Post Knee Replacement Surgury Case Study

A client came to us 5 years post knee replacement surgery. She was unable to straighten the knee and had been limping and reported significant pain while walking. She also had the other knee replaced with no complications. She had followed the usual prescribed rehab and physical therapy but it hadn’t helped.

With weekly massages focused on the hamstrings, quadriceps and calf muscles her range of motion has improved and she is able to walk without pain.

It is interesting when a problem we are not positive we can help walks through the doors. But with relaxing the soft tissue and increased circulation massage is incredibly healing and we have seen many complex problems become resolved and pain go away. It is cases like this that make being a massage therapist so rewarding!

In her words “The magic of massage put the pep back in my step!”
