Jo’s Knee Replacement – Complete Recovery

Josephine got back to normal quickly after a total knee replacement surgery by Dr. Jason Cochran

LANSING, Michigan — Jo is an avid tennis player. Over time arthritis kicked in and her game was compromised. It was time for knee replacement and she turned to Dr. Jason Cochran.

After surgery in the hospital Jo’s range of motion was very poor. When she got home her bending was only 60º. That was the starting point. On the X10 she jumped to the “head of the class” on range of motion, was walking stairs, and was at 121º range of motion at only 15 days post surgery.

X10 Update April 2014

X10 Research Results Published

With all the knees replaced each year you would think that everyone recovers quickly, has great mobility, and that is that. We took a deep look at a recently published review of all available studies on patient recovery from knee replacement. This is what we found:

After SIX WEEKS the average ROM (range of motion) across the country is a lowly 83º. At 83º, 84º, 85º you cannot even sit properly, much less get up from a chair, walk up (or down) stairs.

Retraining Your Muscles after Total Knee Replacement

Neuromuscular reeducation refers to the attempt to retrain the neuromuscular system to function properly. The basis of this idea is that the formation of certain patterns of communication between muscles and nerves allow people to perform simple everyday acts such as climbing stairs. Normal patterns of movement can be disrupted by injuries or may be impaired in people with certain medical conditions. The general aim is either to re-establish normal patterns of movement in injured people or to create normal patterns of movement.

There was great hope at one time for Continuous Passive Motion

In the 1970’s & 80’s machines called CPM’s (Continuous Passive Motion) were developed to try to aid in knee replacement recovery. Doctors used CPM’s because the concept of early motion after knee replacement made sense. Since then many studies have evaluated their effectiveness.

Post Knee Replacement Recovery with the X10

Learn in this video why X10™ is a revolution in knee rehabilitation post Total Knee Arthroplasty.

Marvelous strides have been made and knee replacement has become a safe and almost commonplace surgery.

The Long Road to Recovery. Believe it or not when knee replacements started to be performed in the late 1960’s patients were put in a cast for three months while the cement that held the joints in the bones “set.” And then, once the cast was removed, patients began to build their range of motion… of course scar tissue had set in and it was too late to do anything about it. We have come a long way from those early days. Orthopedic surgeons encourage movement within hours of surgeon today.
