I get the pleasure of have a meniscus tear removed (medial) in early December. Doc and I have agreed that physical therapy would be a waste of time. I can still do oly squats and actually set my PR with power squats with this rip in place. My legs are stronger than they’ve ever been, but I do get the occasional pain from the tear. PT wouldn’t really do anything for me.
I’m looking for a post surgery recovery leg program. From prior experience (I had my right knee done, same thing, a little over two years ago), I was able to retain my range of motion. My concern is with doing more than body weight in movements. Therefore, I was considering King’s Twelve Weeks of Pain, part I. I think I’m going to substitute some ham-glute raise for the leg flexions and extensions but keep the rest.
Any thoughts on using this program as a post surgery recovery?
