    Manipulation after TKR
    kathcasc posted:
    I had a TKR 8 weeks ago. I have been going to PT 2X a week. I
    have also been following through with exercies at home. My bending is good but I am still having a problem with my extension. I went to
    the surgeon this morning and he wants me to continue with therapy
    for another month and then go back to him. If the extension is still
    not good then he suggested doing manipulation. Of course I am
    very concerned about the possibility of having this done. I really
    don't feel like being knocked out again. Has anybody had this done
    and if so did you find that if made a difference? Having gone
    through the knee replacement I will do whatever it takes to get the
    knee right but am hoping it doesn't come to that.
