiropractic help to fix her aching bones. On the hit medical drama, Innes' character suffers from developmental hip dysplasia and the actress admits her fake condition is beginning to affect her real life. She explains, "My body is getting a little beat up by this. I have been doing it for 11 years, gratefully and happily, but it has taken a toll. "I am not hobbling around, but my hips are not even. I have to go to a chiropractor, get massages, physical therapy. "My back is sore and my ankle is messed up. I'm all out of alignment, and if you're out of alignment, you are really messed up."
