I have what I'm hoping is not too dumb of a question. How do you know what your range of motion is after a TKR and working on rehab? It's fairly easy for me to figure out 0 degrees and 90 degrees and then interpolate something more or less than that. Is there a gauge? Right now I can bend my knee to what I think is around 120+ degrees based on something between 90 degrees and another 45 degrees from their. Psst…I'm all in on guestimates but was wondering how others figure out what their flexion is.

Happy Friday – John

I never measured on my own. I just went off of what the PT people were telling me when they used their little measuring tool (goniometer?). Admittedly, it never felt too accurate but had to be close, right?

Hi @johnbishop – both of my physical therapists (in-home and outpatient) measured my ROM with a special little tool on our first appointment and our last. They put it in my chart. I bet if you ask for your records you will see it there. I think it is one of the metrics they use to measure progress.
