At first I explained the lack of range with I must have tightened up and resisted because he didn't tell me what he was going to do. Of course, the next day when I went to put on my shoes and socks, it dawned on me that I did what I always do with the right leg. I pulled it up and set it on the other leg to put on the shoes and socks. Okay...let me test this. Foot down. Now...come up here foot. Bring it home leg! I got it about half way and I couldn't do it. What the heck!? Isn't hip trouble supposed to come when you are OLD!?
However, there are some that I would rather just skip. Because they hurt. He empathized and agreed that yes they do hurt. I told him that since starting these exercises, my knees are hurting less, but now my hips hurt. He told me this was normal as I am retraining the muscles and moving the weight to the center. Cool that I remember that. I still don't like it though. And I still have to see the ortho to see just what is going on with my
knees hips. The therapist told me something that I thought was so interesting. For me anyway. He was talking about the progression of my therapy and how he would only use exercises that were appropriate for my needs. Hmmmm...so all that stuff about ask your doctor...well you should, but if you can see a physical therapist. That is their specialty. Not only that, they will give you exercises that will benefit you. And some that will torture challenge you.
What are your ailments?
