[RC] Knee surgery and back to riding - to Val and others interested - Lynne Tomovick

Val - get the PT after surgery.  Generally it can be as little as 1-3 visits for home program, things to do/avoid etc. after menisectomy.  Most of the folks I've worked with (I work as physical therapist) do great and are back to normal actiivity within a month or so. 

I've always thought the closed chain mini squats aka posting would be great strengthening :)  Just remember, progressive loading principles and checking for heat and swelling :)  Don't forget the Trigger points, manual work as needed too ... it helps with recovery if you've got issues.

Good Luck!
