I did that myself for months after my last surgery and it seems to have helped. Unlike my previous three surgeries, I had no patellar clunking or grinding, and it may be that the patellar mobilization exercises that can take the credit. Hard to be sure of course - too many other variables in play.The patella mobilization…gives me the heeby jeebies personally. I had a pt recommend that I do it myself and showed me how and I thought, ‘I’m definitely never doing THAT again.’ It just felt weird and wrong. But maybe it works for some
I agree, beachy. I love my pt’s office! They’ve helped me through three other surgeries and were great. This PKR has been a little different. Partly because they wanted to rehab it like a sports injury, and partly because my knee was just so darn reactive and had so much swelling. It just really needed rest and healing and did not react well to repetitive exercise. I DO want to go back and work on strengthening exercises with them when I feel my knee is ready and my ROM is good enough that they won’t bug me about it. I think we’ll have a great time then, and they’ll be really helpful.Just to clarify, I am not against PT. This same company(different location) really helped me last tkr. I am against AGGRESSIVE PT.
