I got 87 degrees on my plastic right knee today. I focus all my pain on my physical therapist.

I need 90 by next week to avoid "manipulation". Sounds just peachy. ARGHHH!

If you want to hear me cry like a baby, stop by on PT day.

Keep it up Pete. Just think about how good it will be to kick-start a big thumper again! Want to practice on that big XT600 you sold me?

I am really surprised you still have that. Seems like I get questions about dual-sports every time I ride. (3 weeks ago, as of today)

As mentioned before, been there done that. All of my shoulder therapy sessions ended with a 15 minute "manipulation" period. The chick was cool and showed some compassion. The gorilla, on the other hand, liked to see grown men cry. Nice guy 'til he got his mitts on you, then it was all pain and agony until he finished and I walked out the door. Repeat every other day for all too long.

Nope, not done and no party yet. Probably set up scaffolding in the next couple of days so I can get the high stuff done. The rear is gonna be a real PITA; it's up there.

Apparently, this type of "manipulation" involves sedation, and severe stretching with medieval devices. They promise me that it won't hurt, until later.............

Sometimes this is necessary, though. And yes to sedation, but no to medieval devices, just the Dr's or assistants hands. If your body has laid down the scar tissue in a funky pattern, it might not ever stretch out properly. Of all the manipulations I've seen of young/healthy individuals, there was not one that was worse off for it. The folks that get into trouble are the frail elderly, and most Dr's have learned not to manipulate these folks anymore. Mostly it helps to get you 'over the hump' motion-wise. It will be more sore esp. the couple of days afterwords, but use ice and keep it going.

One trick that I use on folks that have a headboard with slats or something to tie around behind them, is to lie in bed on your back, take a belt or two together, go around one of the slats behind you then bring the belt around the back of your thigh, and let gravity bend your knee over 20-30 minutes, a couple of times of day if you have the time. A prolonged stretch tends to work better IMHO then killing yourself for a few minutes trying to get it as far back as you can on your own. Let me know how things are going..

That's the type of manipulation the doc told me:

1. They can do it.
2. You can do it.
3. I can do it..... and I think you'd prefer 1 and/or 2.

They did part of it, and I opted out when I was seeing no noticible progress for the bux I was spending. Started going to the exercise room at the Y forced myself to work the arm in ways that sort of replicated what I was doing in therapy, but more focused. It worked. Only "issues" now are a sagging shoulder (common I hear) and being able to predict the weather. Other than that, full motion. After the sling came off, I was lucky if I could get it past 10 deg.

I like this idea, Mike, and I'll try to get it in place tomorrow. Thanks!

It's got to beat 20 minutes of screaming every other day.

Ok, looks like you guys are still around, just a quite few days on the forum.

I only had a few days home between underways so we just hung around the house and I spent a lot of time on the back porch sipping cool ones and surfing ADV.

When I get back next week I may drag Tom up that way on a bcak road ride and stop in to see the progress.

Anyone we know?

Guy,
Have you heard of any of your friends in COG wadding a new Concours near Sugar Grove, WV this last weekend?

I went over to see B.E. Coyote on his new property and he told me about it. Some guy lost it in the turns coming up the mtn from Sugar Grove and totaled the bike. Apparently he was okay, but not the Connie.

Other than that, we had a great time at the Farm. Caught almost every fish in the pond, twice. The sunfish are now bigger than your whole hand, and are about 1 lb a piece. The hops are doing great too. Had to build a trellis and start training the runners up the lines. They are already about 18" long.

I can't wait until the fall when I can swap fresh hops (Cascade, Fuggle, Mt. Hood and Willamette) for fresh homebrew. Anyone interested?

jeff

I can see exactly what happened. Guys do that in Petersburg a lot. Spend huge gobs of money on chrome and getting the wheel base stretched. Then find out they won't turn sharp anymore! If he had't stretched that front end he'd probably made that turn........
