5 weeks Post-Op and 1st Therap. Massage

Filed under wks 5-6

Went to a therapeutic massage therapist last night and my leg feels great.  By the time she finished with my bad leg, I had better ROM than I did on my good leg.  Therapeutic massage isn’t as comfortable as swedish-spa-style massages, but the benefits are amazing.  My scar is already less “stuck” feeling.  She did some very cool passive stretches as well, pulling my toes up and down to the extent they had never been before.  Already booked for another session on Monday.  Highly, highly recommended.  It also feels good to be able to DO something for my leg before I can get out of the boot, and before I’ve been prescribed PT.
