The last thing she expected were knee Manipulation Under Anesthesia complications… in Lois’ case a patellar tendon tear. A lady with a great attitude and a fascinating life story this is Part 1 of a two part interview. We interviewed Lois right after her Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA) and we will chat again after she completes her full recovery.
AVOID MANIPULATION UNDER ANESTHESIA (MUA)
There is hope to avoiding a Manipulation Under Anesthesia. The X10 Knee Recovery System™ stands alone in its ability to accomplish this challenging task.
The key principles here are FREQUENCY of movement to a CHALLENGING flexion or extension angle WITHOUT PAIN. The key to the success of the X10 is its unique ability to feel a patients tightness (measured by lbs. of pressure) and make instant adjustments. This protects the patient from going too far too fast.
We are pleased to share this interview from The Bee’s Knees Podcast and KNEE RADIO 1. Podcast host PJ Ewing interviews Larry Sallings from Texas. PJ and Larry explore getting back to life a year after TKA.
Help! I’m stuck!
Yes, that was me nine weeks post surgery for total knee replacement. I could not get past 100º on my own or 105º with the therapist. For several years I had been going to the gym three or four times a week for yoga, Pilates, stretch and flex, and interval classes, so this degree of motion was not acceptable to me.
The total knee replacement (TKA) was on December 3, 2019. By mid-January, it was apparent that the recovery had stalled. On February 4, 2020, two months after his knee replacement, at only 88º of flexion, Gary started on X10.
The new X10 patented technology provides an increase in flexion after standard physical therapy has failed. The X10 is not surgical, does not require anesthesia, is not painful, and does not require additional physical therapy upon completion.
Both of my knees were injured on 9/11. I was crushed in Tower Two when it collapsed. I had immediate surgeries, right after 9/11. On August 21, 2019, I had my left knee replaced. It was robotic surgery. Everything went well with the surgery and the replacement, but the recovery was a different story.
Everything I had heard of that scared me, also I was not able to take anymore time off of work. I was searching online for exercises and things to do, and the X10 kept popping up on my searches. Not knowing what it was, finally after about the third time of it popping up I said, “All right, I have to check this out.”
When the recovery stalls around six weeks after knee surgery patients naturally get upset about the whole thing. I regularly hear the words “I wish had had never had this surgery. I’d rather go back to my bone-on-bone self.” And I know this can be fixed.
When 25% of knee replacement patients who have the procedure known as the MUA need to have a second one you know that the procedure is highly flawed at solving a knee bending problem. For Bruce the job was to avoid a THIRD MUA. To make sure his knee recovery did not just go on and on we brought in the big guns… our X10 Knee Recovery System™.
