My husband had a partial knee (Makoplasty) in April of this year. He was very compliant with PT but still had to go back in for manual manipulation. He has a great "bend" in his knee, but he walks very stiff legged and complains of the "tight band around his knee." his major pain is on the outside of his knee (not where the scar is, and not where the joint was replaced- medial side). The joint looks good on an xray, but appears to be more of a scar tissue or soft tissue issue some say. We have tried everything... deep tissue massage, ART, stretch therapy (he has a lot of muscle and not a lot of flexibility), yoga, chirpractor work, and multiple PT's. The Dr says to wait a year and see where things are, but the frustration level is so high. I read on a lot of threads about this feeling being common but I do not hear of a lot of solutions that are working for people. Any suggestions on where to go from here would be so greatly appreciated. Do you suffer from this? Did it go away or what did you do to remedy the issue? problems walking stiff legged? ETC. Thanks again!!
