A Stiff Knee in Houston, Texas
The unexpectedly difficult knee recovery of W.L. Bane.
When all else failed, the X10 solved the problem
In his 73th year W.L. Bane finally had his right knee replaced. He might have done it a few years prior, but put it off until he felt it was the right time. His right knee and hip had been through a lot over the years including a broken femur and two meniscus surgeries. He eventually had to stop running. In 2012 he had to stop taking long walks. So on November 26, 2018 he had a right total knee replacement. On December 31, 2018 he had to undergo a followup Arthroscopy/Manipulation Under Anesthesia. On January 31, 2019 he went through another Manipulation Under Anesthesia. At that point his surgeon said that was it – no more MUA’s or other procedures. His only answer was going to have to be physical therapy.
Declining Knee Performance
With each procedure WL’s knee seemed to be worse off. His range of motion declined and the pain and stiffness persisted each time he went back to the hospital for more procedures. Having a stiff knee in Houston was not what W.L. had expected. He began to scour the internet for a better rehab answer. That is when he found X10.

And after a second Manipulation Under Anesthesia. W.L. has a lot to say about the value of a proper recovery and what it means to him going forward. After all he did not spend all this time and energy on a knee replacement surgery just to limp around.
