Re: Pre/Post-Surgery Strengthening

Thanks both of you. Preciate the input. She has thought of seeing a physical therapist. One of our friends is actually a PT, but we wanted to get input from a bunch of different sources and I know when it comes to rehab, crossfit is often at odds with a lot of doctors who will tell their patients not to squat because they've heard bad things about the squat from patients who hurt themselves doing it wrong.

So basically, pre - surgery, she needs to be doing some squatting, step ups and some good hamstring strengthening.

Post Surgery is going to be all physical therapy. Sound about right? Thanks guys.
