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.
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. The result of years of research and development was the first model of the X10 Knee Rehabilitation Machine in 2011. Since then many thousands of knee patients have recovered using the X10™.
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!
We share an interview with Gina who had a tibial plateau fracture recovery with the X10. She started on the X10 ten weeks after the surgery when she was very disappointed with her recovery. Within two weeks she solved her knee surgery recovery problem.
Nick had an incident during his police work where his knee gave out on him. At that moment he realized that he could no longer do the job with his knee in its compromised condition. That started him on the road to total knee replacement.
Beverly Lynch had the first of two total knee replacement surgeries with Dr. David Mayo of Michigan Orthopedic Surgeons. She speaks about her surgery and recovery in this interview for The Bee’s Knees Podcast and Knee Radio 1.
Knee replacement surgery is extremely effective at eliminating osteoarthritic pain. But, recent research shows that, “Current practice of total knee replacement as performed in a recent U.S. cohort of patients with knee osteoarthritis had minimal effects on quality of life and QALYs (quality adjusted life years) at the group level.”
I’m an anesthesiologist in Lansing, Michigan. I’ve been here for 35 years. A bowlegged anesthesiologist. My story revolves around the fact that I tore my meniscus in my left knee in 1995. Knee Surgery Anesthesia.
If you want to get back into yoga (or maybe even begin yoga for the first time) after knee surgery, you are at the right place. Lauren Bingle has created two lovely yoga sets, each with you in mind. She presents her first set specifically for people with knee issues. Yoga exercises after knee surgery here.
My name is Merlin and I am a Management Consultant to the small business sector. I live in a small town in Western Maryland and have managed arthritis in the right knee for about 25 years and the left knee for about 15. I finally had a right knee replacement.
We need to pay attention to the culture of the practice and go with our gut. A really good surgeon is not only a skilled professional but one who puts the patient first.
