Re: tkr 79 days ago

I was told that pain control is essential for pt progress. It does not r however take away the pain of manual therapy as thr therapists works at increasing your flexibility. If your surgeon won't help start trying over the counter pain meds until you get some relief. Goof luck & keep us posted. I am hoping for a pain and flex breakthrough next week, my 5th post TKR.
