I just had the procedure done on Friday. I had my ACl reconstructed on January 20th. I have had problems with my terminal knee extension which has caused a slight limp when I walk and jog. My knees naturally hyper extend. My good knee is a -4 my acl knee was about a +1. Doctor said he did not think knee would gain hyper extension with therapy and suggested the manipulation and scope. Doctor said it went well and he was able to get knees symmetrical after he removed some fibrous material and a small bone growth.
I have been using the CPM as well as performing stretches. I am currently performing a heal prop with 15 pounds on the knee. My therapist was able to push the knee down further today. It is still swollen and stiff. Worst thing is I can't go swimming during this awful heatwave. Best thing is I know I am going to ski this year.
