I have done just about everything I can to improve knee strength and stability. It’s taken me all the way back to full range of motion lower body exercises and near my best strength records. Even this 6 inch deficit Sissy squat (video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/ByJ8pg0jWuj/) isn’t something I could do well prior to Lyme disease. And from 2014 to 2017 I couldn’t reliably bend right knee beyond 90 degrees without locking.
But, alas, the ligaments and joint capsule still have some laxity in them from when I had the infection. Thus, rapid rotation and certain twisting pressures dislocate me excruciatingly. It’s seldom, and it’s far better than even a year ago, let alone 2-5 years ago. Today I’ll be undergoing a PRP and/or stem cell treatment in order to reduce (hopefully eliminate) the last remaining laxity in the knee. Stay tuned.
