at the moment im struggling to recover from microfracture of the knee and everything is trying to compensate 6 weeks of no load bearing then trying to walk again im at week 13 after opperation and its worse than it was and 12 months out since all this flared up again Befor that i was walking round like a good un COULDNT RUN ON IT BUT I WAS cooking on gas with my walking for 3 years. Whent in for hernia opperation and 10 weks after kept feeling as week as anything in my body with night sweats where the bed would be wet throug the next morning. walking i push hard on the painto see if the enevitable will happen again where it wore off with me fighting it but i seem to be loosing that battle as since the opperation on the leg its now jamming and stinging like mad shoulders ache back bottom aches hands have little lumps all over the dips and pips but i have good grip hey ive even had teeth pulled in the loss of gums receding.
all i can say on this is i have met a few of these people in my time and unless they have had it they dont even understand Newton's ist and 3 laws.
i will explain what i say to them his 1st law their is 15 pounds per square inch of air pressure pushing down on every part of your body all the time (this is called gravity The body has it on centre of gravity ie when we stand up the body maintains a vertical center of gravity to spread the load BUT IF ONE TAKES ONE SHOE OFF AND TRIES TO WALK IT FEELS FUNNY why is that because the body your spine your leg everything tries to find a new center of gravity (try it) which in turn makes the body say hey their we need to make some ajustments here im not standing vertical So the spine the legs the ankles every thing tries its best to adjust for having one shoe off. now the 3 law of Newton's. newton said that when in nature a force is applied of say 20 pound forse in a leg moving forward their is allways an opposit load of 20 pounds going in the opposite direction HAS TO BE. That in turn means every mussle in the leg has to take this load So if one is weak or has something wrong another part in the leg has to compensate for this error. THIS USUALLY BLOWNs THEIR MIND A LOT BECAUSE PHISIO DONT THING IN TERMS OF SCIENCE and you cant get round the apple falling down AND not upwards.
SO IF THEY HAVE GIVEN YOU ONE EXERSISE THEY ARE WRONG IF ITS A QUAD EXERSISE STRENGTHENING THE KNEE. BECAUSE THAT WONT HELP UNLESS THEY GIVER YOU THE EXERSISE FOR THE VMO MUSSLE WHICH HELPS THE PATTELA TRACK IN ITS GROVE AND STABALISE THE KNEE JOINT because the nerves their must fire that signal at the same time . NEXT TIME YOUR THEIR ask them should i not be exersisisng the knee quad and vmo mussles otherwise the knee wont stabalise.
im trying to recover at moment from a microfracture 2cm square of the knee that is not working and my ankle joint hurts cos everything is compensating for loss of cartlidge in the knee.
it makes my blood boil that they dont check everything out properly before they start pussing people on ballance boards etc and messing up somthing else.
hope this give you a laugh kirsty but i would like to see his face if you ask that question
