The physiotherapist did a bunch of tests on my knees and quads to determine flexibility and range of motion. My knees are actually in pretty good shape with the exception of my left one. It wasn't quite sitting the way it should be. She then did some manipulation on my quads and discovered a whole bunch of knots. Especially in my left leg. Surprise! She then tested my hip strength. Oh my god. It was absolutely DISMAL. I had suspected that was the case. My right side was worse than my left. Weird since I'm right side dominant but whatever. She opted to tape up my left knee so it would get used to being in its proper place. I've been told to leave the tape on for 3-4 days. It's definitely taken some getting used to, especially at first because it didn't bend. It's given me quite the gangsta style strut that's for sure. I am scheduled to go back and see her tomorrow for some A.R.T work on my quads which I suspect will be hideously painful. She'll also give me some hip strengthening exercises to do. I've got my trusty thera band with me today so I can do some glute work in my office. Thank goodness I'm not terribly busy right now.
