Luis’ Recovery Stalled after ACL Surgery. The X10™ Got Him Better

HACKENSACK, New Jersey — Luis found the X10™ at nine (9) weeks post ACL Repair and Micro-fracture Surgery. His surgeon, Dr. Deepan Patel, learned of the X10 and quickly supported Luis’ immediate use of the X10 in his home.

After completion of four weeks on the X10 (by week 13 post surgery), three 30-minute sessions per day utilizing 7 lbs. of pressure modulation, Luis was able to achieve the following:

Flexion: 120º
Greatly improved gait pattern with no crutches (pain-free)

Luis’ quest after ACL surgery, to avoid a manipulation (MUA), and to avoid the extreme PT pain that he had been experiencing began in earnest on the day the X10 arrived in his home.

Pain Management

Portrait of a Recovery Derailed
Perhaps I need to begin this article with a reminder that this is a personal journey and I make no claim that my conclusions are based on empirical research. Pain Management is possibly the most crucial aspect of the recovery process with any surgery. Effective pain management is the first layer of building that trust relationship that allows the patient to be an active partner in their own healing from the inception.

The Body’s Repair System After Knee Replacement

When the body repairs itself after a wound or deeply invasive surgery like a knee replacement it does so by creating new tissues that are very strong, but not elastic. The body cannot rebuild elastic tissue. Fibrosis is a proliferation of strong fibrous connective tissue that the body builds to replace the tissue lost in a knee replacement surgery.

During the earliest stage of repair the injured cells turn into adhesions, which are basically dead cells that need to be replaced.

“Total Knee Recovery: It Was The Perfect Storm”

Jim is near and dear to our hearts at X10! He was one of our very first patients. A preacher, wonderful father, grandfather and smart business man, Jim needed a quick recovery from his first knee surgery. He trusted our team and the X10. We were so delighted with his progress, as was Dr. Meisel and his therapy team led by Clare Clor at Complete Physical Therapy.

Missing the window to build range of motion

A CAUTIONARY TALE

October, 2013
Mel had a left knee replacement in 2011, before the X10™ knee machine was available. He put it off for as long as he could. He went through many of the usual steps including arthroscopic surgery to clean up his meniscus prior to deciding to go ahead with a surgery. Mel did three days of therapy for two months prior to his operation to prepare for the procedure which was really smart. We recommend that anyone who has the opportunity to prepare their knee for surgery do so to make rehab all the easier.

His goal for his knee replacement was simply to minimize the amount of time spent away from his office while getting back his ability to walk normally. Knowing that a TKA was upcoming he did his very best to plan out a smart recovery. The X10™ knee replacement machine is not yet widely available in Virginia, but Tommy’s persistence made us move (small) mountains to get a machine in his home for his recovery.
