Change In Back Range Of Motion After Fusion
Burning sensation under left shoulder blade/back; medium pain that changes through the range of motion. Tall/lean, hist. Of collapsed lung (2 yrs ago)?
Neuromuscular pain: The change in pain with range of motion a little bit reassuring that it is muscle with some nerve involvement that increases with movement. I have that before with all the stress and the "knots". Still due to your risk and previous event a good exam by your pmd to assure no recurrence is indicated, maybe a cxr. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can take weeks: Maintaining full knee extension is far more important after acl surgery. Flexion usually advances toward normal over the first 1-3 wks. Full flexion, however, may take more than a month as any residual significant swelling will make absolute full flexion difficult to regain until the swelling completely resolves.

I had a tkr, then a manipulation and last week had scar tissue removed. No matter what i do, i can't get my range of motion back. Any tips?

I have had a "frozen shoulder" since february, once it finally gets back to normal, should I exspect to have full extention and range of motion as I had before this problem? I am a golfer so should I exspect to have my same swing capability?
6 years s/p a plantar release, osteotomy and 2 tendon transfer to correct a cavovarus deformity. Why don't i have full range of motion back yet?
