Dr. Fred Slete was told by a fellow dentist to explore new recovery technology for his total knee replacement. He chose to do knee pre-hab and rehab after knee replacement with the X10 Knee Recovery System.
Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis attacked my knee joint. Due to the extensive damage that had occurred, I chose to undergo a total knee replacement at the age of 29 to improve pain and my overall quality of life.
A pair of new running shoes, a freak indoor fall and there I was with a fractured patella. After surgery and 22 P.T. appointments I was stuck with poor range of motion and bleak prospects. I went to the internet to find a solution.
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.
“After the staples or sutures have been removed, and there is no seepage from the scar you can start with desensitization techniques and mobilizing the tissue around the scar. The sensation you feel when you massage your scar is one of strong pulling or light burning, NOT sharp pain. Scar massage should NOT feel like that.” – By Sharron Wass
