I completed my fourth acupuncture session yesterday. Going into it, my knee was feeling much better, but there was still pain. Also, I tended to easily feel like I was hyper-extending it doing noting amazing....just walking. On a sidewalk. Slowly.
By today, however, I have no pain at all. Stiffness? A bit. Also, I am still swollen behind the knee to the point that I cannot sit back on my heels. I'm also feeling more grounded. Is that acupuncture? Mental rest from not having pain? Better weather? I'm not sure. What I am sure of is that my doctor has assured me that this is too early for the synvisc shot to be working. I'm doing more yoga too, because I have more range of motion and less pain. Yoga leads to more range of motion and less pain. See the cycle I'm finally able to jump into like a game of double-Dutch jump rope??
I'm moving along cautiously optimistic.
