Thank you for your reply! “How long has it been since the surgery?” 2 months
“I would get input from his doctor and physical therapist.” The gym I train at is half PT and half fitness center so I have been in contact with our physical therapist routinely about his workouts.
“After the first few months lunges and step ups (then step downs) are added in, but I would not do anything without clear guidelines from his md and pt.”
We are just starting to get into step-ups. I have done many unilateral movements at this point to strengthen the surrounding muscles in his leg. We have done quarter squats as well and he has done terrific with those! I am very fortunate because this partuclaur person is great when it comes to perseverance and overcoming challenges.
“Usually after about 4 months most are advised they can resume normal exercises and activity.”
That’s what I have been told! Thanks for your help 🙂
