The Road to ACL Recovery (Day 21)

Have I really not updated in five days? Progress has been tremendous since then. I can now walk without crutches on flat ground outdoors, though I keep ’em handy in case I hit a rough patch of sidewalk. The basic exercises are easy, and I no longer wear a brace indoors. Sitting for prolonged periods of time still lead to discomfort and stiffness, so just gotta keep loose and stretch every now and then.

The next hurdle is step-ups, which, true to their name, recreate the pressure put on the knee from going up and down stairs. These were a major headache last time I went through PT, and I struggled with them today.

Overall, though, still pleased with progress. I’m also now allowed to bike on my own, which means I’m finally back at the gym.
