It is normal for the extension to take longer to come all the way in than flexion does. Those muscles and tendons in the back of the knee are huge and take longer to stretch out. But, your extension is amazing at only 3 weeks out. I can't imagine why your doctor even mentioned that. Most all of us wished we had had that at 3 months, must less 3 weeks! Celebrate your great extension!My knee is still swollen and tight. Is it easier to get to full extension than to boost flexion number?
Aggressive PT will just cause more swelling and pain, making your ROM worse. Swelling is the main thing that affects ROM, not an unfit knee.I just want my knee to really settle down and do not want an aggressive PT appt.
