Have been going to In Motion Therapy 3 days a week, for about an hour each time. My results as of today are 106° flexion and has to get to 120! The extension is -5° so
it's that close to being straight. Someone at the Manor asked if the therapist is going
to come to the Manor! So many kinds of equipment he uses that it wouldn't work to
come to the Manor.
My knee is still warm and swollen. When I haven't walked for awhile it feels like there is
a band around my knee. Before going in this morning I did some exercises at home to
limber the joint so that then I get some benefit from the moves he has me do. First thing each time is to pedal a bike type of thing where the pedal goes all the way around. First it's almost impossible but eventually I get it to go around. Also stepping onto a stool is o.k. when good knee leads but when the left leg leads it is very difficult. Pa was going to call the Dr. re redness and swelling and heat in operated joint. Ryan said it is
normal to have that heat and swelling at this point. Mom
