The numbers in the bend and straight leg are driving me nuts.
I started Therpy in Utah for three weeks with being told I need a bend of 100 before I left for Arizona for the winter. I got to 104 and was pushing hard to get to 120, what they want. My straight was good from the hospital so they didn't worry about it. When we measure I would pull back with the green straps and they would give the last push with their hand, and it would hurt. I get to Therpy in Arizona and my straight was at 8 they say and want it to be the most important to get to 0. We measured and I was 8 and bend of 99 but they don't want me to pull with the strap and they don't push its all my foot and leg. I am three weeks here and am now 2 and 111 and he tells me today that my bend may be all I will get. I am so confused. All I have heard is I need to be at 120 to play tennis or pickleball so 111 is not going to cut it yet he also said the average bend is 114 and the sports thing would be how much strength I build in my legs together. iM at the point I don't know who to believe or what to believe, or how to get to the 120.
I stretch several times a day and exercise twice a day with a walk or pool time added.
