Student in need for info about arthrofibrosis
« on: October 22, 2004, 12:13:22 AM »
Hi there,
I am a fourth year PT student and am doing research on arthrofibrosis. I need some information about the PT that is done when arthrofibrosis has been diagnosed. Is there anyone out there who was treated with only PT alone? Is arthrofibrosis something that has to be treated with surgery? I hope some of you can help me. I am doing my studies in the netherlands and appartly the PTs here are not aware of arthrofibrosis. Some of them don't even know what it is.

Hope you can help. :)

Thanx,
Annemarie

PS: does anyone know of any books that deal with arthrofibrosis?

Try posting your question on the rehabedge forum.  It is for PT's and other rehab professionals.

http://www.rehabedge.com/cgi-bin/forums/ultimatebb.cgi

On this forum you'll get more of the patient's approach, while at rehab edge you'll get decent research and the professional approach.

You could also post it on the "scar tissue" section of this site.....(about two columns down from the "general section" on the main Bulletin Board menu for this site) there is a world of info on the subject there and also a lot of people who have it....

Good Luck
