Rehab

My first rehab visit included massage therapy, stretching, strength and balance exercises, and hydrotherapy. I'm on my third week post op and though my right knee and leg feels better I still don't put much pressure on it so the exercises would be good to increase range of motion and flexibility and strengthen my muscles.

It's a lot of work but I do get treats while doing the strength and balance exercises. Too bad, mommy wasn't able to take a picture or video since she was giving me treats during the exercises.




It was fun but tiring. When I got home I went straight to bed.
Have a great week.
