1 Week Since Knee Injection:
PROinflammatory is a whole different world from ANTIinflammatory. PROinflammatory injections address pathology. ANTIinflammtory injections (and drugs) reduce some symptoms, but may worsen the overriding situation.
I’ve still got some bruising and swelling, which is a sign of growth and continued repair. As far as I can tell, though, I’m pretty unrestricted, as this is the greatest depth of sissy squat (8 inch deficit) I’ve ever done (video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/ByeLsTlDz-f/). No locking, dislocation or irritation.
This particular exercise seems to me to be the best of several worlds: yogic, mobilization, strength, and conditioning. For those interested, begin shallow. Ensure you tuck the hips into posterior pelvic tilt, and keep them forward. Keep the quads tense, not lax. In time, your feet, toes, and quads (and sundry other structures) will endure greater tension and range.
