Quad lag
« on: February 05, 2021, 08:40:09 PM »
Iím 16 weeks post op for right knee tka.. I had manipulation at 10 weeks which allowed me to reach almost 120 degree ROM.. My issue is quad lag of 18 degrees at this time.. Have been to physical therapy religiously and do my exercises at home as well..I am a 58 yr old physically active male who strengthened my quad thru exercise preparing for surgery.. My issue is my feeling of my knee giving out while walking down steps or down hill, uneven surfaces, getting in and out of vehicle and sometimes just walking on level surfaces..Had an EMG that showed no nerve issues.. Iím at a loss at what the problem is.. PT says I might have drop leg
Any help would be appreciated
