Entry Site For Needle into Joint Capsule:
The stem cell/PRP aftermath is interesting. I can now bend the knee into almost 90 degree flexion despite the tightness, although I still can’t fully extend or flex quad hard. This is one of four entry sites, this one I believe being the intracapsular one. A sharp metal point rocking around inside the knee was a little disconcerting.
What I find fascinating is that there were Luddites who once believed that injecting cortisone into a knee or spine was a good idea. I find it more fascinating that some cave-dwellers still believe it's a good idea. Meanwhile, those of us who've actually studied HOW the body heals moved in the opposite direction: invoking pain with purposeful pro-inflammation in order to grow or regrow tissue (ie - healing).
I don’t want to jump to conclusions; and we have to factor in that the knee is currently swollen. But the rotational instability from before procedure already appears less. I won’t be pushing the knee hard for a little while, at which point we can see more definitively. But I can cycle, walk, do stairs, and pickup my kids, etc., even the day after procedure. Pain is still high, which I take as a good indicator of growth.
I plan on a very modest leg routine by Tuesday or Wednesday, staying in frontal plane, with maybe one transverse exercise like banded shuffle or side plank clamshell. Stay tuned.
