Has anyone had or ever heard of a procedure called the "MANIPULATION?"
Apparently because my knee was soo trashed and had a limited range of motion going into my TKR 10 days ago, the Physical Therapists and Doctors aren't quite happy with my 10 day ROM of 68°
They're saying if i don't get to 90-100° in the next 2 wks a MANIPULATION procedure may be ordered. When i heard what it was i almost soiled my blummers!
They put you under (twilight sleep) and the doctor CRANKS on your leg FULL MOTION 😮 While you don't necessarily feel it while you're under, I've heard you wake up SCREAMING like some prisoner at Gitmo getting waterboarded or electric prodes attached to their testicles 😫
Has anyone or does anyone know of this procedure "MANIPULATION?"
