Wed, Jul 1 11:29am · Just starting to use CBD oil as a rub on joints. Experiences? in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Yes, Thank-you. I understand that the CBD is more effective if it contains a combo of CBD & THC. Grass is legal here in Washington, so I'm going to try my local Pot Shop's variety. I'll let you know the results…

I am going to try the gummies next, as the topical rub has only minor effect on my pain.

I’m starting use of a CBD rub for my painful knee joints. Anyone having luck with that, and if you take edibles, what’s the dosage?

I am four months out from TKR and I am having stiffness upon rising from a couch and trying to walk, considerable pain walking and weight bearing. Steps are not fun especially descending. My left knee is just as bad and needs surgery so I'm suffering the double whammy. But I thought I would be a little more spry than I am. Walking like a cross between a robot and a wind-up toy.

Wed, Apr 8 12:08pm · 8 weeks Post TKR: Can I bear weight? Tips on improving mobility please in Joint Replacements

I finished all but my last three sessions with my PT group, with good progress. The increased pain of this last week has me a little concerned, cuz I guess I expect it to heal progressively-with no hills and valleys. I will call my ortho office for advice-although getting thru is somewhat problematic right now.

Thank-you! Its hard to know what to expect when you haven't been through this before-being isolated with all the 'what-ifs'. My second TKR will be much easier, knowing somewhat, what to expect.

I am doing flexion exercises and stretching. Don't have access to a stationary bike but perhaps I canstart riding my bike-(I'm on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State-so that is of course weather dependent :>)

Hi Group! I am 8 weeks post TKR, and my Physical Therapy Office closed (COvid-19) before my Rehab was complete. I have been pretty good about doing it on my own, but have some questions; I’ve been walking short distances since week 6-use the cane only for longer distance-up to half mile. Still have pain and stiffness, and I’m not sure I should be weight bearing very much. I would call my ortho office–but I have a feeling it would be faster get some answers from this site.
