Swelling and Scar tissue creation are closely related. Learn how they are partners in getting in the way of knee surgery recovery from an expert in the field. Lisa Alarcon, Physical Therapist, has helped many thousands of knee patients recover well after surgery, in many cases with the help of The X10 Knee Recovery System.
Flexion is the number one challenge for most patients after any knee surgery. A lack of full knee flexion is the number one reason patients call us looking for an “X10 Intervention”
What happens after knee replacement when there is a lack of full knee extension? We explore this question in this installment of our series entitled ‘Threats to a Proper Knee Replacement Recovery’.
