Week 1 trying to fix my knees over here.
This week, my therapist taped my patella using more manipulation than last time. I could literary sense the way that at times my knee was fighting with the way the kinesiotape wanted to direct it.
No pain except a day later – one of the tapes was too long and it snagged at a ligament that it shouldn't have snagged to. I just cut off the problematic piece and enjoyed from then on great support of the joints.
I practiced jumps in ballet class. I even did it without holding on to the barre, trying to minimize the kinetic force that just loves to make a stop at my inner knee because of the way it's built and the way the patella tracks over it.
The change I see is minimal, but what I feel is not minimal at all. More strength and stability. Last night while teaching my yoga class, I even spontaneously kneeled down and sat on my ankles while explaining concepts. I haven't sat down like that in six years.
I have one more week to go before deciding does this have a point for me and how to continue.
No miracle cures here folks, just a desperate lady trying to dance.
