PATIENT SUCCESS STORY “One of my favorite patient populations to treat are those who come in after total knee replacement. This can be a very challenging and uncomfortable recovery at times, so it is always nice to see the improvement after patients put in the hard work. This person in particular also had to have a manipulation under anesthesia after the TKA as her range of motion was not returning even with PT intervention. At times the patient would get discouraged by her recovery process, but was recently able to take a vacation to Ireland where she did not let her injury hold her back. She was able to do all of the sightseeing that she wanted to do. She has also become better and more independent in managing her own symptoms.”
