Today was my last physical therapy appointment. As I suspected, my knee just needs more time and I need to continue the exercises. I just don’t need the therapist to stand there and watch me do step ups or calf raises. So, my 2 future appointments have been cancelled and I can call in a few weeks and go back if I deem it necessary.
Tim did give me a couple of new exercises to help with balance and lateral strength. They are hard to describe, but involve standing on one foot and having the other foot move around while under tension.
I’m happy with my progress and just need to remain patient as the knee continues to heal. I’m hoping to go strawberry picking soon and I don’t want my knee to be trouble.
After my PT appointment, I did 15 minutes on the elliptical. I’ll be slowing increasing my time as my knee allows. In a couple of weeks, I hope to work on increasing the intensity.
Next up: day off with the family.
