Hi,
This is my 1st post. I had a total TKR on 6/18/12. Due to complications PT was delayed. I started 3 wks after going 3 x a week. My ROM is only about 90-95
I have a lot of scar tissue build up so amm scheduled for a manipulation on 10/24. I will only have 3 days of PT after as I have to travel to PA for another medical procedure that couldn't be rescheduled until end of DEc which would be to late. My concern is keeping my knee bending while in backseat fo car. Also hospital stay is for 1 day unrelated to moving knee. Any suggestions. I don't want to lose any progress manipulation may give me.
Looking forward to any responses Thank you

Re: Edie

Thank you, I will ask Pt and have my daughter push on my knee to bend it back. Hopefully that will work. I don't want to lose any advantage the manipulation may give me.
