Thanks. I just returned home from PT. My therapist got me to 95* today. I’ll be (4) weeks PO tomorrow. Is 95* around average or a bit below average.
What does that mean? Did he push you to there or did he verbally encourage you to get there? If he pushed you, that is the wrong thing for him to do. Besides, he did it and not you with your own muscles so it doesn't count.My therapist got me to 95* today
Sometimes I wish I could get in a time machine and get past this phase.
This means that your knee is just not ready to do that bend yet on its own, since it was the PT who got you to that number. But it will. I know patience is hard but it’s a must have in this recovery.Therapist got me to 105. Feels like I’ve kinda stayed stuck there all week
I hope you haven't overdone. Being painful is a symptom that your knee has had enough and you need to stop.With every rotation I had to adjust and lift with my hip. It got very painful at the end of the spin.
If you want your ROM to progress faster, stop allowing your PT to do this. What he is doing is keeping your knee upset and causing more swelling, which prevents ROM from increasing. It is counterproductive to do this. It just boggles my mind how many PTs think this is the way to rehab a knee. I will never allow that again.but I was to busy laying on my back crying out in pain while a guy laid on my leg trying to bend it.
