Hi everyone – I started walking without crutches on Monday, September 8th, exactly 8 weeks after my tibial spine avulsion. I’m doing several PT exercises, and the recovery is coming along well. I can even climb a few stairs, although going down is more difficult.
My advice – do everything your PT tells you to do – to 120%. Here’s my regimen:
3x daily – 30 leg lifts
3x daily – 30 quad tightening exercises (this one really helps with knee extension)
3x daily – 15 minutes on an exercise bike – (makes a big difference on ROM knee flexion)
3x daily – leg press with 60 pound weights – this also helps a lot
