    3 months down and I am 94 degrees. I have another appt. in mid Feb. Doc says swelling needs to go down more. May need MUA then. How can you have a MUA and you are still 90 degrees? They should bend it 125 while under sedation. What does your Doc say ?

    I'm having he mua next week. How bad is it? I'm stuck at 97 now. Thought after the manipulation you were supposed to be immediately increased.

      MUA—Movement Under Anesetic ! Put you to sleep and place you on your stomach, and push the leg to your butt. This forceably tears all the scar tissue loose, Physical therapy must follow daily to keep it from going back. There will be pain that will have to be controlled with medication.
