Hey guys, started my own thread so i wouldn’t have to hi-jack the other prolo threads.
anyways. got my first treatment to day. Hurt a lot less then i expected! Its a bit “tight” right now, but zero pain, might hurt more tomorrow.
the doctor was also very optimistic that It could be all worked out in only 3 sessions (4-8 weeks apart), maybe less given my excellent blood work (i had done independently 2 months ago), nutrition, flexibility/mobility and the fact that im pretty young (22)
it was a lot different then the videos on youtube of prolo on the knee.
i had far fewer injections, but each one was with a very large gage needle (he refers to it as “swiz-cheesiing”. the injections were only on the patella tendon as the other tendons are in fine condition.
later i just rode a stationary bike.
tomorrow ill ride a bike again and go to the gym and just do some light upper-body training (it my de-load week anyways).
he said that if on wednesday it felt good, that i could do some body-weight squats and VMO activation work and to build each day.
Im planning on having the first heavy squat session of my new program on monday so it will be exactly 7 days after the first treatment which he said would be fine as long as I kept the eccentrics slow and warmed up very carefully.
