Avoid Knee Manipulation Under Anesthesia

A surgeon will evaluate the knee at six weeks post-surgery. If the results are poor, a  Manipulation Under Anesthesia may be ordered. You can avoid the MUA if you adopt a rehabilitation program designed to deliver range of motion gains without causing new therapeutic swelling.

Christine Avoids an MUA

Christine has a lot of people depending on her including five highly active kids. Trips to the Zoo, park, even school had become big challenges due to two bad knees. Decided to tackle one knee at a time Christine chose a great surgeon (Dr. Scott) and went forward with the surgery.

Six weeks later her recovery was less than perfect. She could not bend her knee very well (extension was good, but flexion was challenging), and now it seemed like she was going to have to go forward with another procedure to bend her knee while she was under anesthesia. And then she would start her physical therapy over again. This was not the recovery and rehab she had expected.

Christine jumped online, found the X10, and brought it up to Dr. Scott. He was more than supportive. She decided to rent the X10 for a few weeks to fix the problem before it became a major issue. Within a few days she was using the X10 in her home with the help and guidance of her Patient Recovery Coach, Lisa. She met with her surgeon just a few days after starting on X10 and already he could see the improvement.

Recovery in Two Weeks

It took just two weeks and Christine’s knee was bending like everyone had hoped. No need for a Manipulation Under Anesthesia. She was back on track, ready for the final stage of her recovery. And ready to get to the other knee… this time with the X10 in her home right after surgery.
