Physical Therapy for Post-Limb Lengthening Surgery Rehab

By Victor Egonu | Leg Lengthening Surgery

Now obviously some muscles will be tighter than others depending on which bones you get lengthened, I think you should do all of them if possible regardless of the segment you get done as muscles are linked in a kinetic chain and everything is linked in one way or another.
