Did I Cry During TKR Physical Therapy? Is The Pope Catholic?

Another question I recently received from one of my readers was asking me if I ever cried during PT? My answer….Is The Pope Catholic?

Using Ankle Weights & A TKR

Recently (today), I figured it might be fun and adventurous to start using 2 pound ankle weights on each leg while going on my daily walks.  It worked out great!  There is no way that my tkr leg would have allowed this only a few short months ago.  How time heals all, eh?

Until today, the […]
