Thu, Mar 7 9:16pm · Cold Laser Therapy for Scar Tissue After Knee Replacement? in Joint Replacements

I’m so glad! I continue to improve. It’s crazy after everything I’ve done to heal, to have such a relatively passive approach help so much. This week I made the most strides as my Dr did cupping surrounding my knees. The next day I woke up and was significantly better. Couldn’t be happier!

I go twice a week. I really have seen a decrease in pain- particularly the nerve pain that I experience in my thighs at night. Since you’re only a month out, you’re still likely in for some pain, but it may help. I’ve also noticed my gait has become more natural. Give it a shot!

@babette – I was curious if you gave laser treatments a try. I’m doing acupuncture, dep tissue massage, myofacial release and Graston technique .gor my scar tissue. I have definitely seen improvement, but I’m a year out of TKR and was considering giving Lazer a shot. I haven’t looked into the cost yet. My chiropractor is just beginning to do it. Not sure if i’m Going to be his Guinea pig as he’s just getting his two hour certification this week. I can’t believe that’s all the training that’s needed…

@hoover I have Had significant nerve pain after my double TKR. Particularly at night, nerve pain throughout my legs would keep me awake. My doctor first prescribed gabapentin at 100 mg and that did nothing. At 300 I Was finally able to sleep. Hope it helps you

I was covered in rashes on my back and the back of my arms in the hospital. I’ve never had anything like this before. We never figured it out. I brought my own sheets from home which seemed to help, but not sure if it was related. I was surprised that no one was alarmed by it.
