Graduating from Physical Therapy

Today, after 10 weeks, was my graduation from physical therapy.  That doesn’t mean, however, that I don’t need to do any more exercising.  On the contrary, I still have muscle stiffness that needs some stretching. Graduating from physical therapy means that my flexibility degree was at 110.  That’s cool.  🙂

I’m going to miss going in every day to do my exercises there.  It was a quiet atmosphere and the machines were great.  Plus, the laughs were much needed by me.  My PT lady was just great.  She’s a Jimmy Buffet fan that just has the most upbeat attitude.

I have a rowing machine at home that will do well in stretching my leg muscles.  It’s fun to use, actually.

So…outpatient pt has ended.  A new phase begins. The work is not over. I’m going to work until I reach 125 flexibility.

  1. I have also worked a lot on fitness and teach many people to have a strong & flexible body with stretching and who much it is essential also have explained all this in my Blog with illustration .


    You will find att the information & guidelines on health & Fitness and most importantly thses are simple which can be done at home..



  2. I had double total knee replacement 8 weeks ago and it is great to read your blog. I am still in PT and am struggling with 10 degrees but I have only had therapy for 6 weeks so far. My place of PT offers a step down program for when they are done with me. I can go as often as I like and they will design a program for me to follow and I get to use all of their machines for a minimal monthly fee for a couple of months. I think that will be great as I always feel really good after therapy. Others should ask if their place of therapy has that kind of program.

  3. Congrats to you Susan! I know how the struggling for more flexibility goes. That’s great how your PT place offers you that discounted rate. 🙂 Wish mine would. That’s a fantastic idea!!

    Good luck!
