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.
