results from manual manipulation of TKR
hockeyjohn posted:
It has been 1 week since my manipulation. It was bent to 125 degrees under anesthesia and I have been able to push it that far each day since. Not sure that it will go further until swelling is gone, but overall it was successful. Very happy and the procedure is completely painless. They knock you out and after 10 mins you awake with ice on knee and I went directly home and got on the motion machine bending to 120. The next day was no problem, a little tender but I didn't have to curtail my normal physical therapy and spent the day walking on it. If you are stuck, as I was at 113, this is the remedy that I would suggest. Good Luck.
