Physical Therapy in Charlottesville for Knee
Sit in a firm standard chair with arm rests.
Shift forward until your buttocks are near the front of the seat, and place your feet firmly on the floor with your toes under your knees.
Shift your body weight forward slightly towards your toes as you stand up.
Try not to use your hands.
To sit, stand with the back of your legs very close to the edge of the chair. Bend your knees and lean your torso forward slightly, as you reach your buttocks towards the back of the chair. Lower yourself into the seat with control without using your hands.
If you must use your hands, grasp the armrest as you lower yourself down to the seat using your legs.
Repeat as advised by your PT@acac Physical Therapist.
