I reluctantly went back to physiotherapy today. While in previous years my goal has always been to get back into competitive shape, the only thing I could think about this time was not wanting to feel like a 50 yr old! (I'm in my twenties). I have a pretty "bad" case of chrondomalacia, and the P/T found a big lump of scar tissue on the quad. tendon in my bad knee. The effect of this apparently is that it keeps my knee cap rotated about 20-30 degrees! The P/T said that he'd have me in better shape in 4-5 soft-tissue treatments, unfortunately, I have to pay for this round of physio "out-of-pocket" since my insurance won't cover it anymore. The cost isn't that prohibitive, I can afford it, even though I have better things to spend my money on. So my question is whether this P/T can actually be of benefit to me? Yes, the physiotherapist is a professional, but also a businessman. I have to question whether this will worth it, or whether it'll be like the 3-4 other physiotherapist I've seen, but who have never been able to help me out.
