    TKR 6 weeks post op after TKR

    I really like that chart. Even though it's fallen out of favor with some, I'm a huge fan of the cpm machine. Steadily increasing range of motion on the CPM each week really works well.

    TKR 2 weeks post op/Mako Robotic TKR

    I've had back surgery, shoulder surgery, and three knee surgeries. I had lots of orthopedic problems at a young age. In my twenties I simply couldn't believe how awful all of my physical therapists were. I kept thinking "Maybe they are just bad in my local area. They can't be this bad...

    TKR CPM Machine After Knee Replacement

    With my MACI procedure I wish I would have used the CPM more. I firmly believe it's beneficial for some recoveries. My insurance charges $29 a month to rent it.

    PKR When is Click or Clunk Not Normal?

    Sounds completely impossible to me, not simply ambitious.

    Reverse Shoulder Replacement The first day post op

    My apologies if I'm the only one who doesn't get it, but why is it called a Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement? Isn't it just a Total Shoulder Replacement?

    beng5124, I noticed you never responded to my last post. Do you have any follow up information?

    Revision TKR Four Months Out and Still Can't Walk

    My experience over the years with CPM use has been 100% positive if used properly. I always started on a low degrees and worked up slowly though. I've noticed some PT's encourage too rapid of increases in the degrees every week though.

    PKR PKR or TKR? Conflicting opinions

    I was down for months even with a minor knee arthroscopy!

    TKR Which way should I go?

    Have you discussed a biologic option with any doctor like MACI or de novo?

    OATS -MACI MACI vs autograft OATS for post haematological transplant patient

    I'm about 9 months post op. MACI requires some time non weight bearing and lots of time on the CPM machine. I am still working through a lot of scar tissue from the mini arthrotomy. Maybe I wasn't aggressive enough early on so I grew too much scar tissue. Maybe I was worried about protecting...

    OATS - MACI My right knee MACI procedure

    I've had three knee surgeries. The first two were simply scam surgeries where I was promised I'd be fully healed and later learned they were worthless surgeries. I simply can't believe how long it takes to recover from what seemed to be even minor arthroscopic procedures. For me, 15 weeks...

    OATS -MACI MACI vs autograft OATS for post haematological transplant patient

    I've had a MACI procedure, but I'm confused by your question. I've never heard of an auto graft from the Iliac crest being combined with MACI.

    TKR Knee stiffness...Does it get better?

    Sounds like a paradox. A CPM machine can be your best friend for the first 6 months post surgery.

    TKR Feel I’m disimproving

    I'm a MACI patient but I can't even imagine walking as much as you are walking in such a short time. I will never understand why so many physical therapists seem to think hyper aggressive therapy is the proper course of treatment

    PKR JusticeRider’s rehab adventure

    My health insurance let's me rent a continuous passive motion machine for $21 a month. I love it. I use it a couple of hours every day. Any stiffness I've had is easily fixed with gentle CPM use.

    OATS - MACI Almost 7 months out from “triple MACI” procedure

    What did they start your CPM at degree wise on day one? I'm a MACI patient and it's been incredibly difficult to find physical therapists skilled in MACI. You seem to have lucked out and found a good team.

    OATS - MACI Almost 7 months out from “triple MACI” procedure

    I like to read MACI studies and I'm just perplexed that your doctor gave you such low odds. The study results seem to indicate better outcomes than your doctor suggested.

    OATS - MACI Almost 7 months out from “triple MACI” procedure

    MACI has been clinically tested on patients over 50. I wonder why you were told 44 is too old.
