Started PT today

I'm 12 weeks post-op on a Brostrom procedure. I finally got a rx for PT and my first visit was today. She started with a few exercises and did some manipulation after. The doctor only approved 4 visits and she said that she won't get much progress with so few visits. After the two weeks are up she will try to convince him that I need more. My dorsiflexion/plantarflexion ROM are pretty close to normal. Two weeks ago I stepped wrong while going up stairs and foot went all the way down. It felt like a bad sprain, but after that my ROM was near normal. I must have broken up some scar tissue. I guess that's one way to get ROM back.
I can't believe that he prescribed so few visits, he was even hesitant to even prescribe any PT. I hope she can get more visits out of him.
