I went to the doctor on this past Thursday, and they told me that there was nothing else they could do for the chronic stiffness in my knee. I had TKR July 12, 2016, a MUA one month later, and a revision January 30.2017. I had two operations before TKR, and I'm prone to generating scar tissue at a rapid pace. I was issued a machine called a flexinator and I put my leg into it and it bends the leg at the knee. You pump it until you get a really good stretch and you're supposed to hold it in this position for ten minutes. It's very painful because it keeps your knee in a uncomfortable position and when I release the pressure, I can barely walk on my leg. I have to walk it out. The therapist told me that I have to get use to it, but my knee turns red and swells. Has anyone used this machine and what advice can you give me? I have trouble keeping the range of motion gained during my exercises.
