Dr. Robert Ference discusses the X10 Knee Recovery System™ and how he uses it for his patients after total knee replacement surgery in Michigan.
An orthopedic surgeon spotlight – interviews with knee surgeons.
More and more I was alarmed at the growing number of people getting early knee replacements. We have the baby boomers tripping into 65 and over. There’s three quarter of a million of these things done right now. That is scheduled to double in a few years
Generally after a knee surgery when your knee joint is swollen, there is a lot of exudation and fluid built up. These fluids can ultimately result to a scar tissue formation wherein your range of motion can be restricted or maybe even making it hard for you to regain your range of motion.
A scar is the marking that remains after tissue damaged from a cut, burn, or other wound has healed. Scar formation is a natural process. Scars result from replacement tissue being somewhat structurally and functionally different than the original tissue that was injured.
