|Muscles Pushing Knees Together
- I press with very low force, my right foot ankle against my left foot instep. This bends my right leg sideways, using the muscles for pressing my knees together. My right leg knee is slightly bent. The gap between the upper and lower bones open about 2 to 3 millimetres( on the medial side). (I can feel the top of the tibia and the space that opens.) (After 7 months the opening is much less.
- I hold pressure 5 seconds then release it. (The plasma fluid in-flow time.
- Then I quickly flex and straighten my right leg 5-10 times in the normal direction to mix the plasma and synovial fluid. It helps if the limits in both directions are reached.
- I repeat this process 4-6 times until I feel the fluid fill the space. It feels cool (in the temperature sense of the word) as I feel the fluid spread across the joint space. No more is necessary.
