Typical progression of activity then goes to gentle stretching and range of motion exercises usually begun weeks 1-2 with gentle strengthening in weeks 3-6. If all goes well, eccentric strengthening at 6 weeks with sport specific training and return to play thereafter.
There is no real "positive change" that is even expected at 2 weeks post injections, and in order to gain any purported safe benefits from this therapy, the steps of post injection rehab must still not be rushed.
BTW, from Reed's explanation of they "take the bad blood out, spin it if I’m not mistaken and put the good blood back in”, he seems to have no real concept (even in lay terms) how the injections are supposed to work.
Soooo where are we on this timeline? Sixth week? Eighth week?
And I understand the timeline is an estimate; Ed may meet it, he may beat it, or he might take longer. But where are we approximately?
