Advice needed please
« on: July 11, 2013, 07:44:06 PM »
Hi all, I am new to this site and desperately need some advice and help!
 I had a skiing accident in February 2013 and tore my meniscus 1x bucket handle tear, 1x large parot beak tear and one tear of my gastrocnemius. I had meniscus repair but after 6 weeks my ROM  was only40degrees so I had a debridement and was told I had lots of scar tissue. Since then I have done lots of physio but my knee, after 12 weeks post op 2 still only has 80 degrees movement and has been this way for the last 6 weeks. We are now being told a MUA is going to be done, is this my only option? At physio they are trying to push my leg past current ROM of degrees but the pain is excruciating and it wont budge! My patella has lowered and my quadriceps are showing signs of atrophy. At the the pain is quite intense on my knee and around my thigh and calf. Any advice would be gratefully received.  :'(
