My daily visit to the center of the physiotherapy



This is how my life has become for the last 2 months. Daily visits to a center for physiotherapy, where my legs has been subjected to more than 50 mA current on a daily basis, backed with some really tough exercises.
You want to know the reason; you have to go back to more than 8 years in 1998 where I had an ACL injury while playing football. Than I thought that my knee has recovered completely until I ran the 2006 Beirut Marathon (42.195 km plus 600 meters added because of the camping in DT). I suffered severe knee pain during the Marathon and after it. I consulted the physician, and it turned out that I still have weak thigh muscles (Quadriceps in particular) which is increasing the pressure on the knee, to undergo physiotherapy sessions for two months.
The reason for this therapy is my weak left knee caused by weak thigh muscles (Quadriceps in particular). (I love how causality can explain some phenomena, but not always)
Bottom line: In order to have a strong knee, you have to have strong muscles to take the pressure off the knee. One element cannot support all the efforts and pressure otherwise it will crack. It’s the coordination and collaboration of all the members in the body, the family, the society, the nature and the cosmos working as one entity that produce the perfect balance and equilibrium, primordial for the productivity and the survival.

Salemtak!

I know what you're going through, I wento to 15 physical therapy sessions for both my knees, no injuries or anything, I just have weak knees!

The problem is (I don't know if it's the same with you), is that I need to do this every one in a while, because the muscles "melt"... donno the technical explanation though!

Hope you get well soon.

Thanx lili,
In fact my knee is not the only weak part in my body. My right ankle is even weaker. (not to mention the Heart :P)(of course, metaphorically)
I finished 20 sessions and I'm now supposed to run and swim but I cheated on the program and I had a ride on my bike and guess what, I crashed! Now I'm trying to find an excuse to tell to the doctor.

MMMMMMMMM a dit…

Is it Physiotherapy, or Psychotherapy :D:D
