There are many things you can do prior to surgery to help yourself be as prepared as possible and therefore help to make your recovery process as easy as possible. This is a must listen for anyone with a knee surgery upcoming.
The type of anesthesia used during a surgical procedure will depend on a number of factors, but primarily the nature of the procedure and your medical history. Beyond this, you may be offered a choice of options, and those who anticipate being anxious during the procedure may wish to opt for a greater level of sedation.
Amazed, stunned, and speechless, hope rising up in my heart, as a whole new sense of what’s possible for people struggling with those “sticky knees“… for YEARS.
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.
Don rolled a dump truck and was thrown from the cab of the vehicle. He was in a wheelchair for months. The X10 Knee Recovery System™ was able to help Don’s knee and, surprisingly, his hip as well. In addition to all of his injuries, Don was facing a very challenging ACL LCL Knee Recovery.
My experience with the X10 began one rainy afternoon in April, 1974. My boyfriend and I (now husband of 44 years) were riding his motorcycle when we were broadsided by a car. I remember the impact, sliding on the wet pavement towards the intersection.
I went from my bedroom using a walker, walking into the room with the X10 getting up onto that machine. When I got off the machine, it felt better. Then I progressed to a cane and then to no assistive tools. It was definitely a comfort in knowing that you could go back the next day or the next afternoon and really see visible progress.
The total knee replacement (TKA) was on December 3, 2019. By mid-January, it was apparent that the recovery had stalled. On February 4, 2020, two months after his knee replacement, at only 88º of flexion, Gary started on X10.
Learn how to walk and you will support this new knee that you’re about to get. My walking program quickly became about alleviating pain, but I quickly learned that no one knows how to walk correctly!”
