Last Monday the left knee was replaced with metal and plastic. Rehab requires flexion and extension of the knee so as to minimize tissue scarring. Scarring would reduce the flexibility of the knee.
Typical rehab is very painful with STATIC
pushing and pulling on the tibia for as long as the subject can tolerate the pain. Which is not long. DYNAMIC
flexing and extension of the knee, as with the video below (taken today in my `shed') makes rehab much less painful, to the point where I don't notice it. Three session per day of 40 minutes each.
Today I was able to apply `force' to the pedal with the left leg. Minimal force but steady, progressive improvement. https://drive.google.com/…/1KSLKfKkZyBwkNlfJ3VaOpwBSB…/view…
