A 26-year-old member asked:

How soon can a knee manipulation be done if the previous one failed?

Soon: It can be done within a month if the doctor can justify it to the insurance company.

May not be effective: Depends on why the knee is stiff, post surgery or trauma. If previous manipulation failed, may need surgical release which could be arthroscopic or open.
