Hi all, I started PT yesterday. For the next two weeks, I am transitioning from two crutches, to one crutches, to full weight bearing. It will have been 8 weeks since I fell 30 feet off of a mountain in the High Sierra Nevada in California. Here are the exercises my PT has prescribed for me:
1. Straight Leg Raise – 3 reps of 10-12 leg raises, twice per day
2. Quad Sets – tightening the quad muscle, 3 reps of 10 tightens, twice daily
3. Sitting knee flexion – Bend right knee as much as possible
My ROM was 30 degrees of flex at first. When I went to my PT, I had 89 degrees of flexion, and -15 degrees of extension. After a bit of work, I was able to get to 105 degrees of flexion, and -7 degrees of extension. My normal range of motion is 139 of flexion, and 0 degrees of extension.
Hope all of this information helps – Best of health, folx -= LisaB
