I will never go through painful PT again. One of our newer members, @Nivea , has a surgeon who doesn’t send his patients to PT, he tells them to just use the new knee, and she’s doing very well, as have his other patients.I just DO NOT want to go through that painful PT again
You don't have to. Many members through the years I've been on Bonesmart never took PT and ended up just fine and they did it without all the pain of PT. I was blessed to have a surgeon who never pushed PT. He gave me a prescription for it, which I threw away. My OS never even asked about PT on my 3 return checkups! Of course, he knew I was a single lady who had to take care of myself and obviously trusted that I would not be just lying around all the time..I just DO NOT want to go through that painful PT again. ROM did improve over time and it was not the PT exercises.
You will find this approach to be a much better one and with less pain and swelling. Would anyone exercise a broken leg? Well, a knee replacement has two sawed-off ends, drilled out and foreign material pounded into it. All the muscles and tendons had to be pulled out of the way while this implant was being installed. No wonder it takes up to a year for complete healing and aggressive PT only makes most of us worse!let it recover on it owns on with daily activity
