Great info n very supportive. I'm in tkr 5 weeks now. I try to walk down the block every day even though it feels awkward. Knee just doesn't want to bend the way it should through normal walking. Been having trouble with bending the knee, up to 80-90degrees, depending on inflammation. I've gotten a few apps for positive reinforcement n relaxation. I have a lot of anxiety when going to pt, due to previous almost intolerable pain forcing knee to bend.. I've read a lot about passive vs aggressive ROM. So my new somewhat adjusted attitude helps. But still have that little gremlin in the back of my head who is not so encouraging. I do my exercises daily but think I may speak to my therapist about this other type of therapy. I know the aggressive initial therapy brought me to this point of tensing n fear of therapy. Found some good info from SBFPHC site. Showed me I'm not the only one in this boat. Anyone else going thru this type of tension n fear of not getting to where I think I should be. My therapist says I have a low tolerance for pain. I tend not to agree with her.... I KNOW my pt is painful when pushed to its limits.
