Venetia had decided to put off having knee replacement surgery indefinitely.
KNEE SURGERY RECOVERY
When you have total knee replacement (TKR) surgery, recovery and rehabilitation is a crucial stage. In this stage, you’ll get back on your feet and return to an active lifestyle.
The 12 weeks following surgery are very important for recovery and rehab. Committing to a plan and pushing yourself to do as much as possible each day will help you heal faster from surgery and improve your chances for long-term success.
Halley Orthopedic Products was founded in Southeast Michigan in 2005. The company’s objective was simple: improve the results of knee surgery through new rehabilitation technology.

To walk properly you need that zero degrees, so that your heel can hit the ground first. After surgery, sometimes what happens is your brain can start sending messages to the leg on how it should move and where it is in space. Your leg can sometimes have a delay on that message. It’s almost like your muscles have to relearn what their job is.
So transition your brain from old school therapy to the X10 program. It blows my mind every time. When working with knee patients so many of them move so quickly to 0º and 115º. And you’re just thinking, Oh my goodness!
