Thu, Nov 7 8:49am · scar tissue after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

That’s why I’ve hesitated. I fear the same. I had them both manipulated 6 weeks post op, worked them constantly, did myofacial release therapy, and it just kept coming back. What was recovery like after you had the scar tissue removed? Did you have to do PT? I have about 100 flex. I don’t want to lose anymore…

Does anyone know how long after surgery you can have orthoscopic scar removal? I’m almost 2 years out. My right knee is great, but my left is keeping me awake at night. I still have pain on the inside part of the knee in the transition of straightening my leg and the feeling of tightness. Oh- and I never followed up with my surgeon after my surgery- felt a bit traumatized . Thanks!

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…
