An Interview with Dan de Angeli
Dan is an avid bicyclist and has been all his life.
If you were to tell Dan that he would have a rehab crisis six weeks after his total knee replacement, only to happily ride his bike 10 miles to visit his surgeon at 12 weeks post surgery, he would certainly not have believed you. Dan de Angeli was kind enough to sit down with PJ Ewing (X10 Recover Coach) to discuss his “knee surgery adventure” in the interview presented above. He covers a lot of ground in the interview. We learn how he used the X10 knee machine. We also hear how he journaled his way through his in-home therapy. And we explore the times when he turned to music to enrich his recovery.
