Dead Lifts in PT...

Hey all, I'm 4 months post micro-D. Started PT at 2 months, and have been very happy with the results (gradual).

This past week, my therapist added a new exercise, which I'm a little uneasy about. She has me repetitively bending at the waist (knees straight), deadlifting 16 lbs (8 in each hand), 2 sets of 12... up down, up down.

Is this kosher 4 months after surgery... or ever? I was always told always bend at the knees, never the waist.

Thanks!

    When in doubt, ......and I think you ask a very good question.....call doctor to double check his instructions to PT and your activity level and possible restrictions.

    Doctor is there to help you understand everything that is going on with you and his orders in what kind of p/t you are doing.
    You are ultimately caregiver for your body.

    I'd be curious to know if your doctor thinks it is kosher. Please keep us posted
