The information I am sending you is a record of the stretching for the knees and the dates and rate of increasing range of movement. All of this was accomplished with a variety of exercises, and painful but successful forced stretching of the knee ligaments.
The ankle weights you saw in the photo album were used as a constant tension on the knees. But it was also necessary to apply more painful stretching pressure using my hands as the pulling force.
The measurements I am giving you are reasonably but not necessarily scientifically accurate. Also, as a form of personal encouragement I always took the measurements after a session of stretching. Better for the morale!
I recently played tennis with Terry Salo, another one of your success stories and I know he would want me to extend his greetings and heartfelt thanks.
I am currently around 130' for both knees.
Taking measurements of the original knee photos I had sent you it looks like my left knee had 106' and the right knee 92'. Upon returning to Canada I did go to a therapist who said that the exercises I was doing were what he would have recommended. Also, he said that 2' more range of motion a month was probably all I could hope to accomplish.
Thank you and all the best from John and Rosa.
