It's all in the Knee

Exercises found here. 

Guess what? Instead of my usual litany of aches and pains, today the subject of my post is a good thing. Wahoo!

I'm sure that I've bored everyone silly with my stories about the osteoarthritis in my knee. The pain, the swelling, the limping........the injection, the fluid removal...wah wah wah....  But I'm happy to say that things have improved considerably. I'm thinking this is due to either one or all of three things:

  1. A synvisc injection
  2. Taking glucosamine supplements after clearing it with Dr. Young Guy
  3. A visit to my physical therapist, who instructed me in appropriate exercises to increase the flexibility and strength of the muscles around my pesky joint.

What's not to love about exercise instructions that say, "IMPORTANT - no movement should occur during this exercise."
So glad your knee is better!
