So back in early July I was diagnosed with advanced tendinosis distal quadriceps tendon via MRI. It was determined the that physical therapy was the best treatment and I was given the green light to continue road cycling as much / as hard as i wanted (head of sports medicine is also an avid cyclist) . I’ve been going to physical therapy 3x per week and while the routine listed below isn’t exactly a hardcore weight lifting program, I am wondering how much thrse 3 hours a week are contributing to my overall fatigue (which is definitely elevated).
Anyone else have similar experiences with PT? Or an I misattributing my source of recent fatigue?
