Physical Therapist, Lisa Alarcon, explains how to manage and minimize swelling and scar tissue after knee replacement in this essential interview.

The next phase however proved to go NOT so well, and for one reason or another, Frank ended up living with a 102 – 103 degrees of flexion for the next 2+ years. “Normal” flexion for most of us is somewhere between 135 – 140 degrees, with nothing hindering us.
Frank was stuck!
