    Yes I do stairs daily. That article is almost 20 years old Lol. I’m doing that trail 3 times a week now so Sunday I did almost half and was more winded than anything lol my main concern was that stair climbing is not on the banned list of activities. I’m in no hurry going up or down lol.

    It’s almost passive movement as I’m not exerting much effort, kind like getting used to a bike seat and just the motion, I understand the healing aspect and I don’t want to jeopardize it

    I’m doing pretty good on backing off when things are really sore. Monday and Friday are no swim and no PT days, just walking and stairs. im getting to ice only once a day but it’s for close to an hour. My PT gal is actually very reasonable and is tailoring exercises that don’t wipe me out.
