As usual the physio was no miracle cure. I was told what I new all along: if you want it to get better then you have to work at it, it is a gradual process, you will never attain the ideal that is in your head but with concerted effort you can come close. We had another interesting conversation regarding my brace. Essentially my knee ligaments are loose so to protect my knee I can strengthen the relevant muscles around my knee or wear my brace. The trouble with the brace is that the act of wearing it contributes to the weakening of the muscles. Another example of the opposition between short-term and long-term benefit. It seems that choosing pain and effort is often the most beneficial.
