Patella tendon torn
« on: November 17, 2016, 12:14:47 PM »
Hi everyone.
Quick question . I am 6 weeks post patella tendon repair.
The ortho has asked me to walk with the crutches still.
I thought after 6 weeks , I could get rid of the crutch and start some active therapy ( stationary bike). My ROM is at about 90 flexion. . I have a reinforced wire which is coming off in 3 weeks. So going above 90 flexion is hard.
Amy suggestions? Why so.many different ways for these Orthopedic surgeons.
Thanks :)
