... con una carga parcial de pesas...

A falta de mayores datos, me parece que se trata de pacientes a los que se aplica esfuerzo por medio de pesas.

Me da la impresión de que se trata de un texto de ortopedia y se refiere a la carga a la que se somete a la extremidad dañada (un miembro inferior), es decir si se le permite soportar de forma total o parcial el peso del cuerpo del paciente.
Parece que aqui se refiere a que a los pacientes se les mantenía soportando parcialmente el peso de su cuerpo (por el contexto lo sabrás, si es que habla de que usaban muletas o algun medio de apoyo) hasta que eran capaces de avanzar.
Un saludo.
