I asked last week if anyone had heard of that other type therapy. Well, I went to a free consult session last Friday. I did a half hour of PT while hooked up to this ARP machine, which is similar to an e-stem on steroids. I broke a serious sweat doing it, and walked out of the office without my compression stocking on. I had less swelling for the following 3 days, and less pain. It felt less of a "foreign object" The only downfall was that I had cramps in my legs that night...I used muscles I haven't used in a LONG time! So....I went back today and asked if we could do it again. He said sure. We did a slightly different exercise, more focused on the joint. Again, half hour workout, broke a sweat, and it feels GREAT afterwards. So...I signed on to do his program - 10 sessions. We will see how it goes. I am not not NOT ditching the PT I've already done. I don't think I could have done this therapy any sooner than I am because of the damage done to my muscles and ligaments - those needed time to heal and reattach - but I am really wondering if this won't help me get past the roadblock I've encountered recently... I'll keep ya posted.
