The last thing she expected were knee Manipulation Under Anesthesia complications… in Lois’ case a patellar tendon tear.

It took Nancy 13 days to get well. Without the Biodex machine at the clinic. Without a physical therapist. Without the pain. Nancy followed our program, worked daily with her X10 Patient Recovery Coach, dedicated herself to her recovery.
For me it was a game changer. I was at a point six weeks post surgery where I truly felt that at 67 years old this might be how I was going to finish my life was just sort of hobbling around, and hope I didn’t hurt the other knee by doing that, but it gave me such a new lease on life. I’m 68 years old, soon to be 69, and I can see myself working for the next 10 years as long as I continue to enjoy it as I do, and I am literally pain free.
