Rachael had a full session in the pool. Rachael told Katie that her quads had been feeling tight all week. Katie did some exercises on Rachael’s legs and knee. She expressed concern that there was some damage to Rachael’s knee, she had seen Rachael’s knee lock and snap back, and noticed some inflammation. She advised that the change to now doing transfers exclusively by hoist means that Rachael’s knee should be exercised every day to prevent further, more serious damage. Katie told Rachael that Wheelchair Services in Preston will contact her re: footplates.
