Specializes in Orthopedic Surgery
Focus on motion: Tibial plateau fxs can result on traumatic arthritis of the knee. Physical therapy is important after the fx has healed. Make sure bone has united then initiate therapy.

See the surgeon: You need to get full range of motion back. May need x-rays to see the anatomy and healing.

See your surgeon: 3 month after a tibial plateau fracture weight, bearing and physiotherapy should definitely be considered. You should be concerned and should see your surgeon for further instructions
