Physical Therapy: Week 8

More strength and agility exercises were introduced to my therapy this week. Due to schedule conflicts I wasn’t able to do as much of my home exercise program.

Started swimming this week. Being back in the water was very therapeutic and was exactly what my body and mind needed. I did three swim workouts this week. Caution was used with kicking. I warmed up with the pull buoy and paid close attention to my knee while not using the buoy. The swims all went on with no incidents. Knee felt great with just a bit of tightness as expected. PT was glad to hear that I’m swimming again. All my swims were freestyle. Any breaststroke is not recommended yet. This style involves too much knee movement.

Added exercises:
Calf raises with weights
Leg press
More agility exercises
